Hello all, So here's my question. I am a noob and I have been reading this forum for several weeks. I'm low-budget, and my main concern is making stuff that looks cool, but I'm not picky about accuracy. I don't want to mess around with pepakura (too complicated, expensive, and nasty chemicals) I'm doubtful about foam (getting the shape right and all that) and so what I'm looking at is mostly cardboard and repurposing existing items like airsoft helmets and motox armor and whatever random junk I run across for cheap or free. I'm really impressed by the detail and apparent "ease" of printing 3d models (download a model and go about your life while it takes forever and a day to print) but I'm not sure if it is cheap ($30-$60 to print a full-size helmet?) or super expensive ($100+). Basically, I just want to know what I'm up against. Is 3d printing only for the serious ones, or is it noob and budget friendly? I'm totally open to cold hard reality, as I realize that this is a expensive hobby. At the end of the day, I'll be okay admiring other people's work, and I can still throw together some neat stuff. (Or get rich when I'm older and let other people do the work for me) Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated!
