I have been all over trying to find more information on the knk 3D printer but even the forum is sparse...I do remember quite a few of the MTC users bought the 3D printer and I was wondering how well it has stood up.  It is currently a great price point compared to similar printers with similar specs.  I am a complete beginner but I have wanted a 3D printer for years. Can anyone help? 
What kinds of filaments have you printed with? 
Is the overall experience satisfying?
Is it a waste of money? 

I definitely have a use for it.  I would love to cut custom cookie cutters.  The possibilities are really endless in my mine. TIA

    If you're on Facebook, go to our FB page and have a look at some of the cool things that KNP3D owners have printed;

    I've only printed with PLA and ABS.  I think Ron at KNK USA has tested other types, like rubber and maybe wood filaments?  I'm not the best person to ask because I'm a cutter nut!  lol  I enjoy cutting paper and vinyl because those are what I need in my own hobbies.  I also struggle with 3D designing. I could do the simple things like custom shaped buttons and pendants and charms. But anything beyond that required more time than I had available.  I DID always imagine doing cookie cutters, though!

    I have used my KnP3D printer since last fall. I've printed with PLA and PET-G with good results. I haven't tried ABS or other types of filament because I don't want to deal with the fumes. I've printed a lot of files I've found online, but have also designed my own files - mostly cookie cutters and boxes. I do my basic designing in MTC to get the layout and sizing how I want it, then export it as svg's and import those into 123D Design to extrude them and export the finished design as an stl for printing. The KnP3D has worked nearly flawlessly for me and I have used it way more than I expected to. I have had filament jam in the extruder twice, but KnK quickly supplied me with the info I needed to remove it to clear the jam. You won't find a 3D printer with better support than KnK provides.
