Purchased the Creality 10S Pro V2 six months ago on special for around US$400.
Been a great workhorse and has all the extras included, like BL Touch, metal drives, thermal runaway etc.
Having a break from pinball for a while, so started printing out a full size R2D2.
About 18KG PLA+, 4KG ABS, 1KG TPU and around 2,000+ print hrs later, I can finally get to the painting and installing motor drives stage.
Some prints were 40+hrs, so occasionally watched on my phone from work on a cheap security camera pointing at the bed and using a Wi-Fi power adaptor to kill power if a nozzle blockage, or if a print gets knocked over which happened a couple of times.
Electric heater used whilst I was home to bring room temperature up to 30C (86F) for ABS only.
If anyone else is interested, scroll down this Mr Baddeley’s Patreon page for his free Onedrive link to the R2D2 STLs. Become a member and you have access to other droids, such as BB8.
I really do need to get back to pinball though
