Geeetech “Prusa” i3 pro B

A Cheap and Cheerful printer(?)… Well maybe just cheap

There is a cosmetic beauty salon at my local shopping center where they offer teeth whitening, laser wrinkle removal and botox injections. The staff there dress in professional looking medical scrubs, they could almost pass for nurses. I have to keep reminding myself though “just because you dress like a nurse doesn’t make you a nurse”. WTF does this have to do with a cheap 3D printer? Simply put, just because you call yourself a Prusa doesn’t make you a Prusa.

So this ain’t an original Prusa, but it certainly isn’t priced like one either. This Geeeeeeeeeeeetech Prusa i3 is cheap, really cheap – infact for under 200 dollarydoos you could have bought a full DIY kit and have yourself a entry level 3D printer ready to go.
