wanting to get my first 3d printer don't want something to cheap but not too expensive, something just to dick around with and learn the process, any good recommendations?
Look at Creality, the Ender 3 is a very popular and afforable printer with lot's of support, and upgrades to print yourself.
Depending on how much you want to spend, you could also go for the CR-20, it's easier to assemble and has some new features. The CR-10 is another option if you need very large build volume.
I'd suggest looking at some comparisons of these online and check prices of shops available to you.
I bought the CR-20 as my first printer because it was cheap where i bought it, only needs 6 screws to assemble the whole thing. It's very easy to use and prints very well.
I don't know if the Ender 3 comes with a flexible build plate, if it doesn't come with a flexible build plate i reccomend getting one, they're pretty cheap.
