@fabiscafe – Prusa i3 clone here. Using Cura slicer. Experience has been hit or miss. I get about one good print for every five. I’d recommend avoiding FDM unless you absolutely need too. Resin printing is by far a better quality and resolution, and you don’t have the issues around delamination. If you MUST go with FDM, make sure to spend a ton of time on testing and experimenting, and be sure to get a heated bed, excellent hot end cooling, and an auto leveller. Also, plan to use about 3-5x the amount of filament for each project, and be careful about storage of your filaments. PLA in particular, absorbs water and can make a mess. If you use ABS, a good idea is to enclose and heat the area around the printer, and only cool it slowly after the print has finished, otherwise you’ll end up with bowing and warping. Hope that helps! Good luck 👍
