Just in case anyone ventures here later with either or both of the above.....
I've printed over 1000 hours of items now with my printer and TurboCAD v11 and have not only fully paid for the printer through sales, but am now making a profit on my printer
But I also have used them both to create some amazing stuff for the home. The possibilities are nearly endless. I can't ever see being without the 3D printer and TurboCAD at this point.
My setup is not top of the line by any means but the printer does a super job and so does TC v11 Pro.
Couldn't be happier.
