Lol, Yeah like how longs a piece of string...
I think most of us take their 3d printing seriously, as we all want the best results we can get form the equipment we have.
The other way of looking at it as a hobby is I don't use it for a living.
When I purchased the printer, cost was an issue, and wrongly or rightly I have to live with the choice I made.
I was looking into the possibility of getting a duet in the future, but as I've now killed my motherboard, my arm is now forced into getting one and a Duet it will be.
I've had lots of answers to questions I've not yet asked, but these are all welcome, as I would have been asking these questions anyway, so I'm very grateful for all this input.
Basically, I have a dead printer, I'm a mac user, I wish to have a PanelDue along with a Duet, I wish to be able to not only use the PanelDue but also connect it to my mac that's 2.5mm across the room, I would like to (but not essential) Connect to another mac in another room, I don't have (is it cat6 cabling) a wired network in my house, I have wifi, but have some TP Link Pass through Powerline adaptors.
Once I have a Duet, PanelDue and my printer functioning again, the next thing maybe a Mic6 bed with 3 point levelling and possibly a 3rd Z axis.
