TODAY'S HISTORY LESSON: the oldest known instance of a groupchat dates back to the 1880s.

In the 1880s, farmers discovered that they could connect their phones to their barbed wire fences, and create a rudimentary communications network. Up to 20 people could be connected at once, but due to the lack of any numbers, if you made a call, EVERYONE'S phone would ring. Many farmers found that this actually helped with the loneliness and depression associated with the isolation of farming.

Which 3D printer would you recommend to someone who got little time for fine tuning and constant maintenence of the device?

In other words: sturdy and accurate over speed, auto-levelling and filament sensor are probably a must-have?

Looking forward to seeing your recommendations!
