The Maker only needs basic 3d printing information to use the Sindoh. This printer is perfect for those whom are completely new to 3D printing, or just want a part for a project but don’t want to learn 3d printing in depth. The Maker has limited control of the machines parts, to make changes to the machine itself. But leaves very little room for human error causing a print to fail.
