I bought this one during the prime day sales and have been impressed with what it can do.
I also downloaded the free version of Fusion 360 and have been teaching my 9 year old how to make models and print them.
It’s very easy and straightforward.

We bought this last year for my 11yr old who outgrew the “toy box” one.
It’s sophisticated enough that it lets you do model development with real 3d apps, yet can also load a file and hit print. supports cheap and forgiving PLA and the higher end ABS material, and has more advanced features like a heated bed, auto-level, and can tie into a raspberryPI print server with print cam, real time ets.
200-300 for a teen, especially this time of year is a good starting point.

Do 3d printers normally come with the needed supplies? I didn't see it mentioned on Amazon but I could have missed it.
