Nice, that's awesome, especially with the 12x12x15.75" build plate!! That has now moved to the top of my list come tax time. Thanks bro!! :)
I know it's a bit above your price range but the prusa i3 mk2 original is one of the best qualities for the price. I'm not sure about the one Noah posted but after tons of research I would recommend the prusa :) you should see some of the prints @Gman has done with it. Their beautiful.
Printed this random thing today. I'll let the MK2 speak for itself http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd506/gman_modz/20170108_215755_zpspnnm6axt.jpg
That is f'ing awesome Gman!! it's really a "Ya get what ya pay for" so I can always go a bit higher in $$ if it's worth it. The two main concerns I have is access to good CAD software, (too old for school so no access that way) and it looks like it ships from over seas which can be a bit of a concern for replacement or repair... Maybe worried about nothing but it is a big investment. :)
