Looking to buy a 3D printer.
Anybody here have one that can offer up some advice? Pros / cons, Resin vs Filament? Must be SolidWorks compatible.

It depends on what your budget allows and what you want to build. I work for a school district and we've invested in Makerbots which were around $2500 at the time. They're a little cheaper now. The units give you total control over the extruder temperature (which is partly to control project curl) and is pretty much ready to go out of the box. They use filament and are pretty darn bulletproof.
