Stay the hell away from ABS!
Never touch your build plate with your hands (Duh but i ruined some prints like that)
Keep your filament in airtight containers with silica gel.
Do not touch a hot extruder nozzle. Even to get that blob of plastic off. It hurts.
Get a heavy duty craft knife - cleaning prints without one is a pain.
Plastic primer (I use the etching kind) and some water paper (I use 120, then 360, then primer) give you far smoother finished prints.
Heated and auto leveling beds are your friend
Build Tak is awesome!
As for supplies I have had insanely good service from DIYElectronics. Next day delivery. I'm in PTA and they're in Durban
Anyway that's my 2c. Shampoo is the expert though!
