first of all, your nozzle is way to close to the bed. you should lower it quite a bit. I don't know what the surface is made of, but putting a glass or aluminum plate on top can never be a bad idea. if you could maybe watch the printer for a while when it is printing the first layer, that would help a lot. keep an eye on the Z-axis lead screws. do they turn(lifting the nozzle) when it starts printing higher? this way we know if it is a software issue or a REALLY weird bed. in case it is the latter, try a glass/ alu plate like i suggested above.

For a ten year old, i would recommend sometibg along the lines of cr-10. That is, if you are willing to operate it for him. If he wants to do it himself, teartime’s cetus i good budget option. Unless you are a really advanced user, its really good. Also, you can actually talk to the company, not like other printers at that price, where customer support is basicly unexistant. It comes with its own software, so you dont have to tinker with it. Its basicly the go to option for plug play on a budget.

over the last year, i have gathered of mot of 3d printing hardware and electronics. My collection is now to the point of being able to build an entire 3d printer out of it. I already own a prusa mk2, a tronxy and a tevo little monster. So i wanted to build something different from these machines.  I also have acces to a laser cutter, so a laser cut frame would be prefered.

thx for the fast replies! i have decided to go with the MK3 for now. i will probably end up printing parts with it in combination with my lasercutter and some mechanical parts from my old printer to make a brand new big volume 3D printer. i'm thinking of a slightly modified hypercube, in order for it to use laser cut acrylic instead of aluminium extrusions. i ordered the kit version of the MK3, i hope i will be able to build it without too many issues.
