I decided to get the Prusa Mini recently for my home lab. Here's the breakout of how much I had to pay -
|Cost||36686 INR||488 USD|
|Customs||16173 INR||This comes to 44% of the cost. The split is 28% GST, 7.5% customs, and the rest was DHL's handling charges|
44% feels okay for importing a really good FDM printer like the Prusa Mini, but if I was getting a SLA printer like Prusa SL1 which starts at 1400$ - it would mean I end up paying over 2000$ for it.
