I am a Drafting/Design instructor in Nebraska, USA. I have been researching 3-D printers with the hope of obtaining one to enhance my students' learning, until I stumbled upon the Ultimaker this was merely a far fetched dream. However, before I can go ahead with anything I have been told to do some more research resulting in the following questions.
Is there anyone in the general Nebraska area who has an Ultimaker that I would be able to see in person?
Is there a possibility of obtaining a small example of a printed part from someone which I could use in a school board presentation?
Those of you with the Ultimaker, in your opinion would the machine stand up to the type of use it would be exposed to in a school setting?
Is it possible to print a part drawn in INVENTOR?
These are the questions I have as of right now... I may have more as time passes. I am open to any and all advice on the situation.
Thank you in advance for all the help!!!
