Thanks Daid, I went ahead and got an Ultimaker Robot sent and am pretty happy with the little guy, seems strong and most of the details are spot on. I'm really interested in playing with the infill (to test for strength) and the opacity (or lack thereof) when using transparent/uncolored PLA. I was hoping to be able to experiment with this before buying the whole Ultimaker.
Working at Purdue University and need some very simple sample parts printed. Looking to buy an ultimaker if everything comes out correct and strength is okay. Would be willing to pay for these parts. I would also prefer parts be transparent, but could supply the PLA needed (especially if you're close). Please email me or pm if you're interested or know of somebody who is. Thanks.
