    Anyone tried AC3D ?

    Just came across this software, has anyone tried it out? AC3D: http://www.inivis.com/index.html
  2. There is a new SLA machine, Pegasus Touch, on kickstarter, at about 60% cost of Form 1(and 7"x7" build area, but it's "order now, wait 'til summer"): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fsl/pegasus-touch-laser-sla-3d-printer-low-cost-high-q It's manufactured by laser specialists/laser cutter manufacturers.

    Ultimaker 2 vs Zortrax M200

    On the kickstarter page, it did list the print speed as 100mm/sec, and potentially 400mm/s.
  4. Don't know about import fees, but shipping for me from California was only about $30 (and its the same for UM2). I don't think ordering from Europe will beat that when you look at total cost, including shipping (which I've read from others is between $100-200 for the UM1)... as well as the import fees that you were concerned about. (However, maybe this shipping charge from Europe actually represents these fees you are inquiring into)

    Ultimaker 2, for sale in US

    Ultimaker 2 now listed for sale in the US (along with UM1), through Makershed. However, product "availability" is indicated "currently unavailable". I ordered the UM1 from them. Avoids all the extra fees, and shipping is from California.

    Which Printer Should I Buy?

    Here's a good list of choices: http://www.3ders.org/pricecompare/3dprinters/

    Moment of Inspiration

    Love it too. Most intuitive program for me. I got into it after seeing incredible Youtube tutorials and vids of what some can do in no time compared to other CAD's. Almost no learning curve. You can get it for a little less (USD 260) though this authorized reseller: http://www.3d-ware.co.nz/purchase.html There is also a student version for much less (around USD 70), but you need to prove credentials.

    New 8"x8" area heated aluminum build plate for $49

    Just realized that's the same bed as previous model, but still 8x8...
  11. Solidoodle just introduced its new model 4. It has a heated aluminum bed with 8"x8" build area, which can be bought separately, for $49: http://store.solidoodle.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=63_67&product_id=92 Any thoughts on fitting this onto the original Ultimaker?

    UM2 - First Problems, Successes

    I'm still in the buying, or "decision making", process between the original UM and UM2. I'm a little confused - are these features that are present with the original Ultimaker that have somehow been removed? Is it removed through the updates to Cura or by hardware changes? (i'm referring to "pause print", "change filament", "release steppers", etc.)

    MAKE 3D Printer Test...

    MAKE 3D Printer Test...

    Also given a good review: the Felix 2.0, as the big surprise - anyone familiar with it? Says it "prints well out of the box". It uses SFACT for slicing, which I have never heard of. Prints slowly but has heated bed. Might beat out the Afinia. Generally, the review seems to have been conducted early on for the UM2, so any recent software adjustments or printer issue improvements wouldn't have made it, and the article suggests as much. Whereas, the Replicator 2 is essentially an improved and upgraded version of last year's. At least that's what I took from the article. The different filaments may be the ones that the manufacturers included with the printer - at least that's what I thought when I saw the blue used with the UM2 - it looks like the blue filament that ships with it. What didn't look so great to me was the Form1 print. I expected it would be flawless given the technology it uses.

    Do you know whether the new UM2 has the same issue?
