Hi, I live in the U.S. and would like to purchase an Ultimaker 2, but have a few questions and concerns first.
1. Will the lead time for the printer arriving really be 6-8weeks if I order from Ultimaker?
2. Is there any distributor (affiliated or not afflilated with Ultimaker) in the U.S. that I could buy from or order parts in the future from?
3. If my printer breaks, it it feasible to get parts locally and fix it myself, or must I ship the printer back to Europe to be repaired?
I'd really like to buy an Ultimaker 2, I'm just a little worried that if it breaks, I won't be able to fix it and there will be no repair shop in the country to help me.
Some background: I am an engineering student and have had some experience with fixing mechanical and electrical things, but never 3D printers.
Thanks so much!
