    Makerbot Replicator Print Quality

    To all that replied here: thank you so much for your input. I have decided to purchase a FlashForge Creator X. Its a good machine with dual extruder and most importantly a local reseller. Thanks again. :smile:

    Makerbot Replicator Print Quality

    It is. I've been sitting breaking it away with a knife but not all wants to come off. It is a very tricky model; probably the most complex of what I usually work with. Still, I want to push the machines and see what it can do...

    Going through the posts from the back. This terminator head is the only one so that shows the detail I'm looking for: http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/467-post-your-

    I tend to agree. I don't that the reseller was the best at 3D printing. He was very helpful. He knew what he was talking about. perhaps though the practical side lacked some experience. I think the part was also printed way too fast. Seriously I'm not that interested in speed... quality comes first. My gut tells me it can do much better but lack of experience and time constraints made for a shoddy print.

    Ok I'll have to get permission to post the model. The sample doesn't look right to me though. Hopefully I'll soon be getting the sample from UP reseller. Curious to see how that will come out...

    Yeah I'm very interested in opinions of non-MB users too...
  8. This is not a dig at Makerbot :!: I sent a model of one of my projects the local Maketbot reseller to have a sample printed. My line of work is injection mould design and related product design (so mostly thin-wall stuff) so printing toy rockets and the like is not really a good test. I received the sample earlier this evening was quite shocked to honest. Its nowhere near is good as I expected. Obviously I don't expect it to be of moulded quality but this was quite poor. I have uploaded a screenshot of the model and a photo of the printed part. Note the circled areas in the screenshot. Is this result normal?

    Opinions on Ultimaker 2

    Ok. Is that the only glaring difference for you? What is the quality of the parts coming off the UP? What material do you use? I saw a video on youtube where the Y-axis (supporting the table) seemed to flex up and down. It was very slight and possibly just a play of light and shadow but in your opinion how stable and how accurate is the UP? I know this isn't injection moulding (my usual stomping ground) and I'm very familiar with CNC machines so I know all about the precision issues of rotary scale and backlash... I don't expect absolute accuracy. However I'd like to get as close as possible. Any and all information is welcome. Just so its been said I have short-listed the following: Airwolf AW3D HD Makerbot Replicator 2x Ultimaker 2 UP Plus 2 Zortrax M200 I have contacted all the manufacturers and suppliers for the above but would appreciate feedback from users too.

    How many people actually print at that resolution? 0.1mm is already pretty small...

    My mistake. He said that only the mini had an enclosure. :oops:

    Opinions on Ultimaker 2

    Thanks for your reply Sander. Yes, you're right. Recipients of damaged printers all said that they were looked after promptly. My concern though is that I am very far from Europe and it'll take so much longer. Whatever machine I decide to get already has plenty work lined up and I can't afford for it to sit idly...
