  1. I have a few follow up questions if possible. 1) The PolyBox looks great but it seems to only offer passive de-humidification. Is there perhaps a model that is active drying yet still affordable? 2) How well has your machine dealt with flexible filament? Lets say the UM TPU 95A. I know a lot of people swear by only using direct drive extruders with flexible materials. However, how well do these work? 3) Is there a power failure mode? Living in the PNW trees fall on power lines often and the power goes out, or might just flicker with the wind, etc. Anyway to
  2. Thank you sincerely to all the replies here. The information from all of the people who have used these machines is valuable. It is also a vote of confidence in this machine. I do believe we will invest in the S5. It seems as though to nail the PVA it really has to be kept perfect. I will explore breakaway but I really like to gravitate towards a single solution. With that being said I like to integrated material storage offered by UM however the nearly $3,300 price tag makes it something we will look at in the future.
  3. Long story short my company is looking for a new 3D printer. We have had a nearly continually running Ultimaker 2 since 2014. It is a champion. However, it does not do dual extrusion - easily. I bought it because it was marketed that it would have the function. Never panned out. Enter PRUSA. I watched as they developed the MMU2 Multi-Extrusion upgrade. I purchased the i3 MK3S printer and then patiently waited 8 weeks for the printer then another 4 weeks for the MMU2. Both in kit form. Wow, that was a lot of time and energy to setup and it really doesn't run that well. It's cool and
  4. Looking at ordering an S5 or S3 and I am curious if there are safer ways to ship these? Say if we are based in the USA can MatterHackers ship with a better company? It would be really nice to have the new machine in working order when it arrives. I know shipping can be tricky though.
  5. As someone looking at purchasing a nearly $10k printer bundle this is slightly unnerving to think it can still get bricked, and if it does, it has to be sent back. How common is this? Was the problem ever fixed with the OP?
