  1. Hello, I have been researching 3d printers and i am interested in purchasing an Ultimaker 2. I'll try and keep my story and questions brief. In 2007 I had an invention idea, and had a company very interested in it. We signed a royalty agreement and they were going to take on the prototyping (with my original design and guidance) and produce the part. after 2 years + of producing only one thermoformed prototype and then allowing things to stagnate, and then deciding not to move ahead, it left a bad taste for me as a newbie (and certainly not a businessman). That being said, I have a few more ideas I'd like to pursue, but do not want to leave it in the hands of a company that may, or may not, proceed with the concept. So, in an effort to gain more control (at least in the concepts infancy) I want to try my own prototyping to create reasonable professional models to show potential manufactuers/companies. I think I can handle producing what I need using some form of CAD program, but am worried (based on my researching of 3d printing websites etc) that producing things on a 3D printer is "a pain in the ass" and very difficult to achieve, due to failures, clogging, warping, not sticking, levelling....blah blah blah. I'm just a working guy, who wants to work on these extracurricular activities without breaking the bank, and/or pulling what's left of my hair out with a technology that will drive me crazy! Any advice, knowledge, similar experience, or viewpoint is sincerely welcome. Have a great day. John (Canadian eh)
  2. Hi (bonjour) Olivier, I have been researching 3d printers and i think I've settled on the ultimaker 2. Are you still selling yours? I'm in Ottawa so it is very handy! Either email me or call at 613-720-1780. Thanks, John
