  1. Hi lads/lasses, as a complete newbie I thought this would be a good place to ask for advice. I don't have a printer yet. I read another review in which the Ultimaker 2 was pipped by the Cube Pro Trio. I looked into it and I liked the look of its software and ability to print with nylon. I didn't much like the price though, nor its use of proprietary filaments. I then saw this review and had a look at the Ultimaker 2. It seemed ideal, with its great resolution. Then I came to this forum and found that it will never have 2 filament heads. Also, it seems that one has to do a lot of ongoing maintenance with this printer. It seems to be something of a DIY machine, although there is nothing intrinsically wrong with that! I should point out that I will be using my printer to produce prototypes for products which will eventually be produced in metal, and will involve gears, threads, articulated joints etc. Would the Cube Pro have the same issues? Everyone here seems to love their printer. Does the inability to use 2 filament types simultaneously not detract too much from its utility? Any advice gratefully received. All the best, Gerald.
