I am a student, 3 years ago, I saw for the first time a 3D-Printer, an Ultimaker 2 in a FabLab. It was/is a nice machine. It works very well. I wanted to make my own printer so I bought an Velleman DIY kit. But the quality of the prints aren't very good, so I sell it and bought an Ultimaker Original. Now I have an Ultimaker 2 Extended +. A beautiful machine! I do a student job at FabLab Factory, I'm there the 3D-Printing specialist and I must solve all problems with the printers. FabLab Factory is a company that helps schools/companies start her own FabLab. We also sell all Ultimaker Printers/Parts so you can contact me if you're looking for something!
