Ultimaker 2 Extended Review

Recommended Posts

Ha, that was a pretty accurate video. I've had my Ultimaker 2 Extended for about 2 months now, and experienced some of the same issues. But going through the learning curve and figuring out how to model things to print well, along with getting my settings tuned in to what I'm printing, has led to some GREAT prints.

I kind of disagree with him that it's not a beginner-level 3D printer. Maybe for cost reasons it might not appeal to hobby-level beginners, but as far as using the machine, I think it's been very easy. I didn't have any 3D printing experience before I got it, and had heard all kinds of horror stories about how difficult it would be. But it's been a very good machine.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
