Thinking about buying an ultimaker 2, but not sure yet.

Posted · Thinking about buying an ultimaker 2, but not sure yet.

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on an ultimaker, but have never used 3d printers before, and am wondering what it's like. I've made a few models before, but I was wondering if anyone here would like to give my model a spin on their ultimake to see if it would work, ideally a sample.

Thanks for reading,

    I strongly recommend using 3dhubs. You can choose which model printer (UMO, UM2, UM2GO, etc) you want and someone nearby will print your model and the price will likely be quite reasonable. When you go to pick up the model you can talk to the person who printed it and see their printer and ask them questions.

    That should print fine from the looks of it. I think if you have already a grasp with 3D modelling you'll have a good time with a 3D printer.
