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

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
