Posted · HELP PLEASE!!!! Wanting to buy an Ultimaker

Have been looking at getting a 3D printer for about 2 months and have decide that this is the one i want...What is scaring me a bit is looking through many ofthe posts and getting worried that i may not have the skills needed to get quality printing outputs. I read about temp settings and nozzle heads being loose and adhesion layers...etc...etc..This unit has everything i was wanting in one but i am getting worried that it is the kind of thing that needs constant tweaking to get good quality. Is that normal with all 3D Printers at this level? Is it a labor of love and after an extended period of time and money you start getting the quality you want? Or am i just in over my head and forget about it?

Thank you in advance

    I was a bit worried about that too :)

    But the great thing is, after I put the Ultimaker together, I have a pretty good idea how it works, and can adjust if needed.

    The software (Cura) runs very good after install, and I get great prints without tinkering with the software,

    and you can make adjustments, if you see certain prints have not the desired effect.

    you will have to put a bit of time into it, t get the hang of all the stuff, but the more time you put in the better the prints get :)

    Most tweaking with settings is about changing the print quality from good to awesome.

    The biggest problem I see, on the forums, groups and in person, is that people have mechanical issues (wrong assembly) and try to fix that the wrong way, with setting changes for example.
