UP Printer vs Ultimaker

Recommended Posts

More expensive doesn't always mean better. However, the UP! doesn't have a bowden tube, which makes it slower but less problematic with stringing. At 150x150 it's smaller then the ultimaker. And it seems to run on closed software. I like the open nature of the Ultimaker. You can tinker and hack with every single part.

I personally didn't think the Ultimaker required much tweaking at all. Once I found the only mechanical problem I had I was printing with ease. It does take 8 hours of assembly.

If I had a spare 2k laying around I wouldn't get a 2nd 3D printer, but a laser cutter.

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
