UP Printer vs Ultimaker

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.
