which 3D printer set up? UK based user

Recommended Posts

Thank you for replying.

I did not realise that ultimaker make only one model,that makes choice simpler if I decide to buy! I need to make housings (enclosures) for devises which are used in outdoor sports application, it looks as ultimaker can help with rapid prototyping and may be with one off custom products.

Is here someone can print me a sample to look at if I provide a file? I am prepared to pay, heaving the part in hands will help to make a decision on purchasing.

I have to ask it..

why does being in Glasgow affect any of the answers?

Extreme shipping costs for the machine and any future parts, upgrades, or supplies. Shipping costs from the Netherlands, are horrible if you don't live there. In my case, I've spent about $600 total in shipping. I could have bought another brand printer kit for that.

    • "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.
