Hello Guys,

 

I am thinking to get a MakerBot Replicator+.

Can anyone share using experience about it?

 

If there is any better option then please suggest.

Thank you very much... :)

An year ago I had to choose a 3D printer for my company (with no price limitation), and I chose an Ultimaker 3 Ex because :

- open source

- open hardware

- open software

- Not a a company that started open source then was bought by the biggest 3D name (stratasys) then closed everything for the user, with no compatibility with other filaments brands, no 3rd party brands parts (like solex -_^)

- awesome community (that really helped me when I started)

- support filaments like PVA with a real dual extrusion

- good repetability

- good reputation

- no regrets

 

the things I like about the makerbot is the awesome look, enclosed printer, HMI, and filament roll placement, I cannot tell about the print quality because I never used one.

I would like to second everything @Swissengineer says.

 

I think Makerbots are actually fairly decent printers, but I don't think I would want to give them my money.

 

So many printer manufacturers I would rather support. I would go with Ultimaker, Lulzbot, or Prusa () have first hand knowledge of all of those).  I hear good things about MakerGear.  The BCN Sigma sounds pretty nifty.  So many other options.
