(extracted from guide 11 - tips and tricks) 

Question: Do you (often) post process your 3D prints, or are they often good to use straight out of the Ultimaker? If you do, what is it that you most often do? 

Answer @Stefania Dinea : I usually use them as they come out of the printer. However sometimes some extra attention is needed. See previous comments.


Question: Is there perhaps a post-processing technique you would like to apply but are not familiar with yet? 

Answer @Stefania Dinea : A sanding machine ?! I heard there are gadgets that you can lay a model in for sanding. I am not sure for which techniques of printing they are used for but they sound awesome. 


Question: I just started a new job and we want to exhibit our Revit models as 3D printed models. What do you think we should invest in? Ultimaker 3 or 3Extension? Or do you feel Ultimaker S5 is better suited? Maybe some other suppliers of 3D-printers should be considered?

Answer @Stefania Dinea : Well, I have personally tested all low end brands and I can tell you for sure cheap comes with the included headaches. 

The Ultimaker brand usually stands that their products will last a very long time and it never loses the intended purpose. The UM2 is a very reliable and usefull printer. However the biggest complaint in architecture was size, that is why the UM S5 came out in a different format than what we are used to. When you buy a printer for your company then I suggest the latest version available on the market, however if it’s for personal use, then whatever fits your budget.
