Makerbot method vs Ultimaker 5s

Recommended Posts

Posted · Makerbot method vs Ultimaker 5s

Hello everyone, up to recently I have considering a Makerbot method 3d printer. I have known about Ultimaker for some times but never really realized how sophisticated they seem to be. I guess if ford is using them.. they cant be that bad. Lol

 

I like that you can replace the nozzles easily on the Ultimaker and use engineering materials. 

 

With a this said, how does a 5S or 3S compare to the Method? 

 

Things that are important to me are dimesional accuracy and a smooth or consistent surface.

 

Thank you.

Well my S5 is not that accurate. I was looking at the Method yestrday and considering the price of a S5 PRO bundle I would go with Method instead.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
