I have an Ultimaker currently and I like the results I am getting with it. However, I wish to try out another brand of printer. What do you guys recommend for printers around $600 or less? Printrbot?

    I recommend against the PrintrBot LC+. I borrowed one from a friend (he has my UM right now) and, I'm not that happy about it. It's quite wobbly and it's impossible to keep the platform level. It's also a wire mess that tangles up easy.

    You might want to look into a Prusa i3 kit or something like that. Which looks quite a solid design for a nice price.

    I think I am going to have to agree with you. It appears to be a very well thought out design.
