Compassion: Ultimaker 2 Vs. Stratasys UPrint-Se

Recommended Posts

Stratasys printers arnt really a great thing to compare to something 1/8th the price Ofc you will get the major drawbacks like the filament is £175 per cartridge so that's x2 because you need a support cartridge to print which isn't an option you have to print with support but it has it's bennifits that it can be super precise and accurate that's why there so expensive I personally run a dimension 1200es but being industrial means there's no open source stuff available for them such as there is a fixed layer height of 0.254mm and for the print se it's 0.174 but sat here printing my friends ultimaker is so much better than waiting 35 mins for the heated build chamber to warm upto 70° and the abs melts at 300° too hot for me but that's industrial for ya.

And you said about diassasembling one yeah you might not want to do that when one of the colleges turned the power of at the mains whilst it was booted up we had a guy come in anyway to change the head 2500 : /... And he had to take the complete case of the machine to re flash the software and it's £90 callout per hour

    • "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.
