Hi,

I am impentiently awaiting my Ultimaker 2 (should get here on Wednesday) which will replace a Makerbot replicator (first gen). The makerbot has been great for learning, but getting a good print requires a lot of babysitting and constantly tweaking the machine. I am hoping that the ultimaker 2 will give me more time printing and less time tweaking. I have not printed with PLA before ( only ABS ), so new experience there.

For 3d I use C4D, Rhino and solid works.

cheers.

Welcome! Not long to wait now :-) If nothing else, printing PLA should make for a far easier print experience than using ABS.
