Thinking of getting Ultimaker 2: question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Thinking of getting Ultimaker 2: question

I understand the answers will have a bias, but I am curious why users here chose the UM instead of other brands. I am thinking about the replicator 2x, Up and Lultzbot. For various reasons all the others don't seem right for me. I don't want to limit myself to a small build platform. I would like the option to use various filament types.

Has the machine been reliable? Is it easy to calibrate? Does it clog up a lot? I presume I can use a standard STL file with its software?

All answers will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Big build platform = Yes

Reliable = Yes

Easy to calibrate = Very Yes

Clog up = No. ( well once but with material I wasn't familiar with, easy to unclog )

STL file = Yes

:)

I'm glad to see happy users.

Does anyone have any comparisons with Makergear's M2?
