Which to buy?

I'm mainly interested in printing with nylon, which according to this reviews says the ultimaker+ can handle. http://www.makershed.com/pages/3d-printer-comparison

But the Ultimaker2 is supposed to be easiest to use out of the box, (and frankly I'd rather be using then hacking my printer).

I'm leaning towards the Ultimaker2 because I know that you can use bridge and t-glass with most printers, but I'm wondering if there are any gotchas, or concerns that I might not have thought about.

Has anybody had a bad experience with nylon on either one?

    Hi and welcome :)

    I never tried nylon myself. From what i know about it, it's not the easiest material to print with, the main difficulty is adhesion to the build plate i think. Some users are printing nylon here, they will give you better advise than me.
