Which to buy?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
