Printing in schools

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing in schools

Hi I go to a small school and we got a grant recently for whatever we wanted. We decided to get a 3D printer, among other things. First we saw the Printrbot simple metal, then the Da Vinci, we finally came across the Ultimaker. You guys should make a cheaper 3D printer for schools or DIYers that dont have that much money.

Hi and welcome

The Ultimaker kit is not that expensive and is a great start for getting into 3d printing. You have to build the kit but it's a great way to know how the printer works, and as a final result you have a very good printer that won't dissapoint you which is a great plus :)

I believe the um2 go was created to be that cheaper alternative.

Then again, knowing most schools here, cheap is never cheap enough, as they tend to look at the initial price and not as much towards quality in the long run.
