I have used other 3D printers in this price range and one industrial/professional one. This is by far my favorite 3D printer. Ultimaker has some great videos and troubleshooting guides.
The only con I can think off is the placement of the cable to the print head from the back of the machine is right next to the feeder for the filament. Bad design, but it works.
The best feature of the ultimaker is the lightweight print head. The guide/motion system is very clever, and about as light as can be. That light weight means there are very few vibrations and low noise compared to other 3d printers.
The print bed is very nice heated glass, and stays consistently level. Although it is the weak link of the system, as it will start to shake as printing speeds increase, and is the limiting factory to the speed that this machine can print cleanly. At lower speeds or with simply shaped prints, this shaking does not exist at all.
Compared to the Wasp Delta I just received, this thing is slow and inaccurate. There are better printers out there, and this thing isn't cheap. But it is fantasticly quiet, smooth, and mindlessly simple. 5 stars.
(4.5 stars because it uses the less common 2.85 mm filament)
My 14 year old son loves to print things on my Ultimaker, even though I gave him my old Printrbot.
Here's a short 3 minute timelapse video of my Ultimaker 2+ printing a crayon holder for my 3 year old daughter: https://youtu.be/BPNfzwPfD0k
I also used my Ultimaker 2+ to print a brushless motor adapter plate of my own design for a DIY bicycle generator project:[...]
She uses this crayon holder all the time. Recently, I used the Ultimaker 2+ to 3d print some pony figurines from Thingiverse. She loves those too!
I'm not affiliate with Ultimaker in any way. I paid full price for my machine. I just think they make a very nice machine and I like to review tools I appreciate.
For the past year, we have been using this printer regularly in the course of our product development and we have been summarily impressed with the output.
The printer's Pros far exceed the minimal Cons.
I have found it's best to apply 4" 3M Blue tape to the glass bed. The initial print layer sticks to the tape (and separates) with more conviction than if printed directly onto the bare glass bed. The extruded head can be finicky. However, routine maintenance/cleaning allows for more stable printing. We always print (SolidWorks files) directly from SD card and have yet to experience a corrupted print. We have the printer on a homemade stand, which dampens vibrations and noise.
I would love to share pics of what we've printed (and what is now with a plastics injection mold shop), but we're awaiting word back from USPTO.
I/we have NO regrets buying the U2 printer and are even considering an U3+ only to speed up product development.
This printer is easily the best layer printer I've ever used. The settings in the native cura sliced are extremely powerful, the on board menus and options are very user friendly, maintenance is a breeze, and the customer support for beginners or people who just want to learn to make better prints is beyond superb. I have never worked with a better company than dynism (supplier) and ultimaker (manufacturer). The staff at both levels have been flawless, involved, helpful, and patient. Truly the best.
The print quality is really the highlight. I've used a da Vinci 1, a dremel, and about a dozen others. I've got friends with easily a dozen more different models. My conversations and hands on experience covers easily 20 unique brands and models. Bragging aside, this is the ONLY printer I've ever used where I opened the box and had my first test print started within fifteen minutes. This printer also puts out EXTREMELY good resolution. I've seen some slightly better, but not for the same price. The prints whip out pretty fast, too. I get accurate, clean prints at 50mm/s without any real trouble. Some others will print at that speed but need 20-30mm/s for durability or precision. Not here.
This is top of the market precision, durability, accessibility, and overall performance. It even has a relatively large, heated bed. The only way it could be better is if it had multi-extrusion capability. Since I hand paint most parts that need to be colored, this is totally a non-issue. But printing precolored parts would be fun.
The thing is also gorgeous. Apple computer gorgeous. Sleek lines, bright LED's, an a-dork-able little robot on the side; it's easily the centerpiece of my livingroom. (Don't print cheap PLA or any ABS/other materials indoors!)
Five stars. No hesitation, 10/10 would recommend to any skill level.
