Ultimaker 2+ plus 3D printer showcase
#1
Just to show you my Ultimaker 2+, I have been running it for 2 months now, very happy with it!

It's a pretty expensive 3D printer, But it came assembled, and almost just work straight out of the box, there is no messing around with parts and software... all I need to do was to run through the print bed calibration and that's it. I guess you get what you pay for Smile

Print quality is also excellent. There are 3 preset levels of detail: Fast, Normal and Fine. I mainly use Normal and the quality is better than most printing i have seen from 3D printing shops. But you can also fine tune your setting sin the software (Cura - which is written by the Ultimaker as well)

Some spec of the printer:
filament: 2.85mm - 3mm filament
Heated print bed: yes

We got one where I work.  I love it (sort of puts my personal one to shame...).  What is the black stuff you are using on the print bed?

it's the BUILDTAK 3D PRINT SURFACE, it helps prints stick to the bed without the need for glue or tapes Smile

looks great, 
i've checked the price... it's a piece of  Poop (the price)

curious to ask, what are the most useful things you have printed (beside stuff for multi-rotors) - (over the net i've seen people claiming that most useful stuff was the redbull can holder and phone stand... i'm not convinced)
My biggest mental challenge at the moment is convincing my self that (i need it and) it will be useful after i buy some cheap version to start with.
All the best

@Grisha0

Usefull printed parts all depend on the person printing it, i first got into the 3D printing hobby with the same attitude as you (i want one but what will i use it for ??? )

most usefull objects for me :

charging stand for the  father in law's Samsung (wireless charging)
Phone holder specially designed for the AUDi A3 and again my father in law's Samsung
Glasses holder for the wife (otherwise she keeps losing them)
charging stand for my Pebble watch
Taranis mods and spare backdoors to use when i'm hydrodipping them
Gimbal protectors for all my transmitters 
Logo nightlights for my kids
Pokemon / Star Wars / whatever toys for the boys 
Cool skull gadgets for myself :-)

My printer is working about 2 or 3 times a week and i still love it. 
It's so easy just checking Thingiverse for new stuff or new finds, slicing the objects , choosing the material and start printing .

If you are a little bit interested in DIY mods/ hacks and toys you will love it as mutch as we do :-)

actually i was thinking about buying some inexpensive version for two reasons
1. print stuff that i find as missing in quads/airsoft/life/whatever
2. engage my older son (6 yo) to start modeling in 3d to get his imagination into real objects

the issue is... there is a ton of crap on the market and selecting printer is quite of a challange

That seem to be good enough reasons to start :-)

When i started to get into 3D printing some years ago there were 3 low budget options so that was easier. I saw a 2th hand Prusa I3 passing by and bought it back then . (i still have it)

Keep looking and reading and you will find your ideal low budget printer :-) and you will love it .

Greatz
