Well I finally took the plunge and bought an Ultimaker 2. It is a very smart looking printer. So far I have only created three small prints, so there is still a lot of learning and tinkering to do to get the best out of the machine. So far I am impressed. He looks better in the flesh, you don’t notice the print lines so much.
Just a long wait now for a Star Trek capable version.
