Just a Parody. Truth is, it can be taken either way. I kind of like Darth Vader, even if he is bad. The guy looks great in black, and comes into the room with presence. If you like the Replicator 2 you hopefully will like this. If you hate the closed source of the Replicator 2, you will hopefully like this. Either perspective, it's Win-Win. Enjoy


Just a Parody, don't get your knickers all bunched up.

Personally, Who cares if it's closed source. So is the iPhone and it took people all of 6 hours to crack that wide open. All Prusa has to do is patent his design in such a way that MB can't use it and have to develop their own design. I guarantee that if he does that. MB would come to the table and talk this out.

I do. I care if it's closed source.

I agree. It won't take long for one of us to reverse engineer the whole thing and publish it were it belongs: on thingiverse.
From the available pictures, the only major change is the simple iron angle frame... A good opportunity for many of us to acquire welding skills.
Add to that a blower to the print head assembly and some scaling changes. The electronics are very probably the same for production cost and service reasons. The firmware might have changed a little, but probably not enough to care, unless they made the new software incompatible with the old firmware... in which case just use the old one.
The announced 100µm layer thickness doesn't seems to be achievable with the stock 0.4 mm nozzle... It still looks to me a bit like an experimental feature for the braves. (Remember, Remember, the Dual Struder)
The "For PLA" feature seems to be a great way to get rid of the over sized heated build platform.

Probably a nice machine, but I would have expected the price tag to go down, not up. Ah marketing, why can't I get a hold on you!

Haters gonna hate... This one gave me a chuckle...

Ironic that the Rep2 is shiny and black. And it lost ABS and an extruder OH MY GOD IT'S TRUE!

it used to be nice here with no people complaining. Now it is just a bunch of old fags yelling 'get off my lawn'.
btw, that is my manicured grass collection you are standing on, please get off. :)

Thingiverse should just delete all these useless posts

I hope they don't. I don't like them, I don't want them here, but I respect their right to be here so I hope they get to stay.

Posting crap violates the intent of the site.
I certainly don't mind if Prusa or whoever had a discussion on a few post, but to spam Thingiverse with crap is Whinerism (not as bad as terror but still annoying). I do not even disagree with their POV, just the manner it's expressed.

I appreciate that you are using humor to diffuse a negative situation,

I miss the days when people actually posted things they made here instead of using it to post photos.

I've posted far more than most. Check out the Mini Golf Course at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:24670http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... or the other stuff I've made.

You do have made some nice stuff. But now I will remember you as "the guy who made the silly darth replicator photoshop".
I also hate stupid uploads like this, I come here to see new and interesting things to make. If I want stupidity I'll go and read youtube comments.

I agree!
