Assuming you're New York based, did you opt for the rep2's additional service plan? Do you get the impression you can just take your machine in locally (either Manhattan or BK) if you're having trouble? Do you get the impression they'd be OK with bringing in a Replicator 1 in the same fashion?
If you couldn't tell, I'm sort of dying to get the go ahead to "upgrade". Looking forward to your impressions.
My take is that Makerbot
has figured out that the prosumer market wants exactly what you are asking for. Reliability and precision. Â That means solid mechanics and no wood. Â The hackers are mad but there are plenty of RepRaps around for them to play with.
I agree about the resins. Â Not sure I want to play with goop, and you will be tied to proprietary formulations. Â My guess is we will see lots of innovation in thermo-filament because the growing base of printers are creating demand.
Stereo lithography has been around for a long time and probably has a place in the market for certain parts. although if resolutions for FDD keep getting better, and speeds keep up. Â It is likely the way better model.
Will be interesting to see how FormLabs does - starting with if they deliver on time.
Ready to give Rep2 a workout. Â I have a 3D Touch and if Rep2 performs as advertised that machine is an instant boat anchor.
