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.  That means solid mechanics and no wood.  The hackers are mad but there are plenty of RepRaps around for them to play with.

I agree about the resins.  Not sure I want to play with goop, and you will be tied to proprietary formulations.  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.  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.  I have a 3D Touch and if Rep2 performs as advertised that machine is an instant boat anchor.

Sweet - now stop teasing and start shipping!!
Schuley! Don't you have a Replicator 1? I've been seeing you around on Kickstarter lately, don't you have a Form 1 coming your way as well? Or was that the FSL laser cutter I'm thinking of?
Have had a Rep1 since it first shipped and a Rep2 on the way. I got a chance to see the Rep2 during a recent visit to the BotCave and it is spectacular (if your primary interest is making things.  If you are mostly interested in working on 3D printing technology like fiddling with firmware and slicer settings, then perhaps staying with the pure RepRap route is probably preferable.  I think Rep2 is going to set a new bar for price/performance.  We will see real soon.

Yes I have been backing some of the new toys on KickStarter.  Hoping they all actually show up Beefy - what do you think?
I'm fed up with telling clients my Replicator is down, and spending weekend after weekend replacing parts and troubleshooting on my own. I'm ready to drop this and move to a Replicator 2, but not until I hear people are printing away with flying colors. If I ran into the same problems with Rep 2 as I do Rep 1, I'd flip, so I'm waiting for the hype to die down and reviews from actual uses to come in.

Very cool. How long does it take to print?
