Editors Didn't Like

  • The printer performs inconsistently when printing large objects, can't print directly from a computer, and requires manual calibration. It's also very expensive
  • Bottom Line, The Ultimaker 2 offers consistently good print quality, a large build area, and near-flawless operation making it our top 3D printer pick for makers and designers
