I’ve heard great things about the ATOM 2.0


#3

That looks sharp… I was about to pull the trigger on a Form2 but we just order one at the office and I want to use it at work and see if it’s worth the $3500. This for $1600 looks very high quality.

Thanks for confusing me…

Is the Glowforge an option here? Glowforge on Smacktalk


#5

Glowforge would be more for cuttin.

Trying to keep a list of Delta Printers at link below. It’s short right now :frowning:

It’s a wiki though, so add’em if you got’em.

I just backed Olo for $129. If it works as well as they make it look, it’s the best sub-$400 option I’ve seen. Looking forward to trying it out!


#8

Legitimate question, are you really planning to being phone-less for 3-4 hours every job?


#9

What will happen to the price of resin? US $ 100 a bottle? :grinning:


#10

I don’t use it for at least 8 hours per night, so I don’t expect it to be a problem.

I’ll be quite surprised if this whole thing comes to fruition, and even more surprised if it’s not more trouble than it’s worth in the long term. But at $129, what the hell. It’s worth supporting the effort if only to see how others run with the idea.


#11

Olo updated their FAQ with answers to a lot of the more technical questions folks have posed. For one thing, the resins do come in black bottles. They are shown in clear bottles for marketing images only. :slight_smile:


#12

Hey, I finally got $$$. I need to decide what to buy ($ 2,500- $ 4,000 US)

any feedback?

Thanks!.

Just got the Form2 in the Office Friday, will be sharing my thoughts soon


#14

Oooo!!! Excitement! Do share. Look forward to it!


#15

But I’m holding on (my own money) to see how this develops:


#16

Yeah, I was SO close to dropping the coin on that, but with the ship date out in 2016/2017, I decided to wait. (Still waiting on my Peachy Printer - a model KS campaign for how not to do things.)


#17

I just bought this

would need more ???


#18

Hey guys! I have been working for a month with the ultimaker 2+ and I earned US$326 in 72 working hours! (chiripas :D)

It was difficult to work with ABS at first, But I’m moving on.

A course from Coursera begun this week and I think you could be interested, they use Ultimakers with 3D fusion 360.


#19

Just realized their office is like 5 minutes from mine! Seriously thinking on storming the place right now.

Ultimaker? Go… and tell us what they’re up to! :slight_smile:
