I got this recently as part of my ongoing effort to beef up my EDC. After fumbling with it for quite a while figuring out how it works, I finally got it working at last. Really enjoying this flashlight hanging from my keychain. The current flashlight I am using is like ten times bigger than this! I will most likely be leaving that previous flashlight I was using at home and start to use this one instead.
In addition to the Ultimaker and Formlab’s Form 2, I am also looking into the MakerBot Replicator Z18. The price tag is definitely hefty but considering the things that it could do and deliver, I would say that it is well justified. It is supersized, meaning that large 3D prints can be made.
Seriously considering it as one of the choices to decide on!
Lately I have been researching and reading up on 3D printing and 3D printing machines. I am slowly discovering the joy of 3D printing and actually tested out a 3D printout with a provider nearby (will probably blog about that later). In the meantime here is an interesting video on where to obtain your 3D printing machine, should you buy those cheap 3D printing machines that come from China?
For me, personally, although these 3D printing machines from China would be cost effective, I do not think I will get them. I am opting to go for a branded printing machine that may be a bit expensive, but does not compromise on quality and easy to use for a neophyte like me. Specifically, I am looking into the Ultimaker 2+ and FormLab’s Form 2. These machines cost between RM14K – RM18K but I do not mind spending that much if I know that I can find a use for it. At the moment, I am still exploring the pros and cons of 3D printing, so buying a 3D printing machine is still a faraway dream.
