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.
