I’m new to the community and have joined to have the ability to speak 3D printers with others who use them.
I’m in the market for a secondary 3d printer. I teach several engineering classes in the high school setting and utilize 3d printers to teach many engineering concepts.
I have a BFB 3000 duel extruder type printer that I have a love hate relationship with. I just started using the new composite bed after BFB announced their acrylic bed was faulty as it warps into a concave shape.
My question is which printer should I buy? I have between 3 and 4k as a budget and have looked at and spoken to manufacturers and am thinking about the Makerbot Replicator 2X or the CubeX which won best in show at this past CES.
I know both printers are new and I doubt anyone has any as they are still taking pre orders but I’d love to hear from those who have had consistent reliability with their printers.
