It is an amazing technology for schools and companies that can employ staff to maintain them - other than that, they still are not ready for consumers... yet
That will change in a few years I have no doubt! However, a new approach is necessary that changes the way the technology currently works the current method is not reliable. They mostly use the same bruteforce approach of a gear to push filament through a heated nozzle.
In the future, I assume we will see a cartridge that contains a liquid or a method of melting the filament before the nozzle as a "material reservoir"
What ever it is, it has to change
My town library is getting a 3d printer this spring, and getting a new makerapace which will certainly have one or more.
The flashforge creator pro has a bigger print volume (actually it is pretty much a makerbot replica) and with proper software, prints come out amazing... I use Simplfy3D... User control over the Creator pro allows for serious fine tuning... Both of these printers print in PLA and ABS.... I am happy with both of these printers.... I might have to revisit this thread down the road when I see long term how these printers get on....
