This review is from: 3D Systems 381000 Silver Plastic Jet 200 microns Single Jet 3D Printers 5.5" x 5.5" x 5.5" Build Size
Pros: Small, looks good, and prints things in 3d, glue you put on the glass is water soluble.
Cons: Noisy: First thing is it will be moved to the basement based on how much noise it generates. It makes me worry because something that costs this much shouldn't make sounds like it's getting ready to strip out plastic gears. I know it's a stepper motors in all and they sound s little harsh, but this is beyond what I expected. Initial frame print sometimes jumps the feed, resulting in no material being printed. Goes clunk clunk clunk and you can see the material back feeding slightly some gear in there is jumping. Happily it only does this on the grid print (uses more material at a time).
Interface: Please note that the interface that is shown in the pictures is blue, mine is just a dull white. Does not connect Via USB for printing only for updates, kinda a bummer to use the flash driver to move things.
???: I printed a bezel for an LCD Screen of which stated 4 hours 11 minutes, it actually took 6 hours + and the time down clock stated 0:00 for two hours.
Setup: WiFi system does not allow for connection to networks that don't broadcast an SSID or a Hidden network. Which is why I have to use the USB Flash Drive to print things.
Software: The software is a little clunky and doesn't load every time. I have had several designs where you import more than one model to print at a time on the same plate and it crashes when you tell it to build.
Compile Error, Twice I have had an error generated in the build file where it will either leave something out or even add an object that was "unloaded" requiring me to cancel the print. In one case it shows everything in the Cube software as solid and existent, however when I print it doesn't print as show. More specifically, A letter was left out in some 3d text, example : 3d systems prints, 3d s stems. Which was a huge bummer because I didn't notice until it was 75% printed.
Other Thoughts: I'm very saddened to write this review, if this thing cost $300 I wouldn't have just because, well you get what you pay for. However for over $1k, this seems like a beta test. That's a lot of money for me to risk on this product.
Please note that this DOES NOT INCLUDE DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE!!! You will need to get Sketchup 2013 (free) and download through the Extension Warehouse the "Export STL" extension.
