Amazed at the quality of the Pro2!!

Postby KS_Husker » Wed Sep 19, 2018 2:45 am

I've been 3d printing for a long time and this machine is amazing. We paid a lot more than this for terrible machines.

I unboxed this machine tonight and loaded the latest software on it, readjusted the bed height, downloaded the dual extrusion test print and hit print using the stock settings at normal quality.

I was amazed with the silence of this machine. Never been around one this quiet before. And the very first print, straight out of the box is amazing!

See for yourselves...
I feel like the guy in the background on the last picture!

KS_Husker I was wondering if you received your Pro 2 yet. Do you have any support filament to try out. Please keep posting anything you find good or bad so we can make our decision soon thanks Don

No, I do not have any support filament to test yet. I will order some soon. I will keep updating with my findings, but so far I'm VERY impressed with this machine. Hopefully it stays that way. (Fingers crossed)

Try something more complicated... shells with support structures... and we talk about it ;)

I'm working up to it. Lol. Tonight I'll try one. This one I did this morning turned out amazing too! 5 hour print. I'm very impressed so far.

Ok, as suggested, I went to thingaverse and downloaded a cool looking Gears of War helmet to print which will test a long duration print, high detail, lots of support and a difficult object to print. It is a 19 hour print. I started it last night and checked this morning and it was looking GREAT. The only issues were a couple small places where it looks like support was needed but wasn't provided by the software.
I'll add more pictures when I get home tonight. I'm still loving this machine!
These pictures were from this morning.

That is great!! i have had the same success with all three of my printers (N2, N2+, and Pro2). I would recommend this printer to anyone looking. I just had a couple rolls of PVA come in and will be trying it next week. I will try and remember to snap some pics. Happy continued 3D printing, KS_Husker!!

I've been printing pretty much non stop since getting our Pro2 and have not had a single print failure or issue. I think these machines do have the potential to be the awesome machines they were advertised to be.
I just switched to Matterhacker maker PLA with no settings changes and printed a long print of a Cable Chain for my cnc machine. It came out great. I also did a long larger print for the router mount that came out beautifully. I love this machine, I hope the others that are having issues get them resolved quickly so they can enjoy their machine as much as I am. Best of luck to you guys.
