Have you opened a ticket with them and tried to get help with troubleshooting? If you consider that likely a vast majority of Raise3D owners are not on this forum, saying everyone should get their money back or file class action based on such a small fraction of owners with this issue is just completely flawed. I get that you are frustrated, but your claims of widespread issues/design flaws are based purely on a very shortsighted observation with an insignificant sample size. Is there something I am missing here?
I have used a Pro 2 Plus for a year now with none of these issues. I have printed with PLA, ABS, NylonX, Taulman Alloy 910, PVA, PolyFlex TPU, etc. I have printed parts that range from 10 minutes to 4-5 days print time. I have yet to have a failure that I would say is the fault of the printer. Some materials are easier to work with than others, but this is by far my favorite printer that we have here. This includes a MakerBot Replicator+ (worst decision ever and only $2,500), this Pro 2 Plus ($6k IIRC?), a MarkForged that lays fiberglass/carbon fiber strands ($80k), and a Fortus 450MC, which was an insane $250k. I haven't found a single part thus far that was worth printing on the MarkForged or Fortus. Why don't I have these issues if the root cause is "bad design"?
