I bought a Printrbot Simple back in July and was one of the first 80 people to get the final v2. It was a lot of fun to build the 3D printer from scratch. Just like LEGO back in the days.

The software setup was a bit problematic at first. The first prints were a mess due to wrong settings. But since Printrbot updated their “Getting Started Guide” it prints like a charm.

Usage and calibration is a bit more difficult compared to our Makerbot at Campus Münchberg. But in the end the principle of most extruders is the same.
