MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I have printed it, but I don't like it so much.
-It takes 2,5 hours to print, atleast.
-Why is it so "Low Poly"?
-The wheels don't turn, not because the spools aren't perfectly round, but "plastic on plastic" just doesn't have any grip. The spools are stationairy and the filament spool just slides on the spools.
-The spools have a too steep angle to print on, so some of my printed filament fell inside of the spool I was printing, but that could be the fault of my printer aswell.
-It's stable when the spool is on the holder, but I can blow it over to the side where it doesn't have any ground support. I see that the maker has added holes so you can nail it to a board or something, but that isn't what I prefer.
-The pins are too long for my liking, it could be 2-3mm less.
I have to thank the maker still, because it made me so frustrated, yet inspired, that I have spent my afternoon drawing in CAD a spool holder for myself. Instead, I made a spool stand that takes 80% less of printing time, filament and parts, and I don't see how this could win the competition.
