Ask Buying Tips for Printrbot Jr. (V2).

Postby Hakjoo » 2013-Oct-Mon-23-Oct

I'm very interested with Your Printrbot Jr. (V2).

I'm beginner to 3D Prining.

I have some questions before buying your printer.

1. Filament compatibility
Any other 1.75mm PLA or ABS filament can be used your Printrbot Jr. (V2).
without changing Spool?
I want to buy PLA or ABS filament in Korea because of cost.
Any other problems for printing with other PLA or ABS product?

2. Service Parts
Because I'm in Korea, I have trouble to buy your Parts & Accessories.
I hope you recommend your Parts & Accessories for Printrbot Jr. (V2)
such as 1.75mm Hot End, Tips(0.4mm). Any other else?

3. CAD/3D modeling software recommendation for your Printer

4. Shipping Charge and Good Option(for UPS)
In case Printrbot Jr. (V2)( ? kg) + 4 PLA filanent(4 kg) + Other Parts(about 1 kg)
How much shipping charge from Your site to Korea(SEOUL) ?

Thank you very much if you may say advice by addition to purchase your printer.

1) Sure, you can use any 1.75 filament and it should work just fine. Of course, as long as it's not defective or something.

2) I would just start with the default items that come with both the kit or the assembled version. You can always order additional stuff down the road if you want, but you don't need anything else just to get started.

3) You can use any program that can output to a .STL file. There are many to choose from, but Google's free SketchUp is a great place to start... http://www.sketchup.com/

4) You can add items to your cart and then select the shipping method before you have to actually pay.
