1. Use 3d printer at home or Work?
I've been using an UP2Plus for almost 4 years at work for R&D.
2. Use 3d printer to make toys for children or use it by yourself(and to do what)?
I use it to make prototype models to help develop and prove new designs before investing in plastic injection mould tools. I've also used it to make one-off and small volume production working parts, such as mounting brackets, spacers etc. I've even used it to make gears to drive the lead screw on a lathe as I needed a specific feed ratio for coil winding... that saved the life of a job!
3. What 3D modeling software are you using? Meet your expectation?
My 3D CAD is 'Solid Works' its an industrial level dimension driven solids modeller, its easy to use and makes engineers like me look clever
So that part more than meets with what I need. As for 3D printer software I've only used the UP GUI. It's OK in as much it does for the job most of the time. But it is badly designed, illogical in some respects and virtually hides, so I forget about them, important print parameters. It would be nice to be able to save print parameters with a friendly name, save your print recipe. Other little things like automatically pre-heat the platform,isn't it obvious that if I've turned on the printer there's a really good chance I might want to print something
I could go on, in another thread maybe
