I've had my Up! for 2 years now and my usage varies. I've left it for say 6 months without printing anything, but then FURIOUSLY printing in bursts. Overall I'll say I've used it a lot but it is during those quiet periods I wonder if I still need it. It is nice to have around though and could be a great education tool, but remember it is just a tool - you need a good teacher to go with it ;)

If you want something to print around youngsters you might consider a PLA printer, no heated bed, less fumes, lower nozzle temp etc..
Great.. I agree with you !!
