Walking through the magazine aisle in Coles last night, I bought a copy of a magazine currently out called, ‘Techlife Australia’. They have a big section on buying 3D printers…and they also have a CD with software for printing..

We have the budget to purchase an "Up" 3D printer but with a bit of a change of priorities we could possibly move on to the next model up from Intellecta, the Replicator 2, which is about $700 more ($2640).
The Replicator 2 is larger (is that an advantage or disadvantage) and uses PLA plastic as opposed to ABS. PLA is suppose to be less prone to warping. It also melts at a lower temperature so cold morning starts should be less of a problem.
I have heard only good things about the Up. Does anyone have any experience with the Replicator model?
Do you think being larger will be a good thing or a bad thing?
