    I printed with Ultimaker, Leapfrog and the Builder 3D printer. I got my best experiences (printer wise) with the Builder 3d Printer from Code P West.
    I think you guys should test the 3D Builder!

    1. Alwin says:

      Why was for you the 3D Builder the better printer. Because I want to buy a 3d printer but I doubt between the Ultimaker and the 3D Builder. I have no experience at the moment in 3D Printing
