“I assume that the quality of the printed parts is the same regardless of the 3D printer”. Not at all true. That’s like saying that a hobbyist CNC mill put together for $1000 can produce the same quality parts as a $250k professional CNC mill, or that every car drives the same as any other car. It just isn’t the case. The 3D printer I’d like to have is $140k. The precision is awesome, and it can switch between 8 different materials on the fly. But there’s no way I can justify spending that $, so I just work with the best quality consumer grade 3D printer that I consider affordable. And when I need to, send parts out to be printed by someone with a more capable 3D printer.
I think that you misspelled your name, it should be spelled 'Cesar', that's how I spell mine. I get the feeling that you're not in the USA. Right?
About a week ago I visited one or our local Office Depot office supply stores, they had on display the Cube 3D printer and many samples that it had printed. I assume that the quality of the printed parts is the same regardless of the 3D printer. The machine price at Office Depot is $1300. Here is the link to the Cube 3D printer: http://cubify.com/en/Products/Cube2TechSpecs?gclid=CLiQzvXvvb8CFc9j7AodIHgAuQ. Maybe you can see one in action at your local Office Depot.
Would I buy a Cube 3D printer for $1300, NO.

Hi, I've been lurking for years ... am curious if
anybody has a 3D printer or used a 3D printer service.
It would be great to hear / share your experience with the
printer or service!
