great value printer

I have three of these nice printers and I am very happy with them. You get great results and now you even can continue a print after turning off (still a minor bug there). Good price/quality balance. I would like to have a bigger and more active community for it to exchange tipps and tricks and firmware improvements.

Great value and print quality

I got an early CraftBot in 2014 so some teething problems were to expect. All issues were solved by CraftUnique by sending me the parts, since the machine is quite well constructed I was able to make the necessary repairs myself. However, the Craftbot sold today seems far more robust I think, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a solid 3D printer. Preferably the XL with linear rails if budget allows.

I am printing all kinds of stuff in PLA and PTE from different cheap brands, and as long as it sticks to the build plate it just prints without problems. I print on a glass plate held with a few gino pads which is a common low cost upgrade. It is flatter than the provided alu plate which warped a bit for me over time

CraftUnique also develop the slicing software CraftWare, which is pretty solid IMO. It gives a nice 3D rendering of what the objects layers will look like, and it has tons of parameters. Anyhow, you can of course use other slicers with the CraftBot. Finally I'd like to mention the CraftUnique forum where a very friendly community does its best to help anyone running into problems. The devs are also present there hinting about new CraftWare features and stuff like that which is awesome.

My favorite of the 7 printers I've had

I love my Craftbot! I currently have 3 different printers and I've had 4 others at various times. The Craftbot is my favorite. by far.  I am a middle school teacher who prints a great deal, both student projects and items downloaded from online. The Craftbot is the easiest for the students to help with  loading and unloading filament and removing prints from the build plate. It is also the quietest, which is a big deal in a classroom with multiple printers running at once. The Craftware software is also easy to use, and the prints are almost twice as fast as Printrbot Simple Metal (sliced with Cura), with better quality.  When printing hundreds of student projects, speed matters. I would be very happy to get another one.

My printer for specialty filaments and my own made filaments

Temperatures are possible up to 280 degrees with a Hotend update

This is interesting for nylon carbon and similar filaments and of course for filaments I myself have made . The Craftbot is very easy to use and you can fix quickly blockages or filament breakage.

CraftUnique Craftbot 2

It is my first 3D printer and it is beyond my expectations.  As a starting 3D printer it is very easy to use and understand the software as well as the hardware.  Simple design makes it less scary for a beginners. It can keep printing from where it left if there was a power cut.  I would recommend it to everyone as a powerful, fun and easy to use machine.

My craftbot is my go to printer. Great surface finish and the easy to remove print bed is one of my favorite features.

My craftbot has been a pleasure to work with. As a complete n00b to 3d printing, it has been relatively forgiving.
