Finally, after an extremely long wait for the shipment and for the duty complications, we received the solidoodle
First impressions: we chose the expert version: the base model just has the acrilc bed for 499$, the pro model adds the heated bed, interior lights and upgraded power supply for 599$ and the expert model has an outer cover and acrilic door for 699$.
While investing in the pro model could be a good choice (anyhow buying the spare parts to add a heated platform will cost quite a bit) choosing the expert model is useless, and those 100$ could be spent much better in filament or other things. The difference is just an acrilic door with 2 hinges and a small magnet (that detaches all the time) and a piece of sheet metal that you have to unscrew if you want to easily change the filament…
We will post a full review asap, up till now I can say that it’s a nice printer, the price is fair but it certainly does not print “out of the box“
