Review Snapmaker = The 3 in one creative musketeer!
First it is worth it and you see it directly on their great support and care for the products!
From packaging to the final high quality products delivery and finnishes quick and perfect!
I love the device and the support service is great! And there is where Snapmaker is the very best!
However if you have trouble to decide now, I would recommend to go for the Snapmaker 2, it is proven a version 2 on some points of the original.
Get inspired and bennefit of this genious device that has expertise on 3 levels of devices!
Some would maybe suggest buy separate devices because one for all can not work.
But here it is The muskateer under the 3D printers, laser and CNC
Here are my toughts about Snapmaker Original
I was interested in the CNC module because of the price and to have a creative office tool which what you can all kind of things with.
Nice with a 3D printer and cool with a lazer engraver! So I ordered extra CNC bits and the 1,6Mw lazer module.
But could all of this work together. properly on one device?How difficult is the software? And what happens if something breaks?
It is a modular system, which means if something breaks you can replace it!
As soon as the beautifull package arrived I assembled the machine together, easy and clear instructions / videos I felt like a pro!
Installed the software which is pretty straight forward and easy to use, with help of documents and videos,. no problemo!
I started with the printing module and this was really FUN! easy and in one time I printed my first model! I was afraid it was to loud.
But its like a big printer, yes it makes funny robot songs, but personally I did not mind the sound. The quallity of the print was great so a Succes!
The laser engraver, super easy and Fun! lot of experimenting with different settings. only thing here is that I strugled a bit to cut out 4mm plywood a little easier.
Here I contact the supportteam and a few hours later I got in contact with TRACY, she is my first contact here and always helps me out! she gives me tips and links so I could put the settings right and see the result in the image below! I give Tracy 5 out of 5 bananas!!!*****
The CNC module I tested last. But I have to say for a CNC machine it does not make a lot of sound.
I had some trouble with the bit on the Snapmaker Original is only tightened with a tiny 3mm screw. With the Snapmaker 2 this has been improved! also the camera is nice to have there..
After some tests I faced my rotor broke down. It could be my settings or the Original is just a bit to weak here,. After having contact with the Supportteam Tracy they didnt do any difficult on sending me a replace module to help me out. The support is great and that is just what you need with this multiple usage device!
Snapmaker stands behind their product and really take care of their users!
Everyday I see my Snapmaker Original I pet him and he makes me proud! Still hoping to get myself the 2.0 version any time soon, but the love for this device is big!
I trully wish and recommend it to every creative soul on this planet!
Go get yourself a Snapmaker and join the family!!! ❤️❤️
