[Noisebridge-discuss] opinions on 3d printers these days

Not sure how it stacks up against others on the market now, but I've been
using a super-portable Deezmaker Bukito (http://bukito3d.com/features/) and
frickin' love it. The crazy little beast came with us on a hackathon tour
across the US, suffering through inelegant car packings and even being
checked as luggage in a non-hard case – twice! – and the most I ever had to
do was adjust the build plate height. That's easily accomplished with a
Philips-head screwdriver.

Recently, after about a year of use, the extruder head has gotten jammed;
once I fix it, we'll be jamming again.

It's awesome if you need only a smallish build volume (5"x6"x5") and no
heated plate. Prints via USB or from a microSD card. Can print upside-down
:) Light, smart, and resilient. Works easily with Cura / gcode. Plus, you
can go visit them in LA!
