I will echo and amplify Darcy’s comments, why buy when you can have prints done locally.

There are a variety of 3D printers and local print services available to the public in Ottawa region: some are listed on www.3dhubs.com, there is equipment at Algonquin college, there is equipment at the University of Ottawa, and Envirolaser now has five 3D printers encompassing various technologies.

I sell 3D printers (ROBO, MakerBot, Full Spectrum, 3D Systems, Flashforge and MarkForged), and even I can admit that with the availability of equipment in the region, someone who is “not a 3D guy yet” might be better off – at least initially – using a local 3D print service before taking the plunge into getting equipment.

Assuming the printer is okay for the price there's also the question of what he'll be using it for... and if that machine is a good solution for that.  

I'd be surprised if getting that machine is better than mail ordering prints, why buy the cow if you can have the milk?

  Anyone have anything good or bad to say about Formlabs 2 3D printer? 

  I have a friend who wants to buy one and he is not a 3D guy yet, so I wanted to make sure there is nothing negative about them..... anyone have any idea on cost of supplies for it?

  I am going to google for some answers also, just want the skinny from you guys :-)
