Being the most extensive and consulted 3d printing guides in the world, the 3dHubs Printerguide sorely needs an update. There are 3 major shortcomings:
1. The metrics are not uniform. Most people think their printer prints fine, and that is why a Prusa Mendel gets a 9.0 for print quality, and a Form 2 gets a 9.4. Clearly these are not measured on the same scale and these results cannor be compared.
2. The results need to be weighted for newness. What was acceptable as user friendly (installing python, reprogramming marlin) a few years ago is unthinkable now.
3. These is no one comparing printers side by side. But a lot of people have experience with more than one printer. By using their ability to compare and adding up all these comparisons a much more meaningful data set can be obtained.
I hope we get a better guide in 2018
