we’re getting quite exhausted and overwhelmed with the people calling us for machines and answering their questions, putting us in a very uncomfortable position, on a daily base; that are quite some hours per week. so we don’t know other than building a FAQ but that would also involve to correct all the misleading downplays and just plain incorrect statements / half truths by PP Eindhoven on the social net and on youtube.
I actually don’t even know where to start but I think its best to address first what is always being asked :
– Filament : no
– PET : rather not, it’s @#$@#% machine killer just
– saving the world, yeah, sure. … lol, just for fun
– shampoo bottles : hard job
– effort, energy, time involved: much higher than illustrated
– easy: no, not all
– invest: high
– running fees: high
– maintenance plan : expensive, complicated
Honestly, I don’t know what to tell them other than the truth, as always; this isn’t pp.com baby, it’s about saving others people efforts, invests in pretty harsh situations; they deserve some truth and honesty. Those people are mostly on islands and and/or have indeed serious trouble with plastic, simple and plain desperate. Apparently they look at PP as a way out and we’re in the middle and have to take the bitter pill (FOR F**** HOURS) to tell them that are rather toys or lets say hobbyist achievements.
I am aware we don’t get any support, help or even the slightest decency to address those problems, despite we are supporting the PP project with thousands of Euros in the 5 digit range since long; worst even, we get kicked out because the ‘silent’ ‘majority’ doesn’t have the balls to step forward and help just, instead they ask for our ban in the forum again. sad sad sad …
However, would be great to figure out a general guidance/FAQ we can place in front and so we can focus on the real problem of PP : better machines.
If there is any other myth buster, FAQ’able thing to add, let me know please. I am aware this isn’t a subject for the more experienced ones who can deal with flaws, nor folks who play with the material around, etc…
