IMO, combo machines are never a good idea. You always have to sacrifice something for multifunctions.

I guess Rubber specific might be good.

Kinda iffy on Kickstarters now.
Still waiting for the last one I participated in. Been 2 years now they MAY be shipping this or next month.

Here’s another Kickstarter I’ve had my eye on:

PolySmoother: Polish Your Prints The Way They Should
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2098899385/polysmoother-polish-your-prints-the-way-it-should
It claims it can smooth layer lines out of PLA even!
This one has 22 days to go. CA$ 602,637 pledged of CA$ 6,399 goal.

I tend to use Kickstarter’s as a news source versus something I would actually consider buying from. I hear many horror stories of companies not able to deliver what they promise. Usually the first releases of these machines come with a whack load of issues and you end up becoming a beta tester, who gets no sleep, since you are communicating overseas for support late in the evening.’

Not my cup of tea but it is cool to see what’s on the horizon for 3D printing in general.
