I'll try to be there. might make it might not.

I do want to offer a suggestion;

I think it would be great if there could be an evening focussed on maintenance lead by the community. I'd be happy to share my experiences, I have around 15.000 printing hours under my belt with several Ultimaker 2s.. I know a lot of people ahve also spend a lot of time and effort maintaining them and doing this that you won't find in the manuals..

is that an idea?

i think it would be fantastic to share experiences on the following;

1)what maintenance do you do and when?

2)what are the most common failures and how can you recognize and fix them?

3)what are your experiences around printing with the UM2 (and ofcourse the UM)

4)what would be critical spareparts

5)what to prepare for when doing special prints.

something like that would be extremely helpful to me..

I think a demo on stuff like tightening pullys/belts could be useful. .. and stuff like replacing the hot end.

And topics based on frequent issues at the help desk sounds good...


Hot end; I believe we did this not too long ago?

Frequent issues; good idea! But I think that may also be a lot of 'newbie'-mistakes which most of us have out grown, but it would definitely be good to check!

I only bring my UM2 when I've got something to show.

I'll show my dual-head setup this time.

I think it doesn't make much sense to bring a standard UM2, unless you have f.e. specific questions or need help with something for which you need your printer, or the topic of the evening is some activity for which you need a printer...

so shall we make this a bit more concrete? :)


I assume you refer to the maintaining your Ultimaker theme?

I would love to! First I will talk it over with my colleagues which whom we usually decide the topics on. We don't want it to interfere with plans that already exist.

We will reach out to you when we are all on the same page.

It may be a few days tho, so please have some patience with us :)

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
