Hello,

I wanted to ask for some help in setting up the Ultimaker Original with Macintosh

Other then the CURA software, do I need to install anything else?

Still it does not work up. I tried updating the firmware, using the latest Cura software. But nothing.

Tried with several models, reloading, resetting. Nothing.

The print head does not heat up and its fan does not spin.

Once the printer started printing, but as the print head was cool, nothing came out.

What else should I try?

Must say the Ultimaker was left idle for a couple of month

    Hi,

    So when you power on the printer, nothing happens? Is the power plug firmly inserted into the power brick? Was this a kit you assembled or purchased assembled?

    Double check the connections going to the print head, those wires shouldn't pop out but it could happen....also, under the printer, is everything plugged into the electronics board?

    More details please!

    If it was working but was idled for some time, it should just work. BUT...use some sewing machine oil (you can get it at Sears, WalMart, etc) and lightly lubricate the rods. I left my machine idle for a few months and when I tried to do some printing, it was VERY noisy. Cleaning and oiling the rods fixed this.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
