Replacement Ultimaker 2 control board

Recommended Posts


Does anyone have any experience buying a new main board from China / Aliexpress?

A new board in europe cost around €350! The price from china with customs duty comes to around €150. A lot cheaper!

Hopefully someone can share their experience!

Hi neotko,

Thanks for the info. Should have searched it myself though!

After reading your comments and those of others there were a few things I looked out for!


I think the above link shows a pretty decent replica with power switch soldered on and the plastic (what part?) the right way around! Do you notice anything else wrong with that board other than the quality of certain parts probably being inferior?

Regards and thanks again!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
