Ultimaker Original - I can't build it...

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I've bought an Ultimaker Original recently from a French reseller. I was looking forward to build it today. Unfortunately, everything went wrong:

- At the very first step, I needed 8 screws of 12mm, I got only 6...

- In other sections of the user manual, parts were totally missing.

- Regarding the frame itself, the bottom panel is completely wrong in terms of dimensions.

Therefore, I can't even build it... Is there someone who already faced such problems ? I was expecting a better result for such a printer...

Can you post the Right panel, the one with the outputs for the board... I think you have a umo+ frame.

If that's so, you should stop assembling it immediately and wait they exchange that part, since the board won't fit, nither the board fans, etc etc. Unless you are ready to cut/drill wood (been there done that and can be done but it's so time consuming to make it right).

    • "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.
