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...

Regards,

Pascal.

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).

    • 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.
