Hey guys, it has been a while since the release of Ultimaker 3 what do you think can we expect a new 3d Printer in the upcoming weeks or months maybe an Ultimaker 4 ?

Perhaps it should use quality components instead of poor cinese's ones and be assembled by technician instead that by monkeys?

That's would be a GREAT improvements !!

You are entitled to your opinion but please keep our house rules in mind when interacting on our forum. Looking at the tone of this and your previous posts I feel this needs to be said. Thank you for understanding.

More of a feature request than an answer: I want a printer that is bigger on the inside!

(Printing on an U2Go today:)

I heard a rumor it's really good at toasting bread and you can schedule it to be ready for breakfast in the morning.

The cores can spread whatever topping you want.

All I would like from a new printer is better quality at a faster print speed for a lower price...

dude, stop being a dick.

you're only posting flamebait and you're being a troll.

the UM uses Misumi components which are japanese and not "poor cinese"

I'm sure that every now and then there are mistakes made when assembling the printers. that happens in every company.

what is the point you are trying to make and can you base it on an actual fact?

and actual fact is that UM scores very high with their printers in their userbase according to the yearly 3D Hubs survey..

Get rid of arduino please. UM4 needs 32 bit motion planner. Keep the dual computers though -that part I hope continues into the UM4 design.

Except the new BB-Q core - that one is only for summer dishes served outside.

That's baking cookies... I'm talking

So first layers of dough, then layers of niceness and finally some icing

With all the cookie hungry people here at the office, I think we need a few of those printing 24/7 ;)

a faster and bigger volume option;

direct drive or bondtech feeder;

enclosured;

open-source since the beggining;

no micro stepping;

lasers and sensors everywhere...

I really hope,

a joint-venture between Ultimaker and Olson

for an AA ruby core.

3dsolex.com has ruby cores.

What? No microstepping?

If you take away the 16X microstepping and want the same positional accuracy you would have to add a 16X gearbox. Also I'm not sure if the steppers can run 16X faster - they would need to handle 40,000 steps per second to hit 300mm/sec.

I know this is only a wish list....but please make something that can print large :)

Could care less about dual extruders (make it an option?)

The Olsson block and ability to use many filament types with no hassle....like the UM2+.... :)

The challenge is on them to put something on the market at a good price point :)

a closed chamber thermally regulated, with closed compartments for filaments like pva....

This, plus:

- Filament that is easily accessible - accessing from the back is a joke

- Firmware that doesn't glitch 24/7

- Cura that actually works quickly and reliably

I bought an UM3 for its reputation for reliability and quality - I mistakenly thought it would be 'print and go' - I've had nothing but problems. At the moment I can't even send a Simplify 3D print via Cura to the printer (using Simplify 3D because Cura is awful). The supported underside of prints are a complete mess, stringy and not flat. I should be able to just print it out of the box perfectly and only mess with settings if I want to - not have to change things because they don't work in the first place!
