    German RTL2 TV Last night... Ultimaker saves the day... :-)

    German RTL2 TV Last night... Ultimaker saves the day... :-)

     

    My friend is west germany sent me a quick whatsapp message yestern evening, telling me that rtl2 would be showing a program on 3d printing in the home.

    So I sat down with my griflriend... pop corn in hand :-)

    This is what happened...

     

    Fabbster from Germany sent the film production crew in Berlin a free fabbster printer as kit.

    The repoter explainned that he had no big interesting in kits but would put it together.

    He was absoluty schocked that he had to put together more than 550 seperate parts ...

    After a lot of sweat and confusion he assembled the Fabster printer...

    Like a little happy kid, he turned it on and plugged it into the computer, clicked print...... and.... NOTHING... dead as a dodo...... (Fabster ! this is not good advertiseing but brilliantly funny for every other company ;-)

    So the guy tried to work out what was the problem... no idea.. every thing hidden behind plastic... so he phoned customer care and, the guy told him, he could not help... he would have to get a customer care person to drive from Nurenburg in southern germany to Berlin.... holy shit..... :-(

    After the customer care guy got there one day later.... the man fixed the print head and did not explain anything.... went back to Nurenburg...

    Then the user restarted and printed for about 20 minutes until the printer turned his model into.......dog shit would be basically what happened.....

    So the guy explained..."im really not sure about this 3d printer thing"" and said ok i need help...... WELCOME ultimaker :-)

    The crew went down to the FABLAB in Munich and the camera just panned around a room full with shiny working ultimakers... nice zooms on the ultimaker logo... :-)

    The guy just took the model on sd card, inserted in an ultimaker and bang.... 30 minutes later, took it off the print table and handed to the reporter.... ULTIMAKER !!! QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY....

     

    So that was it... FABSTER thank you for trying to buy yourself into the good light..... TOTAL FUCKING DISASTER and your product looked and performed like... wet toilet paper hanging from the legs of a elephant...

    and thank you for making Ultimaker look like a bloody Ferrari racing car...... NICE :-)

     

    Great Media for Ultimaker.

    Congradulations guys !!! you kicked serous ass last night !

    A new player in the affordable home 3d print market here in germany.

    but this time, with built in 3d scanner function... place your object on the table, scan it, take it off and print a copy... kinda cool idea..

    but lets see how it plays out in the real world ?
