Ultimaker's screwed AI?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker's screwed AI?

Appalling UM customer service today. It decided to help me, as per the message, by unsubscribing me today alleging that I had not opened any UM emails "in a while". What a jerk; I read every email from UM, just why does it think it knows what I read and what I do not. So instead of hitting a "confirm" button or similar I had to go through the rigmarole of re-registering. Really peed me off. Having spent some considerable time working in Amsterdam I do not recall the Dutch people I worked with being so  - put your own word in -  and we go a lot further back with my father being part of the allied forces that drove the Germans from Holland and making a number of Dutch friends on the way and lots of Xmas cards; and I had a very nice Dutch girlfriend some time ago admittedly. Looks like the Dutch are not as caring as they used to be ?

    Hi Yellowshark,


    Thank you for your message. 

    Sorry to hear you had to re-register and read past emails. This last email was part of a 'series' of emails to, basically what it said, not clutter inboxes of people who aren't opening them anyway. For two reasons, one; the recipient doesn't care because he isn't reading the emails and 2; we have to pay for sending out all those emails. So sounds like a win-win situation if we can keep that list of recipients relevant right?


    Regarding the re-registering, like I said it should be part of a series of 3 emails. The first email should have notified you that we notice you haven't opened any emails in a while (I would need to check what the timeframe was, I believe a few months or so). The second email contained the 'Wait, I'm still in!' button, so you wouldn't need to re-register. In this last email, since previous ones didn't trigger any activity, we went ahead and unsubscribed. Our apologies if the other emails were not clear enough. Did you receive them even?


    Another important thing, this email you received concerns the Ultimaker promotional emails. It does not contain community newsletters. 


    So, are we talking about the same emails, did you receive and read our promotional emails? Our apologies if the email did not match your online behavior. We'll see if we can optimize the process further. Hopefully, you don't hold a grudge against all of us Dutchies because of this ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
