Posted · New Ultimaker in Barneveld

Another new UltiMaker born in the Netherlands!

Got it on Tuesday, built on Wednesday and Thursday, First print this evening. All went well, and for a first print at all default settings I am very pleased! I did the robot of course - it probably should be pre-installed on the SD card!

A few points about the build - As many others have pointed out, the build instructions start out well but start to fail towards the end. There are a number of errors that are just unfortunate (putting the end caps on then having to remove them to put the axis rods in) but the later stages get very cryptic on occasion (using completely different names for the Z screw in consecutive steps).

The big gap seems to be the step after you are finished - apart from how to level the bed there is nothing on how to actually use the machine. I could not even find any info on how to feed PLA into the extruder drive! I know there is lots of comments on everything in the forum but there really needs to a 'users handbook' - especially for the pre-assembled machines.

Anyway, I hope that the coming months will be as sucessful as the first build seems to portend!
