New Ultimaker in Barneveld

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
