Is there anyone willing to let me build their Ultimaker?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Since it will take a while before I got saved up enough of money to buy my own, I was wondering if there is anyone willing to let me build his/her UM. (free of charge, only shipping costs)

I want to do this so I can record everything on video, and just because I think that it would be fun to do!

but since I live in North Holland (Alkmaar region) you might consider building it yourself if your living in a different country (due to shipping costs ;) ).

i agree... people just handing you their new 3d printer kit..mmmm... dont think so.


why not volunteer with ultimaker in their factory and say. I want to build ultimakers for a solid week... maybe they say yes ?? I have no idea but it doesnt hurt to ask ?



i tried, they told me they had enough builders :(

I think you will have a difficult time getting someone to send their $1800 Ultimaker to someone they don't know. Not trying to stifle your efforts here but just thought I would throw that out there.


I understand, but that's why I am searching locally. so the person knows where I live and maybe build it together :)

but then again I might be just naïve and really easy trust people :p

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
