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

    • "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.
