Bravo !


Recommended Posts


I just finish assembling my Ultimaker 3D printer. I wanted to send a huge thanks to the everyone in the community. Here is why :

When I was a kid, I spend a lot of time playing with a famous brick game (I don't need to spell the name of it as everyone in the community surely played it toooooo much already). At that time, spending hours assembling new models was such great moments. I'm 35 now and I never had this same feeling again.

But yesterday, since I unbox the Ultimaker printer, I spent a so great time following the assembling instructions. It felt like I was 7 years old again !

During the assembling steps, I often felt like, even if the printer never work, I'm satisfied already.

So thank you again, only for giving us the possibility to feel like kids playing with the toy you all participated to bring alive.

BTY, I also was so surprised by the way everything went right during the assembly. I followed a lot of other assembly instructions in my life and there is always something wrong, something that makes me think : "it should be like this or like that instead...". With those assembly instructions, I always thought : "WTF ! those guys are genius !". Now I understand what Chris Anderson meant about open source projects in "MAKER".

Well, let's stop spreading my happiness and let's start configuring software and start MAKING !

Bravo !

      • 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
