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 !

    • "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.
