Ultimaker Original+, or an Original...?

Recommended Posts

I recently received what I believed to be an Ultimaker Original+ from an authorised distributor.

 

I followed the assembly guide and started to notice parts that were missing, including the heated plate. I also now notice that I have wooden parts such as the brackets to support the acrylic plate on the Original that would not be needed on the Original + and I am missing various parts including motor spacers, the laser pack, sintered bushings. 

 

Despite arriving in an Ultimaker Original+ box I believe I have received an Ultimaker Original which is now partly assembled. Has anyone else experienced a problem like this? My only other thought is that what separates an Original from an Original + is an extra box of parts and that this was not delivered. Can anyone clarify this - does the Original+ come in a single box?

 

How are Ultimaker at addressing these kinds of issues? 

 

Thanks, Oli

I would complain about the printer to the dealer and ask for clarification. Since you have recently bought the printer, it is the dealer's turn to solve the problem.

    • "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.
