Ultimaker Original+, or an Original...?

Posted · Ultimaker Original+, or an Original...?

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.

      • 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
