Got my new Ultimaker (v1) and it is instantly old. I feel so happy and ripped off at the same time... :-|

you should be a lot more happy than sad !

I have an ultimaker 1 at home in my office. tuned and oiled and printing every single model i put on SD card...

all you need is keeping things tight and the metal axis oiled and you have yourself an amazing maschine in your hands !!

you should say.. yipppeee I have a brilliant 3d printer !!

Best wishes und Liebe Grusse aus Leipzig.

Ian :-)

Dude I'm in your shoes (3 week old Ultimaker 1) but honestly no one should be upset about the Ulitmaker 2 coming out. The UM1 does almost everything the UM2 does and is more tweakable (and cheaper)! Though I have to admit the new extruder and hot end look lovely :).

Also remember that the UM guys have vowed to keep updating the UM1 so its far off from being a dead platform. Stop worrying about it and get printing!

Good Luck,

Danny

    • Coronavirus: Let's do our part
      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
