Dunno if its posted anywhere yet, but looks like ultimaker is leading the pack by a small margin!

Congrats!

Your sales seem disproportionately low in North America though....

Might I suggest the reason being shipping is also disproportionately high in the Americas to obtain your products too. :p *hint hint.

    Well rumors (more than rumors really) indicate that UM will have a US distributor very soon. So I think they already got the hint.

    Makershed seems to be selling the UM1 already:

    makershed.com

    Not sure it this is the new secret distributor or if it will be someone else. But my impression is that UM ships a pallet worth of UMs to makershed and then makershed ships within the US. This should hopefully save you money and time on the shipping.

    I read elsewhere online that Makershed may have the UM2 in a few weeks.

     

    Do tell! Spread the rumor! Give us a link! Or was it just in these forums? Or in google groups?

    Hi there!

    I was on the Thor 2 stand at the London print show, opposite the Ultimaker stand - Ultimaker was by far the busiest of all of the displays selling small printers!

    I was so impressed - I bought the Ultimaker2...
