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...

      • 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
