Will ultimaker ever release a more modern UM2+ printer?

I for example love the Zortrax m200+ but it is lacking in some parts for me.

 

Was wondering if UM will ever release a single extruder printer with the same size as UM2+ ever again?

Wanted features:

  • Atleast a default front enclosing
  • USB/Wifi
  • etc...

    I just dont want to buy a UM2+ when its "old" when theres a new type(same but more modern) of printer coming in the next years 😞 

    I tried a UM2+ and love it, but its at the boundaries of my budget.

    The UM3 is the same type but newer than the UM2+. I don’t think Ultimaker will release a new single extrusion printer any time soon.

    I think a new single core Ultimaker printer, with a core but a much lighter head than the UM3/S5 would definitely make sense.  But as @ahoeben mentioned the only people who know won't disclose anything until it's there.  My gut feeling is it will not happen but that's pure speculation.

     

    In the meantime, if the UM2+ is on the boundaries of your budget why not get a 2th hand? the machine is super reliable and if you reserve a little budget for spare parts it will serve you for years.

    @ultiarjan has a good point with 2nd hand machines. If you want to buy it from a more official point, look out for refurbished printers. In Europe, some distributors offer this and FBRC8 in the US does it as well.

    Why would you not buy an Ultimaker 2+ even when in a year or two a successor would come out? If the printer offers what you need, then it's a good deal. If it doesn't you should also not buy it later. Does that make sense for you?

    ugh I bought the um2+ new 2 times in a row now and both times I got a second-hand device...

    Scratch marks all over the place and plastic removed from the accessories.

    The scratches are definitively not nice but I also have seen them on some new machines. What do you mean with the plastic removed? The plastic from the filament? Other than that spool nothing has a plastic wrapped around afaik if you don't count the zip bag with the tools, grease, glue stick etc.

    Plastic from the "new" glass bed.

    New machines with such big scratches? how do they even come through quality control.

     

    I dont want such things on a newly bought machine with such an price.

    A few months ago there were new machines without a plastic around the glass plate. Please contact your reseller about the scratches.

      • 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
