Ultimaker 2 User Manual

Recommended Posts

Start with Cura:

http://software.ultimaker.com/

Download something you would want to print from thingiverse.com or youmagine.com or design your own thing with CAD. Then open it in cura.

Look at every setting in cura and hover over it to get a deeper understanding.

Look at your model in XRAY view. Anything in red is an illegal CAD design (internal walls) unless you want an internal cavity.

Look at the overhang mode. Then look at slice mode and look at what it actually will be printing - you can often see issues here also.

It's not put online yet, but most likely it will be. (It was a bit of a stress job to get it finished, reviewed, and printed before shipping the first printers)

The manual contains all details from unpacking your printer, to setting it up, to installing the software and doing your first print. Cura is only a part of that (an important part, but only a part)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
