Hi Ultimaker community, 

 

I'm Adam, a copywriter on Ultimaker's content marketing team. We're currently planning future content for the "Learn" section of our website, which includes the Ultimaker blog and success stories. 

 

I'm hoping you all can help us out. If your company (or a company you know about) uses Ultimaker products in any capacity, we'd love to hear about it! If the story is there, and you're up for it, maybe we can work together to create a story that will be featured on the site.

 

Here are examples of success stories we have published in the past:

 

Killa Design (architecture firm)

 

https://ultimaker.com/learn/3d-printing-the-buildings-of-tomorrow

 

Ford

 

https://ultimaker.com/learn/ford-reinventing-efficient-manufacturing-using-3d-printing

 

The above content is somewhat large-scale, but that doesn't mean any story is too small! We're looking for anything that shows businesses or organizations using Ultimaker products to a positive end. So don't be shy! 

 

Also, any time you spot Ultimaker in the wild – on YouTube, in a newspaper, etc – please let us know. Great content can sometimes slip through the cracks, so any leads are of great use to us. 

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

Adam

My Company does use Ultimaker sure it is only slightly more then a hobby and all profits only goes towards buying me more filament to play with but I do earn money from my printer, I do claim it on my taxes and I am already planning on getting the new S5 upgrades in Oct. 

 

 

(My story so far)

I am on my 6th 3d Printer now, its an S5 I plan on updating to the Pro shortly, I got into this as a business by accident. I recently purchased a new home; it was a big fixer upper. When the local window guy came out to replace the windows, I was sitting at the table working on my I3 Mk3  he asked me “what is that” we talked for a few minutes.  He asked if I could make something for him, I said I would try, he rummaged in the back of his truck, he pulled out a mangled plastic part, he explained “ This is a window screen clip for aluminum windows, the company no longer exists, if someone needs a clip I have to sell them for 5 bucks each used” I looked at it spent 20 minutes in tinkercad and had a proto-type with great creative license because I had to basically guess what it looked like when it was new and still worked.

800 clips later it’s a business, I make proto-types and engineering samples, I do custom print orders with a few rules, 1. I will not print items downloaded from a website it must be your own item, and if I find the item object able I will not print it (I turned down an order for a very large multipart adult toy “gag gift” this year I made enough for the S5 and most of the pro upgrade cost. All in my spare time

Hey Belezeebub, 

 

Great story! From where are you based? Do you have any specific customer stories (orders, organizations with which you have worked, etc) that you are willing or able to share? 

 

Really looking forward to hearing more! Let us know.

Hi Adam,

 

The company I work at (Amstel Engineering) uses an S5 printer.

We are a design & engineering company based in Amsterdam.

We use the S5 mainly for rapid prototyping, but sometimes parts we print also end up in a final product.

Next to that more serious side of printing we also use it a lot to upgrade our office.

We made custom monitors stands, cable holders and door signs.

 

Hope this give you some insights, if you would like to know more, let me know.

 

Niels

Hey Niels, 


Great to hear from you! I've just checked out your website and would love to hear more. Are there any particular stories (clients with which you've worked, projects you've used  the Ultimaker S5 with, etc) you'd like to share?

Anything that is my design I post on Thingiverse, any item I print for a customer I sign an NDR on but I can share the ones I made. Thing 3069317, Thing 3908122 (I am making these for a local business they need 50 of them once I get the cut out correct and add room for all the screws and plus) Thing 3867477 might be useful here. I am not a designer I just dabble in tinkercad.  I have made Holders for IR buds for work, Channel to mount ladder rack, Video camera mounts for my bosses house all in tinkercad I hope to use something better soon.
