New Ultimaker Site Sexy ! But a little boring... :-(

When I come into my office every morning... I loved to click ultimaker.com and see the latest updates on the site and also the cool blogs from Ulti evenings, Fablabs... it was like a very cool magazine with some juicy litle bits of info...

But I loved it !! and i think a lot of other people did as well.

But now with the latest and very modern and attractive layout,, these cool little things have been parked somewhere in the back where Im not too interested in spending 5 minutes to find them again...

Im just not sure if this was a good idea ? It makes ultimaker.com just look like a shop site that has to be visited once.. order... pay... done...

But it was like a magazine with also a shop function ! :-) that was nicer..

So maybe its worth thinking about ?

Or maybe im alone on this idea ?

Have a nice day guys.

Ian :-)

    I agree with you.

    Now it is just an e-shop, and not much optimized.

    Last time, to order several filaments, I needed to query all filaments, enter single item page, buy it, then, select again all filaments, click on the color, etc... many times as many filaments... really boring!

    How about the news carousel on the home page?

    It is intended to give you a couple of new updates every week and still looks organized and tidy.

    If you have never noticed it, that is something to think about.

    If you hate it.. that is also something to think about :p

    It should inform you about every new blog post.

    But in the end, most activity is on the forum. Don't you agree?

      • 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
