First impressions

Recommended Posts

OK its been almost a week since I have been on the Forum's. My Ultimaker2 arrived last week so have been a little pre occupied :-P

Just wanted to say, I'm very impressed with the U2. Had a minor issue at the start where one of the connectors supplying power to the two side fans, had come loose. Very quickly solved by pulling back the covering and putting it back in place.

The packaging was very good and aside from the connector, everything looked intact. The setup was easy and documentation was very clear. The device is well built and I love the fact that the documentation covers basic maintenance, that was one thing I was concerned about in terms of knowing what to do.

At the moment I have been printing existing stl files, some from the supplied SD card and others from the YouMagine. As wanted to get to grips with all the settings, although the only thing I have really used a lot is the speed settings to play around with the print quality. In the next couple of days I will start printing some things I have made so guess that might be where the fun starts as I'm very new to 3D design.

I would like to thank the support from not only those on the forum but also to Sander in HQ and Alex and Paul in the UK offices. Its really good to have a responsive support network available, so thanks folks, really appreciated.

Fantastic printer and well worth the money.

Hello,

 

I'm happy for you that you could receive the UM2 and it is impressive. Ok for now I'm actually a little scared!

 

However, a small picture of your installlation, place or is the printer and print some would have to get an idea.

 

That reassures me a little when the package, especially after lengthy discussion on the subject of the UM 2 arrived broken! Briefly, it is classified in the hazard ...

 

I do not just simply say thanks for his impeccable installation. I wish to ask you these images. This will perhaps also reassured, like me, those who wait :)

 

Good print to you.

Alex.

Have started to upload a few images into the Gallery, apologies for the quality. Will try to get some higher resolution images uploaded later this evening.

In terms of delivery the exterior of the packaging was perfect, no big dents in the box, and the printer is well packed.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
