Posted · Gently used Ultimaker2 for sale

I was given this from a client two days ago. I’m very new to 3-D printing. I have six rolls of filament that are almost brand new. I was successfully able to make two 3-D prints from what was on the SD card. I tried a third one and I got some layer shifting. I’m not sure why and I really don’t care enough to dig in and try to investigate. I would like to sell at a nice discount. It is located in New Jersey 07726 .pick up would be great but  I’m sure I can figure something out for shipping . PayPal or Venmo works 800 or best offer ..

    To potential buyers:

    Looks like it shifted in Y only.  Pretty easy to fix.  It's usually a loose pulley set screw (there's 6 pulleys on the Y axis) - and usually the one on the motor/stepper which is the hardest to get to but if you have a long hex driver you can get in there without taking anything apart.  Tighten the hell out of those set screws.


    However since this machine may have sat idle for months - I'd try cleaning the 6 rods in the gantry with an oiled rag or paper towel and lubricate with a light oil (any light machine oil will work - e.g. sewing machine oil, or 3-in-1 oil).  one drop on each of the 6 rods.  In theory the center 2 rods don't need oil and will just gum up the ball bearings but a tiny bit of oil can help.

    Wow. You are amazing. Thanks. It has sat for over 2 years. It has literally only printed 4 models in its lifetime.  I will def clean it as it's extremely dusty from sitting.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
