Far, far, far from being an expert.  I have successfully printed images from the supplied SD card.

 

How do I get sample images off-line and make it available to my machine?

    There are about 1 million models you can download from thingiverse.com.  Or you can design your own model in CAD and save your model as an STL file.

     

    Then you need to slice the model.  I recommend the latest version of Cura.  Slicing converts the STL to gcode file and then you put the gcode file on the SD card to print it.

    A little more detail -

    1) download STL file(s) from thingiverse.

    2) open the file in cura

    3) Slice it.  Check the results in cura to make sure it looks correct (ALWAYS CHECK).  Often part of the model won't slice at all.

    4) Save - cura saves the result as a ".gcode" file.

    5) Copy the gcode file to an SD card

    6) Put the SD card in the um2go

     

    There's lots of sub steps.  If you have used computers a lot and know how to download you should understand most of the sub steps.

      • 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
