hello all!

some of you may have already come across me on the forum, posting the odd topic, but its now my turn to say hi

Been assembling My ultimaker since last Sunday, and had it fired up and ready to go the friday just gone, and finally have got pretty close to some amazing looking prints.

I have to say it was a rough decision choosing to get an Ultimaker version 1. money isn't my strongest side, but tech is. I was tempted by an RepRapPro Ormerod, but i needed higher detail, and a small space.

I was then wowed by the forum, almost every issue i thought / knew i would have, i found. i found the fantastic "post assembly guide" by Aaron, which made assembly and calibration a dream, and the constant stream of calibration tips about heat, speed and backlash have made me print some fantastic things

i have also seen the fantastic first print recommendation, new fan ducts, feet for noise, frames to reduce extrusion motor noise (if my house had a basement, i would live in it (my parents are very picky about noise!)) (i have to say that the Ultimaker is very quiet!)

and of course, my thanks just have to go out to the ultimaker team. you have created an amazing machine, very high detail, compact and quiet, the price is a bit, eeeeeehh,,, well never mind, but worth every penny.

i hope that the ultimaker will launch my model making passion even further, and hey. after bringing in a 3D printed cube to work, I may have just been promoted to "we are thinking about getting an expensive 3D printer for prototyping and we need someone with experience" :)

so prepare for me asking many many questions, and occasionally posting the odd thing or two. i tend to be a forum trawler, not a thread starter.

also, if you are in the east Midlands, or really anywhere in the UK, don't be afraid to ask me to print a test sample of something if you are tempted to get this fantastic machine

    Hi, err, 0235. And welcome to the forums! It's great to have you here. Don't hesitate to post any questions, and post some pics of your prints too :-)

    Good to see the East Midlands getting some more representation in here... I'm from Nottingham, originally, but long since transplanted to the US.
