Hello from Ruurlo, NL

Recommended Posts

I'm not the kind person to write on forums, or write in English for a Dutch audience, but Ultimaker makes me set aside my principles: Ultimaker deserves praise.

I have given myself the Ultimaker as a Saint Nicolas present and it has exceeded all my expectations. The assembly of the machine almost was worth the money, since it is such an elegant design. After I assembled it, it simply … worked!

My hobby is mechanical automation and robotics, and I’m printing parts for the machines I design. This really solves a big my biggest problem: accuracy, It has really boosted the fun I have in my hobby. I can recommend the Ultimaker to everybody.

The machine is great, but the software sucks. This is my biased opinion since I am a software engineer by profession (and by heard). Software Engineers think only their own software is good, and all other software sucks. The fact that I am still working with Curu means either that it is good enough, or it means I cannot do better myself (yet), You decide.

If you are looking for a 3D printer, do not hesitate. Ultimaker works and will provide lots of fun!

    • "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.
