Posted · Hello from Ruurlo, NL

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!

      • 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.
