UM1 received in Alaska!

Recommended Posts

I received my first 3D printer, the UM1, yesterday morning. I stained all the wood Indigo Blue before realizing there was no UltiController Kit in the box. Later today, I will look more closely at the parts I did receive and make certain nothing else is missing.

I also received one roll of yellow filament rather than the Flexible black and Transparent I had ordered. I believe the filament was on back order, though I was given no evidence of such in the packaging.

Hi Xisle

Do you have the Ulti-controller ordered?

The Ulti-controller must be purchased separately for the kit, I think.

Heating bed, dual extrusion kit, and Ulti-controller, are optional components.

I think the heating bed is a very important component for Alaska ... brr.brr. :smile:

I also believe that each machine contains a free role filament. If you have already ordered more things, then those things could come later with a second package.

I definitely ordered the UltiController Kit. I bet, due to the unexpected delay in my order, they quickly shipped out a UM1 Kit and everything else I ordered will come together at a later date. The packing slip certainly doesn't indicate that.

I can imagine the learning curve and calibration will keep me busy until the rest of my parts arrive.

I do worry a little about fluctuation in temperature from my shop entrance opening/closing throughout the day.

So you wait not in vain, and not have to speculate. Ask the Ultimaker support, where is the rest of the order.

How warm you can keep your shop for? And with what because the room is heated? Is it because very quickly in the minus range when the door opens?

But I think it is sufficient to choose a place that can not be so much disturbed by the wind.

Have fun and learn while tinkering.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
