Hello from Bavaria, Germany!

Recommended Posts

I'm very new to this community in regards to posting something. However I was already following all the posts during the last 9 weeks when waiting for my UM2.

I esteem the warm and professional atmosphere in this forum!

Last Friday I received my package from Ultimaker :smile:

What to say? Hm? I'm so excited of this product. I already had a lot of fun this weekend with the UM2.

Yesterday evening I tried the jpg-processing functionality of Cura.

So here is the first printed result:

A really perfect print:

20140120 091803


20140120 091821


However, the truth of this print can only be seen when using light behind the print:


20140120 092843


Again, I'm really excited what's possible with UM2.


A warm "hello" to the whole Ultimaker community and to the Ultimaker-Team from Bavaria!


Special thanks to Sander for keeping me updated via PM about the status of the delivery of my UM2!


I appreciate being part of this community!

Hi Sigi,

Thank you and welcome to the community!

The print came out really well. I think the idea is that it shows the image through light.

You could perhaps make the layer thinner so less light is needed to emphasize the image inside.

But it already looks really good :)

I am curious to see what else you will be making!

Hi Sigi!!! Welcome to the UM community!

I'm sure you'll have some questions as you go along, but don't hesitate to ask questions, and keep showing what you're printing: the UM2 is a great printer, I'm sure you'll get lots of great results.


Hi Illuminarti. I'm sure the questions will come ...

I'm glade to have one day off today to try a lot of things with the UM2.

For sure I will show what I'm able to get out of this machine.

    • "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.
