Hi all!


Finally got my Ultimaker2 yesterday! It took 8 weeks to get, but it was well worth of waiting!


I've been looking for printer more or less for an 1 and half years or so. Latest on the list has been

Cube X trio, Makerbot 2X and Ultimaker2 which I discovered recently.


I chose Ultimaker2 because of numerous reasons:

+ Accuracy

+ Speed

+ Build volume

+ Open source (I like to tweak and keep my options open and development on going).

+ Price

+ Heated bed

+ Possibilities to use differend kind of materials.

++ Community was the last, but influenced most on decision! Good job fellow Ultimakers!


First i was interested on Ultimaker original, but decided jump start on printing.


Little minus in the list was that there was no dual extrusion. Luckily it was released out that is coming and I am waiting for it :)

I would very much like to do dual material combos on my designs.


I've been following this community for about three months now and it has been an pleasure.

Everyone seems to be polite, helpful and very very inspiring!


I bought this priter to make prototypes of my designs in the field of electronic engineering.


I have allways used Inventor for designs, but lately started learning open source or free softwares to keep costs at realistic levels.


Im looking foward to join the community and advance in the field of 3d printing and designing.


Best regards

    a big warm welcome Ari to the ultimaker family :smile:

    There is one requirment to be a member of this family !!.....

    you have to be creative and a ...... little crazy... if you tick those two boxes.. then welcome !! :wink: LOL

    Have great fun with your ultimaker2, its a monster maschine for printing very accurate models and beautiful surface finishes.

    Im printing non stop since I have my ultimaker 2 and have lost almost no model prints what so ever.... no plugins or hacks.. just a clean working maschine..

    Hope you can show us some of your models when possible... :smile:

    Have a nice day.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
