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

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
