12 week lead time on Ultimaker2?

Recommended Posts

As there are still discussions on lead time here in the forum I wanted to share my own situation: After an order in November (on the 22nd) where the leadtime was said to be around 6 weeks I am still waiting for an update on my shipment. After an initial contact with Ultimaker customer support I was told that my order would be shipped last week but it is still pending.

To put things in numbers:

Order date: 22. November

Days passed since order: 80 days

Or 11 weeks and 3 days

Or 2 months 18 days

I asked for an update through the Ultimaker ticket system but am still waiting for a response. While I appreciate the fact that success is a burden I do not understand why lead times are communicated that cannot be met - at least in my case.

I would appreciate any kind of reaction from Ultimaker if they are interested in customer satisfaction.


Update from 11th of February: Ultimaker is potentially not to blame - I ordered through one of the official resellers for my country, iGo3d and it looks like they delayed the order.

Except that sander is away for a show. So he might respond slower then the usual support channel.

Anyhow, we do not look at order date, we look at payment date. Putting in an order and not paying it for a few weeks does not suddenly put someone at the front.

Just to put things into perspective - I ordered through a local reseller iGo3D and it looks like they did not order directly but for whatever reason waited 2-3 weeks. My order reached Ultimaker in the 2nd week of December. Appreciate the update and will find out why it took iGo3d so long...

That is interesting, i will have to wait two more weeks than my order date because my funds were returned by mistake.

Add that on top i have 2 times costs of sending money and 1 cost for returning money.


What David says is correct, but when your payment is delayed because of some problems getting it through but the intention was to pay immediately your shipment date will be calculated based on your order date.

Seemingly Temperature was to low and the bed leveling was not perfect. Also the right ear always ands up like this it is normal. Its cooling issues because of how far the fan is away on that side.


Thanks a lot for this feedback. It was my first print on my first 3D printer after a long day at work. I tried again and am a little bit more satisfied with the result. I increased the temp to 230 and reduced the speed to 80% (no worries about the top head nobs, I played a little with the on the fly settings and increased the material too much)

    • 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.
