Sourcing the Hardware

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I want to build the ultimaker and being an open source printer, I wanted to challenge myself. Is there an updated Rev. 4 bill of materials that shows where you could get them if you wanted to build the ultimaker from scratch? Thanks

      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.
