Hi All,

I also ordered on the 13th feb (oh oh that is not a good date). And yes the status of the ordering system is a bit difficult. In principle it could help if you can see which orders will be delivered so you can see how long the queue is so you can predict for yourself how long it is going to take. The problem with that approach is that you actually show the amount of systems that you are shipping/producing. This is typically company confidential information but I know companies that do that and you can see the waiting list. A good example is


No I do not work for that company I am just a happy user of their product as I hope to come with a Ultimaker.

They have a similar business also a high tech product with a long lead time. At any time you can see the order backlog and the waiting time is even longer....

I am also desperately waiting for the delivery but I know high tech products do take time to make with all kinds of unexpected hiccups. When I ordered I knew that delivery was planned in March it was on the website at that time.

In the meantime I will spend on preparation for the time the Ultimaker is there. I even found the optimum aluminum for a heated-bed. I also try to improve my skills in DesignSpark since it looks like a promising tool. Next year I forgot that I had to wait for some time.

    My UM1 order was processed and paid for on December 20, 2013!

    I STILL have not received my UltiController or the 3 rolls of filament I paid for. I have been in monthly contact to check the status (I am a bit too patient perhaps). It is 'good' to hear that you folks that ordered similar items the beginning of February already received yours.

    Too bad I didn't place my order AFTER the 3Doodler deal went into effect; I would probably have my entire order along with a FREE 3Doodler.
