Hello fron Wijchen, the Netherlands.

Recommended Posts

Hi All, hi Ultimaker people.

After an 8 weeks wait today my UM2 finally arrived, Estimated delivery was 8-10 weeks, so good job ultimaker!

On question; how bad is it to put some pressure on the object (from the side with a knive or so) while the glas plate is in the machine ? or is it better to always take out the glas for removal of the object ?

Some small remarks / tips from my side;

My order was not complete, one rol of white ABS was missing, although this is not mentioned anywhere I assume it was not available and you will still ship it ?

My name was not on the shipping label (only company name), I had it delivered at work, so not very practical to leave out the name ;)

Probably hard to keep up with the changes... but the machine did not work exactly at startup as in the manual... the part where your supposed to feed material material never came, so I use the change material function and it was ok, the SD card did not have the robot file (only the test cube) and my unit only had 2 tiewraps in it (4 according to the manual).

For now the machine seems very easy to use, first results look great!

It's fine to put some pressure on the bed - I never take the glass off. Usually, once the plate has cooled to room temperature, prints will pop off quite easily with a little twist, or a sharp edge under a corner.

You don't want to try to remove the prints while the bed is still close to 60º, as you risk bending the plastic.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      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. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
