Ultimaker sourcing

Recommended Posts

Hi alls,

I’m just discovering Ultimaker.

I’m very interested in buying MandelMax or Ultimaker.

(For about same building dimensions.) :mrgreen:

So, I suppose the only source for buying a complete Ultimaker kit is :

https://shop.ultimaker.com/en/ultimaker-kits.html

However, I’m wondering if it’s possible to change nozzle in order making finer and more precise parts.

I've seen a post about this but in which case other nozzle are compatibles ?

Any advice would be welcome,

Thanks,

Dominique

Hi Dominique.

There are a few other chinese sources for copied ultimakers.

But and its a big but, the quality is sometimes.... questionable and also you do not receive any help from the people that actually designed and made this amazing product possible.

Also the price is almost the exact same and for me, i would like to but a product from the real makers and creaters than save 50 dollars and buy a questionable knock off.

About the nozzle, to be honest i have seen incredible details printed from the normal standard nozzle that comes with the ultimaker. far far better than any thing the reprap can bangout.

so basically stick to the best and buy from the ultimaker guys. (your link above)

Good luck and please keep us updated on your ultimaker !

Ian :D

Makergear have a few nozzles. I was about to order a brass tube and nozzle a while ago but they wanted $35 for international shipping, $20 without tracking/insurance, so I backed out. I thought that was a bit ridiculous for a few grams worth of stuff.
