Original Ultimaker kit - missing pieces


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original Ultimaker kit - missing pieces

Hey there,

finally received my UM1 kit - yay! Unfortunately, the kit is missing a few pieces, specifically:


  • 1 hobbed bolt
  • 3 washers M8
  • 1 hex nut M8
  • 1 cap nut M8
  • 1 small bearing
  • 1 feeder spring

I've ordered the kit from the official German reseller, iGo3D. Should I go contact them for the missing parts? It seems that they forwarded the package directly as received from Ultimaker, so I'm not sure how far they can help me.


I already opened a support ticket with Ultimaker yesterday, but haven't received a response yet.


It's kinda frustrating, having an almost complete UM1 sitting on my desk… :-P


Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Enno,

    Could you send me your ticket number in a DM?

    It would be best to contact us and we would be happy to send you the missing parts.

    Have you double checked the packaging?

    Most of the parts you have missing come from one pack that very rarely has pieces missing.

    Obviously, it is possible but if they would be lying around somewhere that would be the fastest solution :)

    - Hobbed bolt, you mean the drive bolt for the feeder upgrade?

    My apologies for the inconvenience,

    Hi Sander,

    thanks for the offer - I sent you the DM with the ticket number and my address. As I said in the DM, the parts are nowhere to be found (but my appartment is cleaner now). :-)

    Any indication when you'll be able to ship the parts?

    Best regards

    - Enno

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
