If Ultimaker decides to release an Ultimaker Mini Kit - I'll be all over it. You know, something with a small nozzle (like 0.2) tuned for small and intricate prints.

 

Absolutely! I would be client no. 2!!! :cool:

    Here's another Ultimaker ripoff.

     

    What's cool though, is the size. If Ultimaker decides to release an Ultimaker Mini Kit - I'll be all over it. You know, something with a small nozzle (like 0.2) tuned for small and intricate prints.

     

    Don't count me in as no. 3 client, using one of these for a year now, and a lot cheaper :)

    Interesting... What is your experiance with this small nozzles?

     

    Hi,

    Obviously printing takes 2 times longer and using small layers.

    I,ve sharpened it as much as possible, to prevent bending and moving of higher prints, because of the drag.

    Its a little higher (1mm) then a standard nozzle, so you have to adjust your z switch or bed every time when changing.

    But while searching yesterday I saw sets in different sizes (0.4, 0.3, 0.2) sold as well, that's more convenient.

    looks very cute.. ahhh a little baby ultimaker...

    but i have to ask... if you have a nice ultimaker1 original with 2 or 3 different nozzless.. you can print amazing prints...

    so whats the big thing about a little smaller printer ?

    Ian :-)

    ok... but still... im not sold... iv seen people race around with ultimakers on the backs of their bikes... carry them in IKEA blue bags while shopping.... its not a big problem....

    if the print quality some how was a lot better.. then id say.. cool ok...

    But this just seems like a..... dud concept when you can grab yourself a bombproof ultimaker1...

    Ian :-)

    It's the same as with 7" and 10" tablets. You can carry the 10" tablet everywhere. However, a 7" tablet is more comfortable to transport...

    I didn't say carrying an UM1 is not possible.

    I know there is an english guy who can even carry a small car on his head... :p

    Thank you for the details - great looking pictures.

    Could be worth trying especially as I print a lot of very small things for my mcpX BL RC helicopters...

    Maybe I´ll order a set and give it a try on my second head... :-)

    @Ian: I "only" have an UM2. And obviously a mini Ultimaker would be perfect for micro tinkering and printing small objects with lots of details. That's what I want it for.

    I went so far and kickstartered this mini printer:

     

    It is so small and cute. Would be the perfect printer to show around and loan to friends (in order to get the hooked). Because, you know, I can't give my UM2 away. The void it leaves ist too hard to bear :)
