What’s been keeping us busy?

Posted on February 10, 2012 by siertwijnia

Hi Everyone!

 

Finally some communication again! We have been quiet for a while, not because we didn’t do anything, but because we were so busy with lots of things!

Our plan is to communicate better and more!

Let me summarize a few points of things we have been working on the last 2 months.

New Building

Finally we moved out of the studio of Martijn! His house became way too small for all our activities! Also, him and his family deserved to have their house back. After looking around for a building, we found lots of expensive office buildings, but when Martijn found an old abandoned school building, we fell “in love” with it. We agreed with the local government that we could rent the building for a very reasonable price, only when we did the investment to get the building “alive” ourselves. So we had to arrange a new heating system (just in time, it’s freezing outside!), dig a trench for a gas pipe, clean the whole building, fix the leaking roofs, replace most electric wiring, get furniture and computers, install IT equipment and – not the least important – find great people to come and work with us. So please see the fragment below to get an impression of our new “Headquarters”!

Production

Big shipment coming up!

Since we have more space to run production and get it better organized, we try to get ahead of schedule. But this is still hard, because sales are growing very rapidly, faster than we anticipated. The machine consists of a lot of parts, and when a single part gets delayed, it might delay our shipment schedule. At the moment we are awaiting a shipment of electronics, which is holding us back. It will come in at the end of next week, so we are preparing a very large shipment we have never done before!

Support

We are proud of all people helping us out at the forum and the googlegroups! Without you guys we could never have done what we do right now! We’d like to continue to work on making the Ultimaker a Plug-and-Print machine!

Development

We have an interesting feature cooking that makes your Ultimaker much easier to use!

I hope you liked our update on what we are up to.

Groeten uit Holland!

Siert, Martijn, Erik

And the rest of the team:

Harma, Tamar, Bart, Anita, Lindsay, Menno, Vincent, Sander, Aike, Nikki, Marrit, Martijn, Merle, Calliope, Julius, Florian
