Posted · Lead time for new ultimaker 2

Greetings from Iceland

I am looking around for "the best" 3D printer on the market, I'va come down to the conclusion that ultimaker 2 is the one I want but, then I saw it somewhere that the lead time is 8 WEEKS!! is that really the case? because I wanted to get the printer no later than after 1 week or so maximum 2 weeks, so maybe I will have to buiy another 3D printer just because of the lead time beeing to long... hope this is not right :)

best regards

    Yes, that's the current lead time unless you can find some other reseller that has them in stock for immediate delivery.

    Ultimaker are working hard on getting this lead time down but it's not an easy issue to just solve, they're still a fairly small company.

    makershed.com has them in stock in the US.

    Actually, Makershed is presently showing "This Product Is Temporarily Unavailable", so apparently they have sold the 75 UM2s that they received about a month ago.

    Hi Newbie three day ago I purchased an U2 from Imakr which turn out to be faulty with some electrical issue maybe caused during transportation I couldn't t say however the after sale service from Imakr (and even pre sale service) i well below the standard.They refused to replace or refund the machine.Advice from them is often incomplete, erroneous and approximate.

    I don t know if you live in uk but not far from them(about 700 mt) in London on the same street there is an Ultimaker retailer offering 7 day return in case you not happy with your purchase with no question asked.It is also 10£ pound cheaper.It s called Dream3d

    I am on dispute with Imakr owner which turn out to be very unprofessional and unreliable making the "sale of good act 1979 a total farce .My advice is to stay away from them and give Dream3d a go,they seems more concern about you been happy with you purchase than Imakr.

    good luck

    Hi Andrea,

    Without hijacking this topic, could you send me a DM with some of the difficulties you are having?

    Perhaps through technical support and some trouble shooting I will be able to help you.

    Thank you!

    Hi Andrea,

    To follow up on your post, I just got off the phone with iMakr and they told me they have repaired your Ultimaker and it is ready for pick up. I think they handled it rather professionally and hopefully you can get back to 3D printing asap.

    If you have any further remarks or questions, please feel free to contact them or our own support team.

    We would be happy to help.

    Thank you and have a great day!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
