Has any one heard when these could be coming out of the ultimaker bat cave ?

(1) ulti panel with printed casing

(2) official heated bed unit from ultimaker

(3) double head printer version

(4) selling the extended higher version of the ultimaker

if some one could give us the answers to these items today, that would be very nice... ;) :lol:

    Never knew it was called a "bat cave", for what I can see its an old building, not a cave.

    Even if I know, I cant tell you, because then the support team will be spammed with pre-order questions.

    EDIT: Its the UM lab, not the bat cave ;)

    Good reason not to tell anything :mrgreen:


    1) is released.

    2) has been spotted at the UM HQ a few months back, but no word on it.

    3) I've seen a dual headed Ultimaker at Protospace. More on this below.

    4) It should be quite simple to build this yourself if you really want to. From a basic kit, with longer Z rods and new side panels. Your build height is limited by the size of your laser cutter (which is why Protospace has a larger one then Ultimaker)

    Dual extrusion, with the right parts you can already build this, hotend kit bolt some parts you can buy, but a few things you'll need to source yourself, as they don't sell those yet. Ulti-RepG34 supports dual extrusion as I understood from mr_seeker. And my response to the question if Cura supports dual extrusion was "get me a 2nd extruder and I'll make it". To my surprise they are going to get it too me. So it is something that has their attention. But as with the Ultipanel, from prototype to product in stock can take a while.

    But really, things are ready when they are ready. If it's not in the shop, then you cannot get it. And you'll have to wait then. They do not give off estimates about when things are ready so they cannot be held accounted for it if they do not make it. Product development is not as easy as you might think.

    There have been some posts from UM on the google group regarding this recently.

    Erik posted this:


    Currently the priorities in terms of mechanics/extrusion are:

    1) first the hot end,

    2) then the extruder drive mechanism and

    3) then a heated bed.

    Within a few days, an little sneak peek into what we're doing will be made available by my colleague and co-founder Martijn.


    A few days was later updated to be the coming UltiEvening on Monday.

      • 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
