New UM2 -- Cut the zip ties?

Recommended Posts

I'm excitedly unboxing my Ultimaker2 and following along with the instructions. It says that there are two cardboard pieces wrapped around the x/y axises. On mine there is one cardboard piece and two zip ties (on diagonally opposite ends) which seem to be holding the x/y axises in place. There is nothing in the instructions to cut them, however, step 11 says to move the printer head, which I cannot due to these.

I'm assuming something has changed and the guide has not updated. Should I cut the two zip ties?

Eagerly awaiting the answer. :)

Hi Jeremy!

Thanks for pointing this out.

There has been some changes in the boxing of the Ultimaker 2, unfortunately there is some delay in updating the physical manual.

The online version should always been up to date and can be found under support on our website. Direct link => https://www.ultimaker.com/pages/support/manuals

hope you didn't have any issues in the further unboxing and start up sequence with your UM2?

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
