Greeting from Northern Ireland & price query

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, hope to be placing an order for an UM2 within the next 10 days. I have a query on the price imakr are showing the price @ £1999 sterling with availability from 2-5-14 however Ultimaker are 8 - 10 weeks lead time on one with a price of 1895 Euro. At the current exchange rate that comes in at £1562 am I reading that right or is there vat to be added if so at what rate?

Many thanks Andy

The 1895€ are ex.vat (even says on the page right next to the price, though its in grey letters that are harder to spot)

Its 21% and you need to add shipping as well. For me in DK thats 26.84 with FedEx, which means the final price would come to 2325,43€...

If you start to fill in an order you can see the correct price before reaching the payment section and hitting the "place order" button...

Buy your UM2 from iMakr, but I'd be very wary about buying filament from them - they will happily sell you whatever you order, not mentioning that it won't fit your printer (wrong spool size, or wrong filament diam). I've had good success with Spectrum filaments (see my review topic), others will have their own recommendations.

    • 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.
