Ultimaker, or how to lose customers...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker, or how to lose customers...

It's incredible.

In my new Ultimaker 1, I have a problem with the PCB 1.5.7.

I have opened a support ticket. (Sunday evening 04/05/2014)


Unfortunately, I have to date received no reply.

I am very disappointed and would never recommend this company Ultimaker in my study circle.


The extremely long delivery time and the consolations were still excusable but what follows I think too much.


regards Walter

    They have issues for sure. Two suggestions:

    PM your ticket to Sandervg he is the community rep and might be able to help you with your issue.

    Post your issue here on the forums (with pics if you can). You might think it is unfixable but there are many bright people here with vast knowledge of the UM products. They might be able to help you cobble a fix together to get you running while you wait for a formal resolution from UM.

    So I scanned that thread and unfortunately, they have already ran you through the gauntlet of checks.

    I have an idea and will reply in the other thread.

    Welcome to Ultimaker.

    The worst company ever in my opinion.

    Lead times of over 2 months for a product which is stated as on stock in the shop.

    Same here. I will never recommend someone a Ultimaker. Or buying something over this company at least.

      • 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
