Ultimaker 1 with V2 Hot End + Ulticontroller For Sale

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 1 with V2 Hot End + Ulticontroller For Sale

I've agreed to buy FingerPuk's Ultimaker 2 - so need to sell my trusty UM1.

The thing that attracts me to the Um2 is the higher print resolution. Many of the things I'm trying to print are very small (< 1cm^3) and need that extra definition.

In May 2013, I entered a competition on GrabCad to win one of a number of Ultimaker Printers - and as it turned out, I did win one.

This was my entry:


A couple of months later I receivied my Printer - and it's been fantastic! I've owned two previous printers, a RepRap Mendel and a BFB 3000 - but the Ultimaker produced results that were at least 4x better than either, and much faster!

I've used it a lot over the 10 months I've owned it, mostly making cool stuff.

It was one of the last UM 1's produced before the UM 2 was released and was factory assembled including the Mk 2 Hot end and Ulti-controller. I've added a flexible coupling on the Z-Drive which improves striping on tall prints, a better fan duct and an improved spool-holder which will take any filament spool design I've found so far.

I'll warranty that it's in good condition and perfect working order and I'll supply it with some filament (whatever is left on the current reel) and all the blue tape I have (several rolls). Enough to get you started same day.

I'd prefer not to mail it as I did not keep the original packaging - but I will deliver it personally for free within 100 miles of Horsham, West Sussex.

I have no idea what it's worth - but they seem to change hands on eBay for around £850 plus delivery. However, I hate selling on eBay - it seems to attract idiots!

Make me an offer in this ball-park and it's yours!

Here are a few of the (cooler) things I've printed recently:


Replacement mechanism for under one of the keys on my Laptop.


Prototype light housing (for 50mm MR16, 12v lamps)


iPhone holder for my Land Rover


Complete working planetary differential gearbox. The bolts are M6 for scale.

I'll try & grab some photos of the actual machine - but I figured you know what it looks like and would rather see what the print quality is like!

      • 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.
