UM1 spare parts nightmare


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM1 spare parts nightmare

I bought the Extruder Drive Upgrade and the Knurled Drive Bolt Kit on the Ultimaker store.

Here's my Experience :

-On the 14th of May a package arrives containing the full Knurled Drive Bolt Kit and ONLY the screws for the Extruder Drive Upgrade...nothing else.

-On the same day I opened a ticket with the support reporting the issue.

-Today (4th of June), after endless communications and delays from the support, a package finally arrived. It contained all the parts for the Extruder Drive Upgrade, but ONE. (and no, it wasn't the screws which were missing).

I am now AGAIN waiting for the support to reply and I wonder how long it'll take for them to send out the missing piece of plastic.

It's hilarious and frustrating at the same time, not only that the first order was screwed up, but that the items sent out to fix the issue, were WRONG again!

Ultimaker, how much are these issues costing you?

Not only as a matter of customer satisfaction, but as actual shipping costs for this mess.

Can't you put in place some basic quality controls?!?!

    Hi Antiklesys,

    Thank you for your post.

    I am sorry to hear that it has been quite a troublesome path so far and it has proven to be difficult to get you the right parts.

    Could you send me the ticketID of your support ticket so I can look into it?

    Also I did not quite understand what you meant by you received only ONE..

    One what?

    Thank you for your time, and lets solve this asap.

    Hi SandervG,

    Ticket ID is: VDN-889-99063

    What I meant is that I received all parts, but one is missing.

    If you can open the ticket I have sent you, I have attacched 2 pictures of the problem.

    One is taken from your website, from the store page, in which I circled in red the part which is missing.

    The other picture is a picture of the package I received, where you can see there are all parts, but the one marked in red is missing.

    I hope I won't have to wait again several weeks to get this issue sorted :/

      • 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.
