UM2 delivered in 5 days (NL -> USA)

Recommended Posts

I ordered my UM2 and three extra spools of filament from ultimaker.com on Sunday, June 22 2014 and FedEx delivered it to my doorstep in California this morning, Friday June 27. At five days total, that is quite a bit faster than either of the two estimates I received when ordering (UM2 delivery was variously quoted at 6-8 weeks and 8-10 weeks in the two order confirmation emails I got on June 22).

The day before it arrived, a FedEx import agent called me with an import form I had to fill out, and wanted a value for the 0,00 Euro power cable item. I said it was included as part of the UM2 itself, which was apparently OK. I have not (yet) been hit with extra import duty or fees, although that can apparently happen weeks later.

So far so good. The new UM2 is printing OK so far, although I have a few initial observations which perhaps should go in another thread.

Hi Jbeale ;)

:roll: Phew, I think it is always for something wickedness when someone reported to have received his machine after a few days. :angry: Many are waiting, or have been waiting for up to twelve weeks. :wacko: Now I've been waiting many weeks for a positive response regarding a few spare parts, and nothing comes ... :huh:

Nevertheless, welcome, and have a nice time with your Ultimaker. :lol:

Markus

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
