hi i am looking to build either ultimaker 1 or 2 but want to source the parts, so apart from getting someone or company to cut the panels out is there a shop or a user who sells them thanks

What country do you live in?

Maybe there's a FabLab somewhere near you. You can get the panels cut there for a good price.

Sometimes you can also have acrylic parts lasercut directly from the suppliers.

I'd recommend getting an Ultimaker 1 instead of a 2. The UM2 is not made to be self-sourced.

(Note that Open Source has nothing to do with self-sourcing parts).

You should also consider getting a different hotend right away. This makes finding the right parts easier, and you can get something more reliable from the beginning. Have a look at the E3Dv6 hotend for example.

You'll need to have someone print a mount for you, but that can easily be arranged through www.3dhubs.com. There's also a "please print this for me" section here in the forum.

Do you have the possibility to order stuff through your company / workplace? There is an industrial supplier called Misumi where you can get most of the metal hardware parts (shafts, bearings, leadscrew and so on) in awesome quality. Not comparable to the stuff you get from reprap stores!

But you can't make a customer account as a private person, only as a corporate customer...

/edit:

You'll find dozens of reprap shops from all around the world, so we'll need to know where you live before we can make any recommendations...
