Peek into Ultimaker HQ

Recommended Posts

Yeah during the Ulti-Evening I threw up a little ball concerning an "open office day" at Ultimaker but apparently it's so small there that they "would only be able to fit 2 extra people at once" :)

actually it is something I didnt see at the Ultimaker headquarters.

When you walk around the place.. it is filled with cool prints all over the place. There are really brilliant big prints always beside the reception...

BUT.... they never printed their own office.... That I know of !!

I know they want to keep things quite and keep people away from R and D for obvious reasons... but giving the world a free to download 3d printable model of their headquarters might be a really cool idea.... then people can play around and understand the hive...

after my book is released and finished in the next few days.. Ill have more time... I still have archicad on my home computer and can remember the interior design of your building... I make a lot of pritty images in my head and I was there twice.. more than enough meta data... LOLL

Ian :-)

would be a kinda cool thing for people to be able to print... users can secretly play ultimaker Barbie and Ken... LOLL... we could put a beard on Ken... mmmm wonder who that would be LOL

what is tricky.. is the connection between the back part of the main old building and the factory sheds... There is a good new connection between both on Ground Level but of course no connection on the First Floor... First floor ends at the back of the R&D workshop and a little store room...

its like a puzzle...

Then I can start putting together a 3d model pritty easy....

Guys... I don't want to disturb this party... but... ATM the HQ is very busy building me a brand new UM2, they should not have time to be here on social media :) But if there is any friday-night beerbash today at the HQ I happy to be there. Perfect timing for picking up my brand new shiny Ultimaker. (hint, hint) Weather is great so it can happen just outside the main building. Of course I will bring some beer.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
