United States Orders - Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted · United States Orders - Suggestions

I ordered my UM2 last week and its delivery estimate is early this coming week. I'm very happy to see it moved through rather quickly.

I did however receive the call from FedEx requesting an importer document be filled out ( CBP 5106 ). More ridiculous homeland security crap IMHO. In addition to this documentation he requested that an actual dollar amount value be given to the cable.

I'm not really bothered or making a gripe, but more of a suggestion. When ordering or invoicing is there any way this cable can simply be included inside the UM2 box or not be specifically called out as a detailed item with $0.00 of value ? Or at the very least reduce the UM2 printer cost the value of the cable and apply an actual value to the cable on paper to have to avoid explaining to some person over the phone that your new printer can't be used without a cable to supply power. I'd rather pay the fees on the $1.00 US for the cable than have to have such a trivial conversation.

For any US buyers here is the file you'll be asked to fill out.

    You're about at least the third or fourth US customer writing here in the forum that the cable should have a non-zero value (don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining that you write something which someone else already has written!).

    No, I'm actually surprised how lern-resistant Ultimaker is with this issue... this should be a few clicks in a software and the cable has this one dollar value... should'nt be so difficult. But it would avoid some unnecessary complications for customers...

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
