purchase of UM original or UM2?

Recommended Posts

Posted · purchase of UM original or UM2?

Hi,

I am new to the 3dprinting world. I still have to decide between purchasing a UM orig or a UM2 printer.

I wanted opinions of users about the differences between the two models about:

-the print quality?

-the print head/nozzle clogging rate? It seems from the forum that UM2 has more clogging issues than the UM orig?

-the fact UM orig has not a heated bed: is this an issue?

-which of the two models is more reliable to print special plastics such as woodfill?

-what justifies the price of UM2 is twice the price of UM orig as they seem to print the same end quality?(is it just the fancy box/packaging?)

Thx

Hi hugues

Welcome to the Ultimaker forum!

Most important: Wait with your decision until Ultimaker has made their product announcement scheduled for the 19th(?) of this month. The UM Original will see some serious modifications after which the difference between the two UM models is expected to be much smaller (it will include a heated bed). Well, it's not yet official, but 99% for sure.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
