Just got my Ultimaker 2 today.

I have to say I am very impressed with things such as:

Instructions to unpack

Instructions to set up

And the first run wizard

Bed leveling was extremely easy.

First robot print in PLA was fantastic.

It is very very quiet.

The lights stay on so I can have a camera on it in an unlit room to remote monitor it.

and of course that it is open source.

    Hey, welcome. Is there any chance you will go to MakerFaire NYC? There will by about 70,000 people and roughly 7 people from the forum will be there including myself. And some UM employees will be flying in from The Netherlands. And there is a cool announcement from UM on Sep 18 in NYC - if you can make ti let me know and I'll secure an invitation for you and your friends. More details here - as a minimum watch the teaser video (it's only 30 seconds long):

    Yes, welcome, smorgana! I'm glad your first impressions are good. It's a great printer, and I'm sure you'll get some great results.

    And Maker Faire is definitely worth attending. I'll be there with gr5 at the Ultimaker stand, too. No idea what they'll be announcing though... * whistles nonchalantly *

    Knowing one or more of the announcements is not so difficult. You just have to meet the right people.With this strategy, I also have absolutely no idea what at least one of the announcements will be... :ph34r:

      • 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
