Any mechanism for getting a support ticket looked at

Posted · Any mechanism for getting a support ticket looked at

I sent Ultimaker a support request email on the 12th of October.

After waiting a couple of days with no reply I raised a sales report ticket on the 14th. (IOR-511-67430 in case any ultimaker people look at this!)

It's now the 19th and there has been zero progress on the ticket.

At what point do I just give up?

    Short answer: Never of course... ;)

    Long answer: It seems that answering times from Ultimaker HQ support are very different these days. Some people immediately get an answer others wait one to two weeks (which is much too long IMHO).

    Unfortunately, it's like that for quite some time now. The fact that some UM people are rushing from one trade show to the other doesn't improve the situation neither. If I'm not completely wrong some people at the HQ also had to move to a different building recently which also consumes time. However, if such reasons could be incorporated into a standard answer e-mail when submitting a new ticket, people might be more understanding.

    There are two things you may do to speed it up: write a PM to SandervG or call them. However, I understand the latter is a bit difficult for you due to your location.

    So i'm guessing you already went through the forum (or asked your question here) or your particular problem can't be solved or answered by the community.

    You can pm Sanders here on the forum in order to see what is going on with your ticket maybe?

    Already ahead of you ;)

    Of course I wish it shouldn't be necessary but sometimes our replies are not as fast as they should be.

    Actually Dim3nsioneer is quite accurate how ever the R&D team moving does not directly affect our sales team.

    We did just came out of the most crazy month of the year, where in September and beginning October there are about 6 shows we attend and have to organize. Now it is time to get back on our feet and work our way to the backlog.

    Anyway, I will make sure you will get a reply soon.

    Thank you for your time, patience and understanding.

    If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

      • 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
