A Beautiful Cover Model: The Ultimaker

The Ultimaker 3D printer made the front cover of “c’t magazin für computertechnik” issue 11/2012! The high-circulation computer magazine tested seven 3D printer in the sub-3000€ range. Amongst those: The Ultimaker, equipped with a new UltiController for additional ease of use.

After writing about 3D printing services last year, editorial journalist Peter König moved on to 3D fabrication within your own four walls and seemed to like what he saw. Summarizing his experience with the Ultimaker he stated: “It’s just fun to watch the speedy [print] head, which is building even large parts from razor-thin layers in a reasonable amount of time.”

 

With its elegantly designed light-weight print head the Ultimaker was also the only printer capable of printing a tiny lettering on a test object.

 

If you want to read the full article get a copy at the Heise Shop. Besides the printer review the issue includes quite some details on low-budget 3D scanning solutions as well.

 

On a side note: Bernhard Kubicek, long time member of the Ultimaker community wrote about the development history of the UltiController. An eight-page article well worth reading for all hardware hackers out there.

        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.
