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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
