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.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
