Pricing...

Recommended Posts

Not sure if there is a better place to buy in the US, but I was going through the process of buying from the Ultimaker shop and noticed a few issues:

There is no way to buy an Original, just an Original+.

The Original+ has a price of 995 euro on the store landing page, but it's 1,195 euro when you click on it. Certainly, I'd prefer the 995 euro price.

I tried to create a ticket on the support site to report this but when I try to register it continuously tells me that there is a required field left blank. I even entered a bogus order ID (despite the "optional" tag listed next to it) but that didn't help.

Anyone else seeing these issues?

Thanks.

J

Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

For the support you dont need to register. Just click the submit a ticket button next to the register button.

Also there is a store you can buy from but cant remember what it is. Hopefully someone will pick that up.

Ok, that's confusing. I see where stuff is going wrong.

The 995 is for the UMO:

https://shop.ultimaker.com/product/9/UltimakerOriginal'>https://shop.ultimaker.com/product/9/UltimakerOriginal'>https://shop.ultimaker.com/product/9/UltimakerOriginal'>https://shop.ultimaker.com/product/9/UltimakerOriginal

The 1195 is for the UMO+:

https://shop.ultimaker.com/product/52/UltimakerOriginal

And the front page of the shop indeed shows the price for the UMO and links to the UMO+. Silly mistake...

https://shop.ultimaker.com/

Note that the UMO+ has better electronics and a heated bed, but no option for dual-extrusion right now.

I guess the future option for dual extrusion on the UMO+ will be the same as on the UM2: Most probably a new printer head with two hotends that can be driven by the Ultiboard2 together with the heated bed.

Hi pm_dude. Has any one in the Toronto area ordered a um2 from this company? If so, what was the cost (including shipping, duty and hst). Iam looking to buy in early Feb.

Thanks

Demand is very high due to recent innovation, materials, and general body of enumerated experience and knowledge, with so much more to go

Im looking forward to the different ways folks approach the various challenges with all the variables

Ima pay what the US dealer is asking, the closest (or close enough), and has a good support rep

I'm from Ottawa and got my UM2 from Dynamism in October of last year. The experience was superb and I highly recommend them if you're in North America.

Hi Tiny Dancer.

What was the total cost to import from Dynamism?

Thanks

The shipping was $180 if I remember correctly and I believe the duty charges were around $350. The exchange rate is different today but I originally used this to calculate it.

I think all told it came to about $3100 Canadian, but don't quote me on that.

Thanks for the info. TinyDancer. I think I will go that way. Did you have any setup problems? If so, who did you get parts from? How was the service?

No, I had it printing about 30 mins out of the box. I had an issue with the temp sensor after about 500 hours of printing, but the North American support got me sorted out pretty fast.

    • "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.
