Ultimaker Original + (can somone please post pic of completed print electronics?)

Hi, I'm at the end of my build and the instructions don't show where the wires connect to in the electonics. This should be mostly simple to look and figure out but the instructions say things like "plug in the blue and purple wire...for the fan" and I don't have a blue and purple wire...so I'm guessing it's the black and red one because I can see a little black and red wire coming off the fan.

Also, I cut the connector off the end of my heat bed wire because that's what I thought the instructions were saying to do...and now I'm reading a part that seems to say I need to "plug" them in to the other side of the board. If that's correct I cut the connector off already so that will be yet another trip to the store to try to fix something else.

If someone could please post a picture of their working print electronics that would be terribly helpful because it would take me about 2 minutes to see where all the wires actually are supposed to connect to.

I'm pretty frustrated at the quality of this kit at the moment. There are a lot of missing items (as many have mentioned) and there are also parts of the build instructions that are wrong (as others have mentioned). I'm sorry my first post to this group is so negative but I'm really feeling like I should at least have the correct and high quality build instructions for a kit I paid $1,500.00 USD for.

    I don't have the UMO+ but I have UMO and UM2. I believe you have this white circuit board. All the connections are labelled pretty well. BOTH sides. Heated bed goes to the green connector as shown. "heater2" is for a second nozzle (dual print heads) so you can ignore that. These are UM2 photos but it's the same board:



    Similarly E2 (extruder 2 - goes to second feeder stepper) and temp2 (second nozzle temp sensor) can be ignored and should be empty.

    Heater wiring, stepper wiring, and temp sensor wiring can go either way. Fan's however matter (red wire goes to power or "+", black wire goes to ground or "-").

    Thanks for the replies folks...VERY helpful. Peetersm yours showed exactly what I was looking for. Turns out I did end up cutting something I wasn't supposed to. I bought a couple connectors and crimped them on so now my heat bed works. I hope this thread saves someone else the headache.

      • 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
