    I have no idea why anyone would buy the go... be aware it has no heated bed...

     

    But it's so cute.

    It's great for people who have to show 3d printing off for whatever reason. It is small and has a travel case. I imagine it would be pretty useful for professors/teachers. Also some people don't need to print large things. I rarely print anything over 120mm.

    But a heated bed would be nice.

    Eh? I don't see how the surface quality would be better on the go. There are no fundamental changes to the technology in it. Its just a smaller (and more affordable) machine. I can imaginge that some people want it, but it's definately not a machine that i would buy (umo+ ftw ;))

    Shorter belts and axis mean less springiness, which could, in theory, increase the print quality. However, I did not see a difference in actual prints.

    About the size, the UM2go is already available as option in Cura, so you can see the full print size in there.

    The smaller platform also means it's less bouncy than the bigger brothers. I dunno, I felt like the prints I did on it looked slightly better. Mind you, this isn't a night and day difference by any means. Probably not something people in general would notice perhaps, but I thought they looked nicer. With everything being so much shorter it just feels more rigid to me.

    Is it enough to outweigh the lack of a heated platform? Eeeh, not really. Then again I'm sure it wont be long before 3rd party upgrade kits are available to fix that.

    Valcrow is right though, it's damn cute :D

    I think the quality IS slightly better. I'm not techy enough to know why but that's just what it seemed like when we printed those 0.04mm frogs.

    I pre-ordered one. Just for those little parts that I need. Also so I can take to to work so I can print some things there or when I go to people's places. Means I can draw and print while I'm there and don't need to wait till I get home to print it. Then go back to drop it off. I also got a spare 3dsolex heater block for it for .8 speedy prints.

    I find 75% of the things I print are within the build volume.

    I must be an odd-ball, cuz the regular UM2 is pretty darn portable. I've been going to the schools and doing 3D printing demonstrations... I just throw the UM2 in the back seat :) No fancy mini version with a case needed!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
