I bought a "new" ultimaker 2 and I think its second hand.

Recommended Posts


Could someone help me by telling what the box contents of a brand new ultimaker 2 should be. Such as warranty card, manual, plastic wrapping on power supply etc. Cleanliness of the printer (found hairs and a lot of dust)

I think I was ripped off by a shop in Holland that sold me my printer so I would just like to confirm these things before going back to the shop.

Thanks for any details you can send me.

The glass plate is no longer bubble wrapped. It's shipped shrink wrapped with four protective plastic covers on the corners and then placed in the top tray that holds your filament spool, power cable and the papers.

Unless you got the brand spanking new packaging. In that case it's placed inside the cardboard box that hold all of the bits and bobs for the printer such as the power supply (in its own cardboard box like Didier says). The new packaging uses styrofoam, the old one folded up pieces of cardboard.

    • 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.
