Ultimaker 2 vs. Ultimaker Original+

Recommended Posts

Um2 assembled, not easily modified by end user.

Um+ kit, easily modified by end user.

I have helped put to together 8 UM+ (I run workshops for schools) and they are great!

I do not have experience with the UM2, but reading these forums has lead me to the conclusion that the UM2 is not drastically different.

If buying in the US consider dynamism.com as a source for imported UM of both flavors.

If you just want to open the box and start printing stuff then the UM2 is what you want.

In saying that, you still have to do a lot of tinkering on any printer to learn the ins and outs to get excellent prints.

    • "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.
