Ultimaker 2 – Unboxing, Review and a lot of Drooling! Excellent 3D Printer

The bad print quality on the test print was due to the broken cooling fan from shipping/customs. The print quality will be perfect once I replace the fan arrives which Ultimaker has already shipped to me! They have fantastic support.

I finally received my Ultimaker v2 thanks to my buddy Sander who has been a huge support to my 3D printing adventures. I have had the Ultimaker 1 for a while and have done tons of prints and the thing is an absolute dream but it lacks a heated bed and looks like it was built in wood shop. So I was super excited to see the Ultimaker v2 looking like a Ferrari with it’s frosted translucent sides and very tidy wiring and not to mention the bed and most beautiful build platform I’ve ever seen. The printer also had some features that I wasn’t expecting like an LED illuminated build platform that will make all my future 3D printing videos on this unit look AMAZING!

Easy to use and reliable
To operate the Ultimaker 2 you don’t need any specific technological knowledge. With its 49 decibel it’s a quiet machine. Because the electronics are bundled the Ultimaker 2 is stable and reliable. With its nice design the Ultimaker 2 is suitable in any working or living interior.

Designed for non-expert and expert
We’ve made the Ultimaker 2 to be as easy as possible. You don’t need to have a huge technological background to understand our printer. At the same time we’ve developed the printer in a way that it’s still interesting for experts to work and create with.

Larger build ratio
We’ve managed to get an even better print-to-size ratio. This means the printer size has remained the same, and the print envelope became bigger.

Low cost material
