New Ultimaker 2+

by DanTexasMan

(Apologizes for the cross post if that is frowned upon)

So, my Ultimaker 2+ will be here tomorrow. I've left the Wanhao Duplicator i3 group and joined this one. HELLO!

I'm very excited. This printer looks amazing. The reviews are fantastic and the very few print videos I've been look great. I will have to make an unboxing/1st print video just so there is more than 1 or 2 on the Internet. I'm a little concerned about printing over USB. Ultimaker straight up tells you "Printing Method: SD CARD", but I know it has USB for firmware updates, so I'm guessing that is just a regular serial communication port which would allow Cura, Repetier, Octoprint, etc to work over USB. Does anyone else print over USB specifically on the 2 or 2+ ? What are your experiences ?

Also, this printer apparently hauls ass, upto 300mm/s! Has anyone printed this fast? How's the quality? I plan on experimenting with different print speeds to find that sweet spot, but I'm hoping the sweet spot will be faster than 40-50mm/s

Anyway, look forward to posts and prints from this printer.

Cheers,
Dan

Ultimaker2+ Upgrade Kit

by RobotMama

Hey everyone,

I ordered my Ultimaker2+ Upgrade kit a month ago now. As soon as it arrives, I'm gonna post a little review of the kit here.

So far for my status: I ordered at IGo3D.com, which sadly now is the only provider in Germany for Ultimaker Parts, no more ordering via the Ultimaker Shop. In the beginning it was 1-2 weeks, after many lame excuses it went up to 2-4 weeks, now they state the kit as out of stock and I'm still waiting :( with no info at all about the status of my order. Let's see how this progresses.

So far the kit looks like a good improvement and also will come with axis rods and complete print head, inclusive cooling https://ultimaker.com/en/products/extrusion-upgrade-kit.
