It was fascinating to read all the speculations over the weekend, from lawnmowers to 2D printers. But now it is time to get real.
With great pleasure, I am allowed to say: ‘Yes, Ultimaker¬≤ exists!!!’
It will be launched at the NewLab Brooklyn Navy Yard, Maker Faire New York, iGO3D store in Germany and The BIBA awards at Manchester. Ultimaker¬≤ will be traveling with us¬†across the world to various other events like TCT, Maker Faire Rome and 3D Print Show.
Come meet us there and get your first glimpse of this wonderful machine.
It will immediately be available from September 20th in our webshop
and we expect to ship out the first orders from October 1st.
During the rest of the week I will post some more statements that will reveal a little bit more about the machine.
To make a proper start I will share some specs with you:
- The Ultimaker¬≤ produces only 49 decibels of sound (three times a whisper).
-¬†Printing envelope is 226 x 226 x 206 mm¬†(¬†8.9×8.9×8.1 inches) -¬†Printer size: 358 x 338 x 389 mm(¬†4.1×13.3×15.3 inches )
- Pro electronics, all the electronic parts are combined into one reliable and steady board.
- A heated bed.
- A heated bed. It is so good, I have mentioned it twice.
