An Early 3D Printer With Some Issues, but a Good Experience Overall

I bought this printer used, so it had some wear to start out.  Since there is no automatic leveling or Z zeroing,  it took a little work to get it going.  But then it printed well for a while. But then things started to wear out and I found out that the build quality of this printer was not high. The user community for this printer is great, and have designed many work-arounds and upgrades.  This is the first printer that the Cura software was written for, so the software is top-notch.  Print quality varies, with your expertise in setting it up, the quality of the plastic filament, and how fast you push the printer. (It has a knob on the front that varies the speed on the fly.)  

It did not come with a heated bed, so I print in PLA only. Overall, it has been a delight to learn a lot about 3D printing thru this machine.

My experience on original Ultimaker

Hello

I bought an original Ultimaker printer for the pleasure of my first mounted 3D printers. This allowed me to understand system are time in service. I found the installation instructions very easy to follow and accesssible all. . The Cura Software is perfectly consistent and easy to use for people who start. The original Ultimaker allows working with alot of quality selections of polymers such as polycarbonate thempérature to 260 ° and with a precision rarely achieved in other 3D printers After almost two years, I still have not been out, and I'm still happy and proud of my original Ultimaker. I would not trade against anything.

Mic.

It has been a good companion, but now is old

Learning 3D printing with an Ultimaker Original has been a great experience, however now there are more reliable and more equipped machines on the market.

This Frankenprinter keeps on satisfying

I first assembled this printer January 2013. Many mods and upgrades later, it is still churning out prints that rival the best from new printers in the same (and higher!) price range.  The user community is so active and supportive that almost everything I wanted that was not initially available is now doable aftermarket. The only reason I have for looking to build another printer now is because I'd like to print much larger objects in one go.
