Good product, easy to use

If there is any failure, usually the failure is mine. Easy to use and good quality.

Easy and reliable

I started touse this kind of printer in a fablab, finaly I baught one. Very easy to use, just frustrated when I have to wait 10 or 20 hours to print a simple object.

The Ultimaker 2+ is a excellent Printer but somewhat overpriced.

 Very reliable, quite and easy to use with a high success rate. Considering  other printers on the market it is somewhat overpriced when compared to the offered features. The software CURA is excellent and extensive but is not unique to the Ultimaker.

A steep learning curve but reliable once you are familiar with the tricks and quirks of the printer

The fibre feed can get stuck, the way the filament comes off the spool could be improved.  If the nozzle is clogged a good hotplate and fine wire is better to clear it than the methods suggested online.

It is well built and can make good prints but needs to be watched in case it gets blocked or the filament hangs up.

Ultimaker 2+


I am a teacher with six Ultimakers 2+ in my room. I oversee 9 of these printers and upgraded two from regular version 2 to 2+. These printers are professional quality. I have literally thousands of print time, and run time on these printers with students and they are still printing like a champ! Before purchasing these printers, I tested other less expensive brands. While some printed well, I discovered in our air conditioned classrooms that the humidity affects the prints and whether they stick to the build plate.  We paid the extra money for heated beds, enclosures, and we couldn't be happier. We have had them serviced after two years but honestly, these printers are very robust indeed. If you have the budget, go with these quality printers. I had a printing issue, I posted it to the large Ultimaker community and we were able to get the issue figured out. The open source community of people using these printers were fantastic!

awesome results from a newbie

I started 3ding to help with ppe needs in the neighboring villages.  It's amazing what I've been able to achieve.  I've had some messes, but this machine has been very forgiving and the customer support has been exceptional let alone timely and understandable.  The  Ultimaker 2+ was a little more expensive, but seriously worth the money.

Ultimaker 2+

I have upgraded the 3d  Ultimaker 2 printer a while ago to be compatible to a 2+ which really made a difference. The printer works well for my little inventions.

Ultimaker 2+ review

i've made a lot of prototypes with this little printer and each time the result was good enough. The main problems are always the settings for the filament used. When these are nice, the results are very good. The basic principle when design a piece to run on this model would be to think about the max 45° curve in order to avoid the supports which are not easy to manage with Cura.  Thebest filament I've ever used is the ICE ASA-X with 100°C bed temp and 245°C extrusion temp with anything more on the glass because the warping is null.
