Ultra One First Impressions

Post by jhaupt » Mon Nov 25, 2019 8:48 pm

It's awesome.

I ordered one at work a few months ago and at this point I've been working with it for a few weeks. We haven't done much needing dual-head functionality yet but I'm impressed by the print quality; It outdoes my M2 and it blows away our TAZ. First time setup was easy and the build quality is exceptional. The filament compartment and guide tubes are thoughtfully designed but one of my only complaints is that it doesn't fit 3kg spools. This is minor as it's easy to position a standalone spool holder next to the printer with the filament compartment door open. I also plan to put a PEI surface on one side of the build plate so we still have the option to flip it and use the kapton. I do wish PEI were standard.

If we find ourselves needing yet another printer it will be a no-brainer to buy another of these. I would choose this over (for example) a Stratasys any day.

Does the Ultra one still use printed parts such as the exruders or is it total different than the M2/3's? What does it use for hotends?
