Ultimaker: the really faaaaaaaaaaast 3D Printer
Posted By sculpteo on Oct 14, 2011 |Ultimaker is the new 3D printer on the block with a large build volume, high speeds and accuracy. It was designed by Martijn Elserman, Erik de Bruijn and Siert Wijnia.
In a “Star Wars”-like introduction they narrate how it all began:
“Once upon a time, a small group of people gathered in a FabLab in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Their mission was to build RepRaps. After lots of struggling, they succeeded. They did not realized that they had learned microcontroller programming, mechanical engineering, Electronics CAD, and so on, and so on… They also didn’t realize, that their journey, had just begun!”
