9.4 / 10

In a nutshell, a great printer for all kinds of users, from beginners to 3D professionals.

8.2 / 10

The whole machine is super reliable, especially with the geared feeder. The UM2+ has a very high print quality for a FDM printer and a great precision. It prints right about every material available with a low failure rate. Reliability is most important for me, and I never regretted my choice to buy the UM2+, heck I even bought a second one for more capacity!

7.6 / 10

It's a cool printer with good quality and is very easy to use for inexperienced makers and hobbyists.

8.8 / 10

I have been positively overwhelmed at the ease of use and maintenance for the machine. The Ultimaker App allows you to access an easy guide on how to keep your machine in the best shape it can be.

8.4 / 10

An excellent 3D printer with a very good value to money ratio in terms of its high quality and speed combined with low noise levels when printing. With moderate experience and not afraid to maintain your printer you can get near zero print failure jobs.

"Superior build quality, precision engineering and a great support team, not to mention huge community are only some of the things that make the Ultimaker series of printers amazing!

With community feedback taken seriously, the upgrade from Ultimaker 2 to 2+ basically fixed every known issue with the range so far, and with the upgrade also available as a kit for UM2 owners, this is simply perfection in customer service. "

I think the Um2+ is worth the price over the go for entry level users. Build volume is the main concern and the go is a bit to small for the price compared to the UM2+, which has a good amount of build volume to grow into. Print quality for parts is excellent. Get straight into your projects instead of upgrading/tuning your printer.

The Ultimaker 2+ is a great machine, very reliable and excellent print quality

9.4 / 10

Very reliable machine that doesn't need maintenance all the time, great quality prints

9.1 / 10

It's a nice looking and reliable printer. For non-professional use, cost might still be an issue but without knowing full market, it might be worth the price. I definitely do not regret buying it.

"The best is very good. I hardly got any issues with it. Just that the plug and on/off button is at back. I have to move my printer to switch it on and off. So is the case with the filament "

7.5 / 10

It's a great reliable machine. It almost eats all materials and the nozzle change is just the best! Has a few downsides. Not a great user experience (interface, software) and the quality could be much improved with some simple adjustment in the design (such as a little wobbly z axis)

9.8 / 10

I love this machine, I have been using Ultimakers for 3 years now and it will take a lot for me to switch to a different FDM machine

9.4 / 10

An amazing machine, that just works every time. It's a more expensive machine however, but you get what you pay for. It's pre-built, so you don't get the fun/understanding that comes with building your own machine

9.6 / 10

Easy to use, no hassle setting it up. Set up the bed-height and plug and play! Really satisfied with this machine.

I really like the reliability and performance of the Ultimaker 2+ i bought it for the fine layer height and resolution and i feel it has achieved my expectations for a sub 2k printer.

7.2 / 10

Nice looking, well designed printer. One thing I miss REALLY: automatic build platform compensation.

"Easy to use.
Ultimaker uses the open source Cura slicer engine - quite good with settings.
A drawback: printing directly out of Cura doesn't allow to stop/pause the print/change of printer settings.
We had some issues with adhesion fixed using blue tape.
We would recomment the ultimaker 2+"

"I think it's the best Filament printer out there since a lot of printers have a cheap build quality while this is the real deal... I mean... the first UM was wood and bad. But now its feels its build for serious rough environments. But sadly some parts are overly expensive which is not cool since the products are 50% cheaper on the same suppliers without a UM name on it (yes same suppliers) not china.

Anyways great printer! will buy more of them when I got the money!"
