Open Source Hardware Hero: “Ultimaker 2” Printer Source Files Available Online #3DThursday #OpenHardware #opensource #3DPrinting

Ultimaker2

Keeping true to its commitment to open hardware and potential for sharing source to revolutionize desktop manufacturing, Ultimaker has finally been able to launch the “Ultimaker 2” Printer Source Files:

From day one, we have been recognized for our open source culture and we feel that open source brings the field of 3D printing to a higher level. It is our firm belief that sharing knowledge does not mean losing knowledge. On the contrary, we learn from each other, inspire each other and use each other’s knowledge to create even better products and develop impressive innovations world-wide.

What sets Ultimaker and YouMagine apart is the sharing philosophy. Since the very first time Ultimaker saw the light of day, we have supported open source. We shared our source files and our community gave us valuable feedback. Our YouMagine platform is not only a place where we share our information, it is also a social place, a community, where users can create profiles and start collaborations with other makers. Many contributions by our community can be found in the Ultimaker design as it is today.

The day has come that we are launching the drawings of the Ultimaker 2 and share them with the world. We are excited to see what kind of ideas, innovations, improvements and products this will lead to. We will continue to share our knowledge and experience and look forward to achieving many remarkable 3D printing goals together. Or in the words of Martijn Elserman, co-founder of Ultimaker: “Since its introduction, the Ultimaker 2 received a very positive response and its demand has been beyond expectation. This strengthens our confidence in our philosophy to innovate and improve together with the worldwide community of 3D printer enthousiasts.”

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
