Don't worry, we won't drop the kits from our offering any time soon! We're still great supporters of the hacker community. Also... we keep on innovating and won't leave early customers with a 'legacy machine' empty handed. Specifically, we provide the opportunity to upgrade your Ultimaker to make sure you enjoy the benefits of those who bought the latest version of the Ultimaker. We've done this through upgrades such as the UltiController, the new Hot-end, an extruder drive upgrade, etc.
Ultimaker provides upgrades for you to enjoy the latest 3D printing innovations!
