Spool holder

The first step of setting up your Ultimaker 2 is attaching the spool holder at the back side of the 3D printer. Insert the spool holder in the hole at the back of the Ultimaker 2 and push it down until it snaps into place.

Glass plate

The glass plate is the print surface for prints on your Ultimaker 2. We are going to install it the following way.

Open up the two build plate clamps at the front side of the build plate with a hex wrench and gently slide the glass plate on the build plate. Make sure it snaps into the build plate clamps at the back and close the clamps at the front to secure it.

Caution: The build plate clamps can be sharp, therefore it is advised to use one of the hex wrenches for opening them.

Power supply

To finish the installation the power supply will be connected. Before connecting it, make sure the power switch is in the “off” position.

Connect one side of the power supply to the wall socket and the other side to the Ultimaker 2. The flat side of the cable connected to the Ultimaker 2 needs to point upwards. After this, you can turn the Ultimaker 2 on.
