Step 1: Safety Checklist

The Ultimaker has many moving parts that could cause injury.

Tip: While the Ultimaker is in operation never reach inside it, or open the visor or the lid.

When trying to remove support, scrapers can cause injury if used incorrectly.

Tip: Always scrape away from yourself. Rest the bed in a vertical position, against a sturdy level surface when removing a part. Always use short, ramming motions to remove a part from the print bed. Always keep fingers or other body parts out of the path of the scraper when removing a part from the print bed. Keep the angle between the scraper and the print bed small while you are removing your part.
