The Ultimaker Original UltiController

When turning on your Ultimaker Original, you will always see the main screen first. The main screen shows various information, as shown in the image below.


  1. Nozzle temperature: shows the current temperature of the nozzle and target temperature
  2. X/Y/Z coordinates: indicates the current position of the print head and build plate
  3. FeedRate: this is the print speed based on the set print speed in Cura
  4. Elapsed time: shows for how long the Ultimaker Original has been printing on the current print.
  5. SD%: keeps track of the progress of the print


By pushing the button on the UltiController you will get into the main menu, which is divided in four submenus.

  • Info screen: guides you back to the main screen
  • Prepare: offers several options to prepare your Ultimaker Original by manually controlling certain settings
  • Control: allows you to change machine settings of the Ultimaker Original
  • Print from SD card: select a file to start a print


Once a print has started the menu on the UltiController will slightly change. Instead of the “Prepare” option you will now see a “Tune” option in the main menu. This allows you to change settings (e.g. temperature and speed) while printing, in order to have more control over the printing process.
