Ultimaker Unveils Ultimaker 3:
Its Next Gen Professional 3D Printer
Industry’s First Desktop Printer That Makes Professional 3D Printing Truly Accessible
NEW YORK- (October 18, 2016) – Ultimaker, the leading open source 3D printer manufacturer, announced today the global availability of the next generation of its 3D printing product line, the
Ultimaker 3. With Ultimaker 3’s advanced capability to print complex geometries using industrial-grade materials right from the desktop, users gain freedom of design never before accessible in the professional environment. Fully integrated hardware, software and materials configuration, as well as full settings alignment, ensures both efficient workflow and precision print results. With Ultimaker 3, professional and reliable 3D printing is now available for multiple users across the organization.
Ultimaker 3 provides:
- An unlimited number of geometry options thanks to its new dual extrusion system that allows
the freedom to produce more complex outputs in a full range of engineering materials, including
Nylon and dissolvable PVA, and two color. The impact: design is not constrained, opening up
opportunities for experimentation, creativity and innovation.
- High uptime and maximum performance due to material-matching print core design, enabling
users to switch cores optimized for Ultimaker’s own industry-grade materials in seconds. The
impact: repeatable, high quality output is achieved in a low-maintenance environment.
- Enhanced printer automation that eliminates the guesswork from printing prep. Smart material
detection through NFC technology, as well as active bed leveling, tunes Ultimaker 3 to the best
possible settings for specific materials and corrects level errors. The impact: anyone, regardless
of their role within the business or skillset, can produce a consistently perfect model every time.
- Advanced connectivity through integrated Wi-Fi capabilities, in addition to USB and Ethernet
connections, results in seamless access across the organization. A built-in camera, connected to
open source software CURA allows for remote monitoring of print output. The impact:
organizations achieve efficient workflow and access across users.
“Our team is constantly working to evolve the 3D printing market, and the Ultimaker 3 represents three
years of development with the goal of delivering a product that serves the needs of demanding
businesses,” said Jos Burger, CEO of Ultimaker. “3D printers have historically been tapped by businesses
for straight-forward prototyping and short run production. The extended capabilities of the Ultimaker 3
introduce a wide variety of new applications and we’re excited to get them into the hands of
professionals that can capitalize on the benefits of 3D printing across a variety of industries.”
The Ultimaker 3 is available today through Ultimaker’s network of global partners and the printer starts
at $3,495 ($4599 CAD).
“By meeting the growing professional needs of the enterprise and educational markets we can tap into
these segments as their reliance on accessible 3D printing increases.” adds John Kawola President of
Ultimaker North America.
