Introducing Ultimaker Breakaway Supports & 0.25mm AA Core

December 05, 2017

Ultimaker Breakaway Material

Ultimaker Breakaway is a support material for multi-extrusion 3D printing. Breakaway support is quick to remove and does not need further post-processing for a smooth finish on your 3D print. Designed for a hassle-free 3D printing experience, Breakaway provides good adhesion to ABS, PLA, Nylon, CPE, or CPE+.

 

Advantages to Breakaway Material

No more sanding or waiting for your support material to dissolve.  You can simply print and break it away.  Print with the confidence of a smooth surface finish on your models.  Since the filament is less moisture sensitive than PVA, it benefits from a long shelf life.

To remove, start by tearing away the majority of the inner support structure with cutting pliers.  Then grab and peel the breakaway support from the build material and finally clean away any remnants with pliers or tweezers.

For more information check out the Ultimaker Breakaway Support Material.

0.25mm AA Print cores

Ultimaker 0.25mm Print Core

By popular demand, Ultimaker has a new addition to the range of print cores.

The new 0.25 mm AA print core features a 0.25 mm nozzle width for ultra-fine lines. Compatible with the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended, the 0.25 mm print core is ideal for prints that need detailed surface quality.

This new addition to our print core range will be offered in type AA (for build materials), and will create uniformity between the Ultimaker 3 product line and the Ultimaker 2+ product line, which offered a range of swappable nozzles using the [Olsson block]. Users will now have the advantage of extra-fine detail prints, with the added advantage of dual extrusion, enabling two color prints, or various material combinations with extra-fine detail.
