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.

BVOH vs. PVA: Which is Better?

May 05, 2022

Fused Filament 3D printing is fascinating, but not without it's challenges. For example, some 3D printers can not print steep angles or unsupported bridges. This is why support structures are needed. However, support structures can be very time-consuming and difficult to remove. This leaves many to ask, "Is there a solution to this problem?". The answer is, yes there is.
