UltiMaker CPE+

UltiMaker CPE+ material is chemical resistant with high dimensional stability, with the added advantages of increased temperature resistance and higher impact strength compared to regular CPE.

Print Settings
  • Print speed: 35-50mm/s
  • nozzle temp: 260 C
  • Bed Temp: 110C
  • Fan = 25%
  • Flow = 105%
  • Bed material: Adhesion Sheets on glass (advanced printing kit)
  • Door: Yes (advance printing kit)
  • Adhesion Method: Brim or Raft for large parts
Reasons to choose UltiMaker CPE
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Excellent toughness and dimensional stability
  • Good interlayer adhesion, especially when using the front door add-on
  • Low levels of ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Ideal for short-run manufacturing and functional prototypes
  • Transparent filament option available
Differences between UltiMaker CPE and CPE+
  • CPE is available in a wide range of colors to choose from, including grayscale for more professional looking models.
  • CPE’s tensile and flexural strength are higher, whilst CPE+ is formulated to be up to 10 times tougher.
  • CPE+ features a temperature resistance of up to 100 ºC when compared to CPE, which is only resistant up to 70 º
  • CPE has a better build plate adhesion than CPE+, but you won’t notice the difference when using the stickers supplied in our Advanced 3D Printing Kit. Notes

CPE+ is a straight upgrade to CPE, but requires a little bit more tuning and specific settings to print well. It provides good layer adhesion and a higher glass temp so if you need to print parts that are chemical resistant, or watertight, this is your best bet! In general, CPE+ is a well rounded material with good print characteristics, strength, and mechanical properties.

CPE+ is a little bit more challenging to print than PLA, but not as difficult as Nylon. It doesn't warp as much and doesn't have moisture issues. Compared to regular CPE, the glass temp is much higher so there is much higher tolerance for temperature deformations.

We recommend CPE+ for people who are looking at a general engineering material. CPE if you want color options.


CPE (co-polyester) materials are chemical resistant, tough and demonstrate good dimensional stability. It is a preferred choice for both functional prototypes and mechanical parts. While both CPE and CPE+ provide similar performance characteristics, CPE+ provides the added benefit of higher temperature resistance and increased impact strength.

UltiMaker's CPE+ can be compared to Colorfabb HT in properties and characteristics.

CPE spools come in 0.75kg. 2.85mm diameter and approximately 90m long.
