Full Product Details
The Ultimaker 3 enables incredible performance with an impressively small footprint. Now you can 3D print complex geometries straight from your desk without the hassle.
Maximize print performance with Ultimaker Print Cores
Maximize print performance and machine uptime with Ultimakers swappable, material-matching print cores. Choose 0.25 or 0.4 mm for a higher level of detail and surface quality, or 0.8 mm for faster prints and quickly swap print cores and switch between different material combinations to minimize downtime. Get quality, consistent results with customized nozzle geometries for different material types: non-abrasive plastics (AA) or water-soluble support (BB).
Ultimakers print core design enable you to set up your 3D printer in seconds, whether you need reliable build and support material combinations for geometric freedom, a different nozzle size, or to print in dual color.
With the Ultimaker 3 print a wide variety of first and third party materials materials up to 280°C.
The Ultimaker 3 is packaged with 2 x AA 0.4mm print cores and 1 x 0.4mm BB print core.
Dual Geared Feeders
The Ultimaker 3's dual geared feeders exert more force on the filament, and also eliminate heat exposure from the motor. Change 3D printing materials with ease, select the correct pressure with a push on a button, and use the lever function to manually insert or remove a filament. More control means more successful, reliable and durable 3D print results, without compromise.
Dual auto-nozzle lifting system
Print large, intricate designs with new confidence using the Ultimaker 3’s reliable dual extrusion technology. The innovative dual auto-nozzle lifting system is designed to mechanically lift and lower the second nozzle — so that your idling extruder is out of the way when you are actively printing with the other core. This minimizes contamination when printing two materials and avoids part crashing.
Dual Colour 3D Printing
Achieve high quality dual colour 3D prints with the Ultimaker 3's dual auto-nozzle lifting system. This technology enables high quality results for your client or student projects.
Complex Multi Material printing
Delivering freedom and convenience: the Ultimaker 3's dual extrusion technology enables advanced multi material printing. Print complex geometry with soluble support structures that dissolve away or even two different but compatible modeling materials.
Soluble support structures enable better support and surface quality when printing overhangs and reduces the risk of breaking detailed and fine parts during support removal.
Equipped with a heated build plate, the bed supports heating up to 100°C. To get accurate, consistent results with a range of materials, the Ultimaker 3 uses a rigid glass build plate that quickly and easily clips to the platform, keeping the plate securely in place for the entire print duration.
Heated beds are important to minimize warping and are required to print materials engineering materials like PETG, ABS and PC.
Versatile Material PrintinG
With Ultimakers integrated ecosystem of reliable hardware, extensively tested materials and cutting-edge software, the Ultimaker 3 delivers high quality results with versatility and an optimised 3D printing experience. The Ultimaker open filament system enables users the freedom to try and test other types of existing filaments on the market.
When printing with Ultimaker filament, the Ultimaker 3 identifies the material that is being loaded and checks the correspondence of the filament and print core type you are using. Coupled with their extensively tested preconfigured material profiles in Cura, the Ultimaker 3’s material recognition system ensures your 3D printer is set for the highest-quality results.
Print with a wide range of materials, including Ultimaker Nylon, PLA, Tough PLA, ABS, CPE, CPE+, PC, TPU 95A, PP and PVA along with a wide range of 3rd party filaments.
Ultimaker also offer a variety of pre-configurations for 3rd party filament brands through the Material Alliance Program, a collaboration between Ultimaker and 3rd party filament manufacturers to deliver a better customer experience. The strategic alliances formed with these global material companies opens up the use of the most sophisticated engineering plastics on Ultimaker printers with less trial and error.
Efficient Build Volume
Utilize the Ultimaker 3's compact and efficient build volume of 215* x 215 x 200 mm (Width x Depth x Height) for your prototyping and design projects or for small volume batch printing.
*When printing with two extruders the maximum printable width (x axis) is 197mm.
Monitor every stage of your 3D printing project remotely by simply connecting to your Ultimaker 3’s Wi-Fi network. The result? Optimised workflow and exceptional control.
Control & Connectivity
Print standalone via USB or connect to the Ultimaker 3 with WiFi connectivity. With WiFi and NFC connectivity the 3D printer automatically recognizes which materials and print cores are loaded and communicates the setup to Ultimaker Cura.
The Ultimaker 3 supports both manual and active leveling to achieve a consistent first layer.
With active leveling on the Ultimaker 3, the capacitive sensor in the print head measures distances between the print bed and the nozzle, and the tilt angle is compensated by adjusting the z height in the first layers. The result? More accurate leveling and improved build plate adhesion
