Self-Made Quality Components
The Pulse offers top-of-the-line upgrades such as the Bondtech Extruder and Olsson Ruby Nozzle which are used to 3D print parts that make up the Pulse 3D printer's own anatomy. Quality breeds quality and MatterHackers strives to use the best of the best.

Less Configuring, More Printing
Every Pulse 3D printer arrives with fully pre-configured software and settings specific to your upgrades and loaded into your MatterControl account. Our Pulse Pros spend time testing and calibrating the printer to your specific customizations so you don't have to. Built for reliability, the Pulse arrives ready to print with the best-in-class components that guarantee quality print results. Spend less time configuring and more time 3D printing right from the get-go.
Quiet Desk Companion
The Pulse Pros at MatterHackers don’t just fine-tune software; they also fine-tune the hardware. Motor dampers are installed on every single motor on the Pulse 3D printer. Small rubber feet made of flexible printing material, TPU, are attached to the bottom of the Pulse. The dampers and rubber feet work together to absorb vibrations caused by the various motors running on the printer, thus leaving minimal to no vibrations transmitting from the printer to the surface that the Pulse is sitting on. This allows for muffled 3D printing making the Pulse a nice, quiet desk companion.
Not a fan of the sound of motors? Motor dampers tremendously help reduce the noise for a quieter 3D printing experience.
