Ultimaker has developed a global reputation and following for having printers that work very well and require very little tinkering. The well designed print head on this printer will quietly and accurately build your creation with an accuracy of 20 microns. This leads to a printed part with a very smooth finish without highly visible print lines. The heated bed allows you to print with a variety of materials and rarely needs to be re-calibrated. Start printing large parts today with a build volume of 9 x 9 x 8 inches. This printer comes standard with a 12 month warranty so you can rest easy and know you're covered.
Once you pull your Ultimaker 2 + out of the box, you're ready to start printing.
