The Ultimaker 3 Extended is the first ever dual extrusion printer produced by Ultimaker. Ultimaker has built a loyal following over the past several years because they make exceptionally high quality printers which have a reputation for reliability and dependability. The new Ultimaker 3 Extended is the evolution of all of Ultimaker's 3D printing efforts. This printer comes standard with an automatic bed leveling system, which makes printing more effortless than ever before.
Interchangeable Print Cores - Print with Every Material
The Ultimaker 3 comes with swappable "print cores" (aka hotends) so that you can experience greater dual extrusion reliability by utilizing specific cores and nozzles for different material types. Currently, three cores are available - AA and BB. The AA core is the core designed for standard materials such as PLA filament, ABS filament, etc. The BB core is designed for use with dissolvable support materials such as PVA and HIPS. Ultimaker cores feature nozzles which have customized geometry so that they are optimized for different material types. That means that you can expect greater reliability and fewer failed prints.
Dependable Dual Extrusion
Ultimaker's innovative dual extrusion system allows you to print with two materials at once so that you can utilize multiple colors or support materials such as HIPS. Dissolvable support materials like PVA allow you to create complex prints without using breakaway supports. The dual extruder on the Ultimaker 3 Extended comes with a unique auto nozzle-lifting system which picks up your secondary print nozzle when it is not in use. This allows the user to achieve cleaner prints without the stringing commonly associated with dual extrusion printers.
The new fans on the Ultimaker 3 Extended are ultra low noise to minimize distraction. The Ultimaker 3 Extended comes with two new radial fans and fan shrouds which greatly improve airflow. The result is superior cooling, better quality bridging, faster printing, and seriously smooth printed parts.
The Ultimaker 3 Extended is a fully open source 3D printer and as such, you can utilize any 3.00mm filament that you desire to use (although we recommend filaments with a diameter below 2.90mm such as our PRO Series which has a diameter of 2.88mm). Please note that some Ultimaker filaments will now be shipping with NFC chips which can be read by the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended. These NFC chipped spools allow materials settings to be auto populated for you. However, you may still continue to use any 2.85mm, 2.88mm, or 2.90mm filament that you desire to use with your new Ultimaker 3 or 3 Extended.
You can now print remotely over WiFi directly to your Ultimaker 3 Extended via Cura or you can print using a USB stick. Feel free to check on your print at any time using the built in live camera on the Ultimaker 3 Extended.
The new build plate on the Ultimaker 3 Extended is designed for active and automatic leveling. A capacative sensor in the print head measures the distance between the bed and the nozzle. The tilt angle is then compensated by adjusting the z height on the first few layers. This leads to better build plate adhesion and more accurate leveling. Additionally, the new build plate is also lighter and stiffer than previous build plates. Lastly, the build plate is heated so that you can print with a plethora of materials.
Ultimaker's PTFE tubing has issues fitting some 3mm filament, depending on their true diameter and/or a wide dimensional accuracy. For PLA and ABS, we highly recommend our PRO Series, which has a true diameter of 2.88mm and an accuracy within 0.05mm.
