The Ultimaker 3 is an innovative dual extrusion machine with a large build area. This industrial grade 3D printer is the newest addition to the Ultimaker family of printers which includes the Ultimaker 2 + and Ultimaker 2 Extended + as well as the Ultimaker 3 Extended. The Ultimaker 3 allows you to create high resolution and production quality dual extrusion parts. The innovative nozzle lifting system, swappable print cores, and automatic bed leveling make this an exceptionally advanced dual extrusion printer ready for professional 3D printing.
This listing includes the Ultimaker 3 3D printer with the necessary modifications to make it ISCP compliant, the price includes these modifications.
The Ultimaker 3 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 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.
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, two 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. The AA and BB 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.
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 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.
Ultimaker 3 Tech Specs
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.
