Printer Customization By You, For You

3D printers aren't a "one size fits all" type of deal. Cater to your personal 3D printing needs when you enhance your Pulse 3D printer with a variety of upgrades. Each Pulse is assembled on-demand, to your specifications, then tested and tuned by expert technicians on our Pulse Pros team to ensure optimized 3D printing performance. Choose from the best components available on the market to create a machine of your own. Once you’ve selected your options, you can rest easy knowing that the 3D printer you are about to receive is ready and able to turn your ideas into reality. The Pulse is the first machine to become a part of the MatterHackers 3D printer customization service.

Whether you're printing standard filament or abrasive, advanced materials like NylonX, Pulse offers a variety of nozzles to match your specific printing needs. From Left to Right: Brass Nozzle, Hardened Steel Nozzle, Olsson Ruby Nozzle

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. Printed out of high quality Black PRO Series RYNO filament, the Pulse's 3D printed parts are functional and durable for any print job, and will last for the lifetime of your machine.

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.

Available Upgrades for the Standard Pulse:

Every upgrade available for the Pulse 3D printer has been comprehensively tested by MatterHackers, and are the highest quality parts available. Each upgrade allows you to broaden your 3D printing capabilities, like expanding the variety of materials you can use or a fine-tuned interface.

Olsson Ruby Nozzle
Olsson Ruby Nozzle +$90
The Olsson Ruby is the ultimate 3D printer nozzle, capable of printing beautiful PLA parts but also strong enough to handle endless amounts of harsh abrasives like NylonX. The Ruby was designed to be the only nozzle you will ever need, and with this upgrade your Pulse will arrive day one with this 0.40mm ruby-tipped beauty ready to tackle any project you can imagine. This upgrade replaces the Brass Nozzle that comes stock with the standard Pulse. If paired with the Bondtech Extruder Upgrade, the Hardened Steel Nozzle will be replaced.
Bondtech Extruder with E3D V6 Hotend and Hardened Steel Nozzle
Bondtech Extruder (1.75mm) with E3D V6 HotEnd and Hardened Steel Nozzle +$245
Containing CNC-machined drive gears, the Bondtech QR extruder is compatible with abrasive materials, on top of standard filaments. The ability to 3D print with abrasive material will require a stronger hotend setup, hence the addition of an E3D V6 HotEnd and a 0.40mm Hardened Steel Nozzle in this upgrade. Print anywhere between simple filament like PLA to tough NylonX with this specific setup. This upgrade replaces the EZR Struder with E3D Lite 6 and Brass Nozzle that comes stock with the standard Pulse.
Filament Runout Sensor
Filament Runout Sensor+$95
While a print is in progress, the Filament Runout Sensor constantly monitors filament to ensure successful printing. Run out of filament mid-print? Our Sensor will alert MatterControl to pause your print session. This will allow you to reload filament and seamlessly continue printing. Rest easy knowing incomplete print results will drastically reduce with the Filament Runout Sensor. This upgrade can only be purchased with the Bondtech Extruder Upgrade.
LCD Screen
LCD Screen +$50
LCD Screens allow optional untethered printing, on top of USB connectivity printing, for the Pulse. This LCD screen has an SD card reader on the side for printing files without using a computer and displays basic, essential print factors such as nozzle temp, bed temp, print time, and more in real-time. Feel free to shut down your computer while the printer does its job. This upgrade cannot be paired with the Viki 2 LCD Screen Upgrade.
Viki 2 LCD Screen
Viki 2 LCD Screen +$95
The Viki 2 is an onboard LCD screen with a large control wheel and MicroSD memory card slot that allows for untethered printing on top of USB connectivity. Export your gcode from MatterControl onto the MicroSD card, plug it into the printer and you're ready to roll! The Viki 2 has a slightly larger screen than the LCD Screen add-on which allows for more settings to be viewed at a single time. This upgrade cannot be paired with the LCD Screen Upgrade.
BuildTak Magnetic Flexplate System
BuildTak FlexPlate System+$99
When printing large parts, there is a huge advantage to having a build plate that can be removed and flexed to easily remove the print off of the bed. The BuildTak Magnetic Flexplate System 9” x 10” ensures part removal is super easy and saves you time and effort. This comes with a sheet of BuildTak installed on the build plate.
Garolite Heated Bed
Garolite Bed +$39
From PLA to NylonX, this tough fiberglass-impregnated resin bed surface provides excellent performance across a wide range of materials and long-lasting durability. This build surface is perfect for getting advanced filaments like NylonX to stick to the bed. This upgrade replaces the BuildTak that comes stock on the heated bed. If paired with the BuildTak Magnetic FlexPlate System Upgrade, you will receive the FlexPlate system with the Garolite installed, NOT the BuildTak.

Enjoy this included feature that makes your 3D printing process faster and more efficient.
Heated Bed with installed BuildTak (included)
Heated Bed with Installed BuildTak
Print with a wide variety of materials on the Pulse 3D printer's heated bed. The bed has a pre-installed sheet of BuildTak, making it incredibly easy for prints of various filaments to stick during printing and easy to remove once completed. Install these sheets faster and with less bubbles than tapes or films. Need a great alternative to PEI tape or Kapton tape? BuildTak is the ideal solution.
EZR Struder with E3D Lite6 hotend
EZR Struder (1.75mm) with E3D Lite6 HotEnd and Brass Nozzle
For those interested in fine-tuning their printing with no need for high-temperatures, this is the perfect hotend set up for you. Thermal transitions are kept sharp inside the hotend making 3D printing an easier, smoother, and all around better experience for those interested in printing with standard filament such as PLA and ABS. This feature is replaced by the Bondtech Extruder Upgrade if you select that option.
Spool of MatterHackers PRO Series Filament
One Spool of 1.75mm PRO Series Filament (1kg)
Our MatterHackers PRO Series filament is manufactured to the tightest tolerances on the market. Engineered to highlight the strengths of its printing material, rest assured that the filament you're using is the best of the best, and made in the USA.
