Ultimaker 3

Complete design freedom

Ultimaker 3

Professional 3D printing made accessible

  • Complete design freedom
  • Reliable dual extrusion with water-soluble support
  • High uptime and fast changeovers with swappable print cores
  • Cohesive 3D printing ecosystem and connectivity

Complex prints made easy

Create sophisticated models and intricate geometries like this Gyro by Virtox – and remove supports by resting the print in water, without leaving a trace. Ultimaker 3D printers are most reliable dual extrusion machines on the market.

Water-soluble support structures help you build intricate structures, complex mechanical parts and smooth surfaces.

Ultimaker 3: Advanced Features

Dual extrusion

Combine build and water-soluble support materials to create complex mechanical parts and intricate surfaces or choose to print with two colors. Ultimaker 3’s unique auto nozzle-lifting system ensures a smooth, professional finish with every print.

Swappable print cores

Faster print core changes mean higher uptime and easier maintenance. Your Ultimaker 3 comes with print cores for build (AA) and water-soluble support (BB) materials.

New optimized cooling

Ultimaker 3 has a powerful, low-noise fan system. Featuring two new radial fans and fan shrouds, it creates greater pressure build-up for an improved airflow. This ensures better cooling, high quality bridging, faster print runs and smooth print surfaces.

LED status indicators

Print core LED lights ensure an optimized 3D printing experience by alerting if any user interaction is needed.

Optimized Ultimaker Cura material profiles

Extensively tested preconfigured Ultimaker Cura profiles make for a smoother, more seamless 3D printing experience by automatically adjusting the necessary settings for each material and print core. Produce consistent, quality results with every print.

Material recognition with NFC scanner

Built-in material recognition system ensures your 3D printer is primed and ready for the task. Ultimaker 3 detects and identifies the material on the spool holder and checks the correspondence of a filament and print core type being used.

EEPROM print core chip

The EEPROM chip in the print core memorizes the size and type of your nozzle, notifies you in case of misuse and, as a result, helps achieve higher print success rates.

Active leveling

The capacitive sensor in the print head measures distances between the print bed and the nozzle, and the tilt angle is compensated by adjusting the z height in the first layers. The result? More accurate leveling and improved build plate adhesion.

New refined design

The Ultimaker 3 features a build plate that’s lighter and stiffer, which reduces vibrations and helps produce an unrivalled print quality. The removable glass plate makes it easy to access your prints.

Heated glass build plate

Thanks to the heated glass build plate, you can print using many different materials and with improved build plate adhesion.

USB port

Enjoy standalone printing using a USB stick (16GB included).

Wi-Fi / LAN

Send your print project quickly and easily to your Ultimaker 3 via Ultimaker Cura.

Live camera

Monitor every stage of your 3D printing project remotely by simply connecting to your Ultimaker 3’s Wi-Fi network. The result? Optimized workflow and exceptional control.
