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.

Ultimaker S3: Advanced Features

From the first layer to the last, the Ultimaker S3 features next-generation 3D printing reliability, letting you start a print job and get back to your work – confident that your print will succeed. To achieve this reliability, the Ultimaker S3 features advanced active leveling, a stiffer build platform, a heated build plate, and more accurate stepper drivers, resulting in the highest print quality of a machine in this form factor. And dual filament flow sensors notify you if you run out of material.

The Ultimaker S3 makes it easy to achieve high-quality results after a 30-minute introduction – even if you don't have a technical background. And our customers report that, after 3 hours' experience with Ultimaker software and hardware, they discover many more 3D printing opportunities in their own work. The Ultimaker S3 easily facilitates and integrates with any workflow thanks to its award-winning touch interface, advanced active leveling, and predefined print settings.

On every level, the Ultimaker S3 is Ultimaker's most accessible 3D printer yet. Its small footprint, no-hassle operation, affordable price, and low cost of ownership allow more entrepreneurs and SMEs to adopt 3D printing as part of their in-house production workflow and quickly achieve ROI, by creating parts and models with the widest material choice on the market.

The Ultimaker S3 is compatible with almost any 2.85 mm filament. 3D print with third-party materials as easily as Ultimaker filament, with predefined print settings on Ultimaker Marketplace – including carbon fiber-reinforced composites for high-strength parts.
