1 ULTIMAKER 3

Pros
Increased uptime and lower maintenance due to dual extrusion with water soluble support. Auto leveling 3D print bed. Print with two different materials and two different colors.

Cons
Basic control panel interface. No automatic loading of the materials.



Design and Features

Ultimaker 3 is a professional 3D printer designed with complete freedom and uses fused filament fabrication technology to make you build successful intricate and complex mechanical structure. The dual extrusion with water soluble support is been a big advantage of this 3D printer. The faster print core changes ensure increased uptime with lower clogging risks while the design includes print cores for build and support materials. Your manual task of adjusting the settings based on the material and print core is eliminated, while giving you smooth seamless 3D printing experience. The NFC scanner is incorporated to sense the material on spool holder along with the filament and print core type before starting the print process. The EEPROM chip helps you in avoiding misuse of nozzles while ensuring improved print efficiency.

The LED lights will alert for any manual attention required by the printer. The leveling of print bed and nozzle is such simpler i.e. it is made automatic by the presence of capacitive sensor, so that the build plate adhesion is improved with accurate print bed and nozzle leveling. Another interesting feature is ultimate app which gives you complete freedom of controlling your print job and printer right from your smart phone or tablet. The cooling effect of build plate and the printer is employed with two radial fans and fan shrouds by creating increased pressure build up and thus forming way for improved airflow.

Therefore, higher quality bridging, faster print process, smoother surfaces, and optimal cooling are guaranteed. The weight of the build plate is reduced in order to reduce the vibrations to avoid affecting the print quality. The inbuilt camera helps you have eye on your printer and print job all the time anywhere. You are offered with flexibility of print using different material with enhanced build plate adhesion and the material-matching swappable print cores decreases your maintenance task. The build volume offered for you is 215 x 215 x 200 mm. You can switch between or select the menu options in the control panel by rotating and/or pushing the button.

Filament and Connectivity

The connectivity options you have with ultimaker 3 are Wi-Fi, USB and Ethernet connections, and so now you can send your print jobs without the need for wired connection while not compromising the flexibility of wired connection. The material types you can use with this 3D printer are Nylon, PLA, ABS, CPE, and PVA. You can change, load and unload materials and print core with the Material/Print Core menu option.

Customer Care

The customer services offered by them are ultimate i.e. the technical support are provided for lifetime and the service staffs are completely trained and certified to ensure appropriate service. The parts and materials are always ensured to be available in stock. The technical support can be requested through email, phone and the support materials are available online.
