Ultimaker 3 Features Explained – Professional 3D printing made accessible

Articles


This is the Ultimaker 3 a professional yet accessible 3D printer
with reliable dual extrusion swappable print cores and wireless control. Let’s see what makes it the most industrial-grade
desktop 3D printer available. The Ultimaker 3 has a large build volume,
but fits conveniently on your desk. It comes with print cores for
build and support materials. There’s a customized nozzle geometry per material
– which means reduced risk of clogging and a more reliable 3D printing experience. Its print core PCB ensures a more accurate
temperature reading and superior print quality. The Ultimaker 3 can print at temperatures
as high as 280 degrees Celcius. Fast print core changes mean higher uptime
and easier maintenance. Print core LED lights intuitively notify you
if any user interaction is required. For easy print removal, or to clean the glass plate,
simply open the clamps and remove the plate. Leveling the build plate is effortless. When you use it for the first time simply set the right height by turning a knob
while using the Ultimaker calibration card. After that, the Ultimaker 3’s
active leveling does it automatically. The capacitive sensor in the print head measures
the distance between the build plate and the nozzle. When starting a print, the offset is compensated
by adjusting the z height in the first layers. This results in more accurate leveling, improved
build plate adhesion and optimized print quality. Preconfigured Cura profiles provide you
with optimal print settings per material and intuitively recognize which print core
and material you’re using. Ultimaker’s range of materials are formulated
to achieve superior print results and the open filament system lets you
experiment with all kinds of additional materials. To bring your 3D model to life, you’ll need to prepare
it for print using Cura – our free slicer software. You can either stick with the pre-set
or tinker with the advanced settings. Through standalone printing, you can print directly
from your PC or laptop via WiFi or LAN connection. Alternatively, you can load the G-code files on
a USB drive that slots into the Ultimaker 3. The control panel lets you make
any adjustments during the print. The Ultimaker 3 is the most reliable
dual extrusion printer on the market. Combine two build materials
for dual-color 3D prints or achieve state-of-the-art complexity
with build and water soluble support materials. This allows you to approach
your design process in a completely new way and create astoundingly complex designs. Ultimaker 3’s unique nozzle lifting system ensures
that there’s no nozzle collision while printing and no problematic oozing. The powerful geared feeders ensure
more reliable results, and superior print quality. The Ultimaker 3 features a build plate
that’s lighter and stiffer which reduces vibrations
and produces an unrivalled print quality. Thanks to the heated glass build plate you can print using many different materials
and with improved build plate adhesion. Ultimaker 3 has a powerful triple fan system. Featuring two new radial fans and fan shrouds it creates greater pressure build-up
for improved airflow. This means better cooling, high quality bridging,
faster print times and smooth print surfaces. With the live camera, you can monitor every stage
of your 3D printing project remotely simply by connecting to WiFi. The Ultimaker 3 has a large
layer resolution range of up to 20 micron which allows for remarkably detailed prints
or super-fast prototypes. Printing with PVA and PLA allows
complex designs to be printed in place without any post-printing assembly. PVA can also be printed in
dual extrusion with Ultimaker Nylon an engineering material that’s ideal for
exceptionally strong functional prototypes. Using two build materials, you can also create
dual color prints for more realistic concept models. The Ultimaker 3 comes with
free lifetime technical support, and warranty provided by certified support experts worldwide. When you put it all together, the Ultimaker 3 is the
most industrial-grade desktop 3D printer on the market. With the Ultimaker 3,
professional 3D printing is made accessible.
