Ultimaker are dedicated to finding new ways of improving 3D printing. Recently, they’ve been working hard on extending the range of printable materials, developing an improved version of Cura, and coming up with new ways to enhance your 3D printing experience. You can start taking advantage of these new products and enhancements immediately.
Ultimaker PP: For lightweight, durable prototypes
Ultimaker PP (polypropylene) is a favorite material for engineers and manufacturers across the word. It’s durable, tough, and offers excellent fatigue resistance with low friction. Polypropylene also has excellent chemical, temperature, and electrical resistance. Suitable for producing a broad range of end use products from electrical components to living hinges, Ultimaker PP is the go-to material for creating functional prototypes and end use products. Optimized for both Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 3 series 3D printers.
Ultimaker 3: Supporting new materials and creating new possibilities
Ultimaker now delivers more profiles.
In addition to Ultimaker PP, Ultimaker 3 now supports even a wider range of engineering materials! To ensure professional, reliable results, we have developed and rigorously tested new 3D printing profiles for CPE+, PC, and TPU 95A.
New 0.8 mm Ultimaker print cores.
Would you like to acheive faster 3D printing with more choice between speed and level of detail? Ultimaker 3 print cores come with a new nozzle size to deliver this. You can now choose 0.4 mm print cores for greater detail or 0.8 mm for higher speed.
More confidence with the Ultimaker 3 Advanced 3D Printing Kit
The new Ultimaker 3 Advanced 3D Printing Kit is ideal for printing engineering materials on the Ultimaker 3 series. Achieve better adhesive surface and temperature control, with consistent, quality results.
Introducing Cura 2.6.1 and Firmware 3.7.1
Cura 2.6.1 is now available. There are plenty of new features to discover, such as enhanced support adhesion settings, easier, faster model auto-arrange options, support meshes, extruder buttons and more.
The latest Ultimaker 3 firmware update includes a number of fantastic enhancements and fixes. One of the most significant improvements is an option to restart your latest print directly from the printer, a new print core cleaning procedure and improved material changing procedures.
