The Ultimaker Advanced 3D Printing Kit will help you to get the most consistent and reliable printing results.
This kit includes the following items:
2x 0.4mm Nozzles;
2x TFM Couplers;
25x Adhesion Sheets;
Here’s what you need to know about them:
You should replace your nozzles when they become clogged, and when they cannot be unclogged through manual extrusion or by utilising the Atomic Method. The nozzles included in the Kit are Ultimaker nozzles; they are direct replacements for your old nozzles.
TFM Couplers can be affected by high temperatures, and over time they may degrade. The Ultimaker Advanced 3D Printing Kit includes x2 TFM Coupler replacements, to reduce downtime. Replacing the Couplers is relatively easy once you remove the Bowden tube.
The adhesion sheets are applied directly over the Ultimaker’s build plate. They promote and improve part-bed adhesion, and they completely replace glue sticks. The sheets are also reusable, and if looked after, each sheet will last through several print cycles.
This is perhaps the best feature of the Ultimaker Advanced 3D Printing Kit. The Door effectively locks in the warmth of the printer from the heated bed, to create a more stable environment for prints. It protects prints from external influences, and can maintain a constant internal temperature of 45°C, to reduce the chance of warping and delamination; we recommend the Door when printing with ABS, CPE+ and PC.
Founded in 2011, Netherlands-based 3D printer manufacturer Ultimaker is one of the main players in the desktop 3D printer market. Ultimaker 3D printers all utilise fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology with the company committed to being open source.
Ultimaker started selling 3D printers in May 2011. Their first printer, the “Ultimaker”, paved the way for all other models that succeeded it. Ultimaker’s current range of desktop-class 3D printers includes the Ultimaker Original+, Ultimaker 2 Go, Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+. The Ultimaker Original+ is a DIY kit for makers who want to hack and tweak their 3D printer. All other models in the Ultimaker range come fully preassembled, ready to be used in engineering, design and educational environments.
Ultimaker is committed to being an open source vendor. One can download and access each printer’s documentation and source files once they become available. This has enabled Ultimaker to innovate and update their line of printers over the years, and their community has had a significant input into the new features that have found their way into Ultimaker’s new 3D printers. For example, the swappable nozzle system and geared feeder motor found in the 2016 ‘Plus’ range of 3D printers are so because of user and community feedback.
