The Ultimaker 3 Extended is the larger version of the Ultimaker 3, launched in October 2016. It shares the same features and technologies as the 3, but boosts the build volume to 197 mm x 215 mm x 300 mm when using dual extrusion, or 215 mm x 215 mm x 300 mm when using single extrusion, so that you can create taller prints.
Industrial-Grade 3D Printing
If you are looking for an industrial-grade 3D printer, look no further. The Ultimaker 3 Extended is a huge upgrade over the Ultimaker 2+ Extended, with several new and powerful features that ensure a more accurate and consistent 3D printing experience.
With the ability to print at a layer height of 20-microns, and a new extrusion system that can reach temperatures of up to 280 ˚C, you can 3D print super-detailed and super-complex models from Nylon, CPE, ABS and PLA, and 3D print water-soluble supports from PVA for all overhangs and weak spots, to significantly improve part quality. You can 3D print two materials at once (dual extrusion) and create sophisticated models, or you can print a single filament (single extrusion) for simpler models where a faster print speed is desired.
Outstanding Features and Technology
The Ultimaker 3 Extended gets automatic bed levelling, so you don’t have to manually adjust the z height for parts, and there’s even an NFC chip built into the spool holder which communicates with NFC-equipped Ultimaker Spools and automatically adjusts the printer settings to suit. Add to that automatic Wi-Fi, USB connectivity and an Ethernet port, and you have one of the smartest 3D printers on the market.
The 3 Extended also has an on-board camera, so that you can monitor the printing process remotely. However, the stand-out feature of the Ultimaker 3 is undoubtedly the new swappable core system, which allows you to quickly and easily swap out filament cores to increase uptime by reducing the risk of clogging for a more reliable 3D printing experience.
Ultimaker started life out in the Netherlands. Founded in 2011, they are an old head relatively speaking in the world of desktop 3D printing. Their quest to innovate and create the best 3D printers has led to this point: they are now one of the world’s leading desktop 3D printer manufacturers in both uptake and reputation.
The popularity of the Ultimaker brand is also down to proven use cases. Industries benefitting from an Ultimaker include aerospace, architecture, art, automotive, engineering, fashion, jewellery, manufacturing, medicine, product design and education. Ultimaker is also one of the few brands with a committed DIY fan base. These ‘Makers’ are ambassadors who live and breathe everything Ultimaker. You can find them on forums.
Wherever reliability, uptime and quality is desired in a desktop 3D printer, we recommend Ultimaker because we know they work. With an Ultimaker you can make accurate, industrial-grade parts, time and again.
We are an authorised Ultimaker reseller which means we are authorised by Ultimaker to sell and support their 3D printers and all related products. We sell the whole Ultimaker 3D printer range and can recommend the best model for your use case. We also sell supplies, materials, and spares to keep your 3D printing game strong.
