Ultimaker Print Cores help you make the most material combinations, to give you geometric freedom, the ability to print in two colours, and to improve workflow efficiency.
The Ultimaker Print Core BB is for support material (PVA). It features an auto-nozzle lifting system for seamless swap-outs and reliable dual-extrusion printing.
Because the Ultimaker Print Core BB only supports PVA, you can make do with only having one. However, with two or more print cores, you can customise nozzle geometries for different print results. This is beneficial if you want to print a support structure that’s thin or thick. It is also important to consider that Print Cores must be properly maintained to function correctly. If they are not properly maintained (cleaned), then they can fail. If your Print Core BB is failing, then you may need to purchase a new one.
The Ultimaker Print Core BB for sale here is an official Ultimaker product. We recommend that you purchase a back-up BB Core if you rely on your Ultimaker 3 or S5 for everyday 3D printing.
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.
