Ultimaker BB Print Core (0.4mm)


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.

    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.
