New for 2019, the Ultimaker S3 can print an enormous range of materials including composites, engineering plastics and nylon.
It is engineered to print continuously, with maximum uptime, reliably. No other Ultimaker 3D printer packs so much capability into such a cost-effective package.
3D printing has long been synonymous with fabricating exceptional parts and models – but repeatability has always been a challenge. Not anymore.
Ultimaker has perfected first layer adhesion with the S3, which scans the build plate and corrects any microscopic discrepancies within the Z-height. The result is a perfect first layer for perfect adhesion and stability on the build plate.
Compact but powerful
The S3’s build area is 230 x 190 x 200 mm which is down on the S5, but you have to remember this is a more compact 3D printer. It has an assembled size of 394 x 489 x 637 mm, which is around the same size as a laser jet. In other words, it’ll fit on a computer desk quite comfortably - filament tubes and all.
The S3 benefits from dual extrusion technology with Ultimaker swappable print cores, which enable you to easily switch between abrasive, non-abrasive and low and high-temp materials. The S3 is compatible with the complete Ultimaker material library, including TPU 95A, CPE+, Tough PLA, PVA and Breakaway.
You can also print with glass and carbon fibre composites. All you need is the Print Core CC Red and you’ll be able to print up to 10kg of carbon fibre.
Overall, the S3 is an outstanding 3D printer. It’s suitable for any application -- industrial, educational and all. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
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.
