3D print complex parts with ease

Features summary

The Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended deliver an incredibly reliable 3D printing experience. Their market-leading dual extrusion system, automatic build plate leveling, NFC spool recognition, and hot-swappable print cores make it easy to 3D print complex geometries with high uptime and repeatability.

  • Dual extrusion build volume: up to 197 x 215 x 300 mm (7.8 x 8.5 x 11.8 inches)
  • Up to 20 micron (0.001 inch) layer resolution
  • Up to 280 °C nozzle temperature
  • Open filament system – print with any 2.85 mm material
  • Award-winning performance according to 3D Hubs, All3DP, Tom's Guide, and more
  • Ultimaker-3-desktop-3D-printer-dual-extrusion

    Deep integration with your workflow

    Wi-Fi, LAN, and NFC connectivity means the Ultimaker 3 fits seamlessly into your workflow:

  • The 3D printer automatically recognizes which materials and print cores are loaded and communicates the setup to Ultimaker Cura
  • Our free slicing software then loads optimized, predefined print settings for those materials (hundreds more tested profiles are available from the Ultimaker Marketplace)
  • This makes it possible to go from CAD to starting a print in a few clicks
  • Then track print progress via Ultimaker Connect and printer's built-in camera
  • Ultimaker 3 connectivity means seamless integration with the 3D printing workflow

    Market-leading dual extrusion

    Combine build materials with water-soluble support to create complex mechanical parts and intricate surfaces – or choose to print with two colors. Ultimaker 3 has a unique auto nozzle-lifting system that ensures a smooth, professional finish with every print, giving you complete design freedom.

    Hot-swappable print cores

    Quicker print core changes mean higher uptime and easier material switching. The Ultimaker 3 ships with two 0.4 mm AA print cores for build materials and Ultimaker Breakaway, and one 0.4 mm BB print core for water-soluble Ultimaker PVA. These are automatically recognized by your printer and in Ultimaker Cura. They feature LED lights to clearly alert you if any interaction is needed..

    Other AA print cores are also available:

  • 0.25 mm for detailed prints
  • 0.8 mm for faster prints
  • Designer swapping the print cores in an Ultimaker 3

    Automatically perfect first-layer adhesion

    Before every print, the capacitive print head sensor probes the removable heated built plate at multiple points to find microscopic variations in its topology. The tilt angle is then compensated by adjusting the Z-height in the first layers. The result? More accurate leveling and improved build plate adhesion.
