Professional, easy-to-use filament-based 3D printers with access to a wide-range of materials.

Founded in 2011 with the goal of increasing access to additive manufacturing solutions, Ultimaker offer great value ‘entry-level’ printers that are simple to use but produce high quality parts. Their printers can make use of a wide variety of materials; the open filament system allows for printing with any 2.85mm filament. Pre-saved print profiles can also be downloaded from the Ultimaker Digital Market to improve the user experience.

Ultimaker’s printers are augmented by proprietary software that create an ecosystem designed to boost your 3D manufacturing productivity. Printers like the Ultimaker S5 benefit from the Ultimaker Digital Factory and the Digital Marketplace – both are cloud based software platforms that ensure users can remotely queue print jobs, create company-wide libraries of approved parts ready to print, as well as analyse detailed analytics.

The Digital Factory seamlessly integrates with Ultimaker’s Cura software to enable users to prepare CAD designs quickly and effectively. Cura is Ultimaker’s market-leading open source splicing software that works with all of Ultimaker’s range. Users can utilise recommended printing profiles that have been tried and tested, or they can select ‘custom mode’ and enjoy granular control with over 400 settings to tweak to get the perfect print.

The S5 is Ultimaker’s flagship 3D printer – and for good reason. Boasting a composite-ready dual extrusion system that benefits from advanced automatic bed levelling and an award-winning touch interface, the Ultimaker S5 combines useability with quality. Take advantage of its compatibility, too – over 200 materials can be used with the S5 thanks to its open filament system. Its build volume is a modest 330 x 240 x 300mm, lending itself to being the perfect desktop 3D printer.

FAQ’S

Commonly asked questions about Ultimaker

On the back of the printer where the power cable plugs in you will find a serial number beginning with “BPP” followed by 2 sets of 6 digits
Consumables are expected to undergo normal wear and tear with use and are therefore not covered under warranty. For Ultimaker they include: Print Cores, Hot ends, Silicon nozzle covers, Class plates, Bowden tubes (coupling collets and clamp clips), glue sticks, machine oil, grease and the filter on the Air Manager
Yes, your warranty can be extended from 12 months to 36 months.

Ultimaker have the following filaments available in their range; ABS, Breakaway support, CPE, CPE+, Nylon, PC, PETG, PLA, PP, PVA support, Tough PLA and TPU 95A
You will need a BB core to print with PVA support filament and where possible we advise storing the PVA in a humidity-controlled environment such as the material station (compatible with the S5) due to the hygroscopic nature of the material. The PVA removal station also has the advantage of speeding up and automating the removal process.
