Ultimaker 3D printers are designed and built for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) for various high-quality plastics like PLA, ABS, and CPE within a commercial or educational environment.

Because the Ultimaker Original is delivered as a DIY kit, it is very suitable for education and teaching about 3D printing. By assembling the printer, users gain a good understanding of how the components work. The Ultimaker Original is ideal for tweaking and optimizing hardware components and their alignment. Furthermore, the Ultimaker Original can easily be upgraded and improved, either by using Ultimaker's official upgrade kits or by installing self-built (or 3D printed) parts.

The Ultimaker Original can achieve repeatable and high-quality 3D prints with the use of Ultimaker Cura. The user remains responsible to qualify and validate the application of the printed object for its intended use.

The best results will be achieved with Ultimaker filament. However, Ultimaker has an open filament platform, and third-party materials can be used as well. Effort has been made in Ultimaker Cura in order to match material properties with machine settings, but the user is responsible for selecting the correct profile settings when working with third-party materials.
