End of Life policy

On this page, you can find the official Ultimaker end of life policy. This policy describes, in general, the phases which occur after an Ultimaker product has been discontinued. It outlines the responsibilities of Ultimaker in these phases and describes what customers may reasonably expect from Ultimaker regarding service after their Ultimaker product has been officially discontinued.

This End of Life policy applies to all Ultimaker products for which a Discontinuance notice is published after December 1, 2020, unless specifically noted otherwise. Product-specific Discontinuance notices including effective dates can be found in the support section Product lifecycle notices.
