Ultimaker 3D printers are designed and built for fused filament fabrication with Ultimaker materials mainly within a commercial, professional, or educational environment. The mixture of precision and speed makes Ultimaker 3D printers very suitable for concept models, functional prototypes, and small series production.
Using dual extrusion technology, the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended allow you to print with two colors or combine build and support materials for creating complex, detailed prints.
Although Ultimaker has achieved a very high standard in the reproduction of 3D models with the use of Ultimaker Cura, the user remains responsible to qualify and validate the application of the printed object for its intended use. This is especially critical for applications in strictly regulated areas like medical devices and aeronautics.
While being an open material platform, the best results will be achieved with Ultimaker materials, as effort has been made to match material properties with machine settings. When working with third-party materials, the user is responsible for selecting the correct profile settings.
