Integrated 3D printing solution
– for unmatched 3D printing experience
Send prints quickly and easily to your Ultimaker 3
via Wi-Fi, LAN or our Ultimaker 3 app, then monitor
progress via the live camera. Integrated Wi-Fi lets
multiple users control and monitor prints, and LAN
and USB connection ensures uninterrupted printing
around the clock.
The Ultimaker 3 features a cohesive system, seamlessly
blending hardware, software, and materials. This improves
the workflow efficiency and print quality. The NFC scanner
lets the printer know which materials are loaded. Via the
network, Cura is aware of the print cores and materials
being used, and since Cura comes with optimized printing
profiles for each combination, it delivers impressive
results with minimal hassle.

Engineered for
setup and reliability
Active leveling
Dual geared feeders
The print head’s capacitive sensor measures distances
between the nozzle and the build plate, then the tilt
angle is compensated by adjusting the z height in the
first layers. This ensures improved build plate adhesion
and reliable remote 3D printing experience.
Geared feeders mean more force on the filament, and no
heat exposure from the motors. Change materials easily,
then choose the correct pressure in an instant, using
the lever to manually insert or remove a filament. This
improved control means more reliable, successful results.
Heated glass plate
Powerful print head cooling system
Ultimaker 3’s build plate is stiffer and lighter, reducing
vibrations and resulting in a better-quality print. The
glass plate is removable for easy print access, and it’s
also heated, which means you can print with a wider
range of materials.
Ultimaker’s triple fan system, with two new radial fans
and fan shrouds, creates more pressure and better
airflow. The result? Efficient cooling, higher-quality
bridging, smoother surfaces and faster print runs.
Automatic nozzle lifting system
Ultimaker 3’s unique auto-nozzle lifting system ensures a
smooth, professional finish with every print.

Cohesive 3D printing
solution for superior
3D printing experience
Ultimaker 3’s integrated system of hardware, software and materials
is designed to ensure unrivaled quality. Our open source slicing
software (Cura) features extensively tested preconfigured profiles,
automatically adjusting the settings for your materials and print
cores. It also recognizes the print core used, ensuring easier setup
and smoother, quicker print results.
Optimized Cura profiles
EEPROM print core chip
Cura features a number of thoroughly-tested,
preconfigured material profiles. It automatically
recognizes the material used, making the necessary
setting adjustments to ensure a consistent,
high-quality print.
The print core’s EEPROM chip memorizes the size and
type of your nozzle, alerting you in the event of misuse.
This means less errors and greater printing success.
NFC material scanner
The Ultimaker 3 detects and identifies your chosen
material, then checks the corresponding filament
and print core type being used. This ensures your
printer is primed and ready for action.
Remote 3D printing

With the Ultimaker 3, you can choose from a huge range
of materials. For advanced dual-color printing, simply
combine two build materials, or achieve astonishing
complexity with build / water-soluble support material
combinations (such as Nylon and PVA or PLA and PVA).
Through a seamless blend of hardware, software, and
materials, you can enjoy remarkable results, and a
simpler, more enjoyable printing experience. Our open
filament system makes it possible to test existing or
custom-formulated materials with ease.
Ultimaker materials
Ultimaker 3’s wide range of materials include PLA,
Nylon, CPE, ABS and PVA. In the future, this will be
extended to include CPE+, PC, TPU 95A, and other
materials. Achieve unrivaled complexity with build
and water-soluble support material combinations,
or create dual-color prints with two build materials
of your choice.
Auto-material recognition
Your printer’s NFC scanner identifies the Ultimaker
material being used, then Cura auto-optimizes the
settings based on the filament and print core.
Open filament system
Ultimaker doesn’t recognize limits. As a result,
the Ultimaker 3 features an open filament system,
letting you print with any material type. This allows
for greater innovation to help you develop custom
solutions to meet your requirements.
Water-soluble PVA:
Ultimaker 3’s dual-extrusion system is the most reliable
on the market. Create intricate geometries and complex
designs, then simply remove the supports by resting the
print in water. It’s custom-made for detailed structures
and complex mechanical parts.
Ultimaker’s PVA is fully water-soluble, making it ideal
as a support material for even the most complex Nylon /
PLA models. If you need support for deep internal
cavities, large overhangs or complex geometries, it
performs to perfection.

Select the
perfect build
All Ultimaker materials have been specially selected to deliver top
quality prints. The preconfigured Cura profiles ensure optimal
material print settings, intuitively identifying which print core and
material you’re using.
Nylon (polyamide) is a fantastic all-rounder. It offers a
high strength-to-weight ratio, plus excellent durability and
low friction. Handling up to 176˚F, it’s a great choice for
functional prototypes, end-use products, and tools.
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) can withstand
temperatures of up to 185˚F. It has great mechanical
properties, making it suitable for complex end-use
products and functional prototypes.
Optimized for Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 2+ series
Optimized for Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 2+ series
PLA (polylactic acid) features good tensile strength
and surface quality, which makes it ideal for creating
high-resolution parts and prototypes that require
aesthetic detail.
CPE (co-polyester) is chemical-resistant and offers great
dimensional stability, tensile and flexural strength, and
it can handle temperatures up to 158°F. Choose CPE for
functional prototypes and mechanical parts.

Global 3D printing
“That is not the only smart feature either, since the
Ultimaker 3 includes automatic bed-leveling, for helping
to prevent and correct any printing mistakes which might
occur along the way. The 3D printer additionally has the
ability to automatically detect the print material you chose
and adjust its settings to fit.”
“…the printer is capable of delivering a wider range of
models made with industrial-grade materials (including
dissolvable material). The impact: users can think
differently and bigger about their designs when using
the Ultimaker 3. They have the freedom to make their
model as complex as they’d like.”
Luke Dormehl
Daniel O’Connor
“The Ultimaker 3 is a class act — a very solid 3D printer
that can produce excellent-quality 3D prints. It’s also
easy to set up and print with, supports a lot of materials
and has flexible, easy-to-use software. New features,
such as the dual material support and camera for
monitoring prints in progress, are welcome additions
that increase the usability of the printer.”
“To be more attractive and valuable to people like
engineers and designers, the Ultimaker 3 is both more
powerful and automated than its predecessors, with the
idea that a user can upload a design, click print and pick
up a finished part without any issue.”
Michael Molitch-Hou
Richard Baguley
“The guts of the machine have been upgraded …
bringing advanced geometric printing capabilities
and a print bed that actively levels itself to help avoid
common print errors.”
