3D-printing market suddenly buried in a certain limit development and recently does not offer users any tangible new products, with the exception of biomedical technology where 3D-press developing very rapidly. Modern consumer model of 3D-printers are quite limited in scope, including the number of materials available for printing. Typically, the printer can print only one polymer, and few can offer simultaneous print two different materials to create a more interesting items. Ultimaker 3 can make a revolution in the market as one of the first to offer a real solution to this problem thanks to two separate extruders.

It should be noted immediately that Ultimaker 3 the cost is $ 3495, which leaves him subject of professional activity. The material is supplied separately or simultaneously from two nozzles that are mounted on one rolling tray. The most obvious option of using the printer – the creation of complex structures with a primary water-soluble material with a skeleton application to recycled material of nylon, which later hardens and gets rid of the frame with a simple water


According to some simple but very useful features have been implemented compared to its predecessors in Ultimaker 3. For example, the indicator system for indicating the temperature of the nozzle and prevents the touch of the hot device. The device also supports connection and transfer files over Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB, or NFC.

Each extruder can print objects in the size 215 x 215 x 200 mm, at a joint press finite object size will be 197 x 215 x 200 mm. The enhanced version Ultimaker 3 Extended chamber dimensions allow you to print objects with dimensions of 197 x 215 x 300 mm. Curiously, the previous model Ultimaker 2+ printers and 2 Extended + also will be available for $ 2499 and $ 2999, respectively.
