Adafruit are now stocking the new Ultimaker 3 professional 3D printer which was launched late last year and is now available to purchase for $3,750 and comes complete with spools of PLA and PVA 3D printer filament to make sure you are up and running printing your designs straight from the box.
The Ultimaker 3 is available in two version offering either a 215 x 215 x 200 mm build volume of the smaller Ultimaker 3 or a larger 215 x 215 x 300 mm build volume on the Ultimaker 3 Extended.
Ultimaker 3 features include :
• An unlimited number of geometry options thanks to its new dual extrusion system that allows the freedom to produce more complex outputs in a full range of engineering materials, including Nylon and dissolvable PVA, and two color. The impact: design is not constrained, opening up opportunities for experimentation, creativity and innovation.
• High uptime and maximum performance due to material-matching print core design, enabling users to switch cores optimized for Ultimaker’s own industrial-grade materials in seconds. The impact: repeatable, high-quality output is achieved in a low-maintenance environment.
• Enhanced printer automation that eliminates the guesswork from printing prep. Smart material detection through NFC technology, as well as active bed leveling, tunes Ultimaker 3 to the best possible settings for specific materials and corrects level errors. The impact: anyone, regardless of their role within the business or skillset, can produce a consistently perfect model every time.
• Advanced connectivity through integrated Wi-Fi capabilities, in addition to USB and Ethernet connections, results in seamless access across the organization. A built-in camera, connected to open source software CURA allows for remote monitoring of print output. The impact: organizations achieve efficient workflow and access across users.
Combine build and water-soluble support materials to create complex mechanical parts and intricate surfaces or choose to print with two colors. Ultimaker 3’s unique auto nozzle-lifting system ensures a smooth, professional finish with every print.
