Ultimaker, a global leader in desktop 3D printing, unveiled the Ultimaker S3, the latest addition to its S-line product family of 3D printers. The Ultimaker S3 offers turnkey production capacity so that anyone can achieve high-quality results. The affordable desktop 3D printer has composite-ready performance and an efficiently small footprint to fit easily on any desktop.
The Ultimaker S3 seamlessly integrates into Ultimaker’s open ecosystem. The feeder wheels are made of hardened steel and together with the CC print core, users can print with almost any 2.85 mm filament – such as PLA, ABS, Nylon, third-party materials and abrasive materials. Engineers can design, test, and produce models and custom end-use parts with the widest range of materials for their manufacturing needs. The wider nozzle coverage ensures that no space is wasted, which offers an increased build-volume-to-size ratio.
The Ultimaker S3 system’s touch interface and predefined print settings facilitate precise 3D printing as part of any workflow. It has a heated build plate, advanced active levelling, a stiffer build platform and accurate stepper drivers. The dual filament flow sensors detect empty filament spools and will automatically pause print jobs so that users can replenish materials and keep the machine running seamlessly.
The Ultimaker S3 costs $4,395 USD and is available through Ultimaker’s network of global partners.
