NEW PRODUCT – Ultimaker 2 – 3D Printer


NEW PRODUCT – Ultimaker 2 – 3D Printer

The Ultimaker 2 is one of our favorite 3D printers on the market. It’s a well-built open-source compact machine with an excellent UX. Every inch of the Ultimaker 2 is designed to create the most effortless and reliable 3D printing experience ever!

The ingenious print head silently and precisely maps out your creation to an accuracy of 20 microns. That means that print lines are barely perceivable creating a really smooth finish. And with its heated print bed and highly efficient dual fans, the Ultimaker 2 even takes overhangs and bridging in its stride.


Ultimaker also created Cura, the open-source software that most other manufacturers use, so the printer harmonizes excellently with the software without any tinkering. And we love Ultimaker’s active software dev. and their large online community.

The Ultimaker 2 works with all of our 1.75mm PLA and ABS filaments but NOTE! The Ultimaker 2 does NOT work with Ninjaflex!

  1. Is it really set up for 1.75mm filament? According to the Ultimaker web site, they spec it for 3 mm (2.85mm) filament.

  2. Hi, not out of the box

    the linked forum on the product page (https://ultimaker.com/en/community/view/6739-175mm-filament-on-ultimaker-2?page=1) has the settings for the software and ptfe tube needed to work with 1.75mm. The tube is available here: http://www.geeetech.com/budaschnozzle-20-ptfe-tube-for-1753mm-filament-p-787.html

    and then change the diameter size in cura or any slicing software.
