What are the new hardware features of the Ultimaker 3? First, there is the print head. With the Dual extrusion possibility you can combine build and water-soluble support materials to create complex mechanical parts and intricate surfaces. You can also choose to print with 2 colors of the same material. The auto-nozzle lifting system ensures a smooth, professional finish with every print!
Another new item are the print cores. Faster print core changes mean higher uptime and easier maintenance. With every Ultimaker 3 you receive 2 print cores for build (AA) and one print core for support materials (BB). The way these print cores are made ensures lower clogging risks and a more reliable 3D printing experience.
Off course Ultimaker also improved the software. CURA now has extensively tested preconfigured profiles to create a smoother, more seamless 3D printing experience. The brand new NFC scanner is a build-in material recognition system. It ensures your 3D printer is primed and ready for task. The Ultimaker 3 detects and identifies the material on the reel holder and checks the correspondence of a filament and print core being used.The last item is the EEPROM print core chip, which memorizes the size and type of your nozzle, notifies you in case of misuse and, as a result, helps achieve higher print succes rates.
