Features (Watch features video)

The print head

  1. Dual extrusion: 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.
  2. Swappable print cores: Faster print core changes mean higher uptime and easier maintenance. Your Ultimaker 3 comes with print cores for build (AA) and water-soluble support (BB) materials.
  3. New optimized cooling: Ultimaker 3 has a powerful, low-noise fan system. Featuring two new radial fans and fan shrouds, it creates greater pressure build-up for an improved airflow. This ensures better cooling, high quality bridging, faster print runs and smooth print surfaces.
  4. LED status indicators:  Print core LED lights ensure an optimized 3D printing experience by alerting if any user interaction is needed.  Watch features video


Superior 3D printing experience

  1. Optimized Ultimaker Cura material profiles: Extensively tested preconfigured Ultimaker Cura profiles make for a smoother, more seamless 3D printing experience by automatically adjusting the necessary settings for each material and print core. Produce consistent, quality results with every print.
  2. Material recognition with NFC scanner: Built-in material recognition system ensures your 3D printer is primed and ready for the task. Ultimaker 3 detects and identifies the material on the spool holder and checks the correspondence of a filament and print core type being used.
  3. EEPROM print core chip: The EEPROM chip in the print core memorizes the size and type of your nozzle, notifies you in case of misuse and, as a result, helps achieve higher print success rates.

The heated build plate


  1. Active leveling: The capacitive sensor in the print head measures distances between the print bed and the nozzle, and the tilt angle is compensated by adjusting the z height in the first layers. The result? More accurate leveling and improved build plate adhesion
  2. New refined design: The Ultimaker 3 features a build plate that’s lighter and stiffer, which reduces vibrations and helps produce an unrivalled print quality. The removable glass plate makes it easy to access your prints
  3. Heated glass build plate: Thanks to the heated glass build plate, you can print using many different materials and with improved build plate adhesion.

Simple controls and connectivity

  1. USB port: Enjoy standalone printing using a USB stick (16GB included).
  2. Wi-Fi / LAN: Send your print project quickly and easily to your Ultimaker 3 via Ultimaker Cura.
  3. Live camera: Monitor every stage of your 3D printing project remotely by simply connecting to your Ultimaker 3’s Wi-Fi network. The result? Optimized workflow and exceptional control.


  1. Ultimaker materials: Print with a wide range of materials, including Nylon, PLA, ABS, CPE, CPE+, TPU 95A, PC, PP, PVA, and Breakaway. Combine two build materials for dual-color 3D prints or achieve state-of-the-art complexity with build and water-soluble support material combinations (Nylon/PVA, PLA/PVA, and CPE/PVA).
  2. NFC material scanner: Your Ultimaker 3 identifies the material that is being loaded and checks the correspondence of the filament and print core type you are using. Coupled with our extensively tested preconfigured material profiles in Ultimaker Cura, the Ultimaker 3’s material recognition system ensures your 3D printer is set for the highest-quality results.
  3. Open filament system: With our integrated ecosystem of reliable hardware, extensively tested materials and cutting-edge software, you are guaranteed the highest level results and optimized 3D printing experience. Yet, thanks to the Ultimaker open filament system, you have the freedom to try and test other types of existing filaments or manufacture your custom solution that would match your specific requirements.
