Fast, quiet, and accurate 3D printing? The Ultimaker 2+ might be a great choice for you.
Check out our detailed description of the Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer.
Are you looking for a user-friendly 3D printer that allows for silent and detailed 3D prints?
The Ultimaker 2+ might be the device for you.
The Ultimaker 2+ was launched in January 2016 as the successor of the very popular Ultimaker 2, a 3D printer that found its way into thousands of companies, but also living rooms. All around the world.
Ultimaker, a sound Dutch product
A manufacturer is as good as its product, and that means that you can rely on Ultimaker.
The Dutch manufacturer has experienced quite some growth in the past few years and currently employs just a little under 2,000 people worldwide. That is quite a company, especially for the 3D printer market.
The head quarters and the European production line can be found in Geldermalsen, the Netherlands.
Unlike many other manufacturers of 3D printers, Ultimaker does not sell to end-users directly, but uses its authorised reseller network to do this.
The Ultimaker 2+ is a user-friendly 3D printer with many possibilities.
The 3D printer has a fast and easy calibration process, which makes everything much easier for the user. This is something that, unfortunately, is still not common among 3D printers.
The Ultimaker 2+has a build surface of 223 x 223 x 205 mm and a heated bed.
This improves the bonding of the print jobs and allows for printing with numerous materials, such as ABS filament. (industrial plastic)
The Ultimaker 2+ is a versatile 3D printer that can be used with most types of filament.
The materials that are used most often are: PLA filament, ABS filament, and PET filament.
The device can also handle wood filaments, copper filaments, bronze filaments, Flex filaments, and many more.
The completely renewed feeder makes it even easier to change filaments. By applying exactly the right amount of pressure on your filament, you do not only improve your supply, but also the ease of doing it.
After the success of the Olsson block, the Ultimaker 2+ now has the possibility to make exchanging the nozzles even easier. You can choose from 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 en 0.8mm nozzles for more detailed or faster printing.
Since the entire cooling system of the Ultimaker 2+ has been renewed, your prints are cooled perfectly, which allows for a very smooth finish.
Cura comes free with the purchase of the Ultimaker 2.
Cura is Ultimaker's own open source-software.
Cura is currently one of the best known and most used types of slice software and is very user-friendly.
The software can be used on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Uploading prints from the computer to the printer can be done via an SD card. This is also the safest method, since it prevents interruptions during printing.
The Ultimaker 2 is a 3D printer that can be labeled as noiseless; it is so quiet that you can only hear the cooling fan on the extruder (printing head) if the device is printing at low speed.
Therefore, the Ultimer 2+ can be perfectly used in most spaces, even in at the office and at home.
