Affordable, professional-grade 3D printer brings in-house production to any desk
SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 25 September 2019 - Ultimaker, the global leader in desktop 3D printing, today
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. Packed with the latest technology, the Ultimaker S3 offers disruptive businesses a cost-effective way to
adopt and drive in-house 3D printing.
The new 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 contains an award-winning touch interface and predefined print
settings that facilitate more precise 3D printing as part
of any workflow. A heated build plate, advanced active levelling, a
stiffer build platform and accurate stepper drivers result in the highest print
quality of a machine in this form factor. The dual filament flow sensors can detect empty filament spools in the Ultimaker S3 and will automatically pause print jobs so that users can
immediately replenish materials and keep the machine running seamlessly.
"I am proud that we managed to pack all the
latest breakthrough technology into a machine with the form-factor of the Ultimaker 3," said Paul Heiden, Senior Vice President Product
Management at Ultimaker.
"The accessible Ultimaker S3 is
capable of reliably manufacturing smaller parts and models at a
price-point that removes the barrier to entry for entrepreneurs and SMEs to
adopt 3D printing. Now, anyone who wants to start leveraging Ultimaker's flexible, powerful 3D printing system can do
so and make full use of all materials with print
profiles available in the Marketplace in Ultimaker Cura. We passionately believe that the ability for more
businesses to affordably disrupt markets with rapidly developed, locally
manufactured parts and models, makes the Ultimaker S3 a no-brainer. And we're excited to see how our customers take
advantage of this new opportunity."
The Ultimaker S3 is
available starting September 24, 2019 through Ultimaker's network of global
partners. For more information and local pricing, please visit our product page or read our blog post.
