 Press Releases

  • Industry’s First Desktop Printer That Makes Professional 3D Printing Truly Accessible

    NEW YORK- (October 18, 2016) – Ultimaker, the leading open source 3D printer manufacturer,

    announced today the global availability of the next generation of its 3D printing product line, the

    Ultimaker 3. With Ultimaker 3’s advanced capability to print complex geometries using industrial-grade

    materials right from the desktop, users gain freedom of design never before accessible in the

    professional environment. Fully integrated hardware, software and materials configuration, as well as

    full settings alignment, ensures both efficient workflow and precision print results. With Ultimaker 3,

    professional and reliable 3D printing is now available for multiple users across the organization.

    Ultimaker 3 provides:

    ● An unlimited number of geometry options thanks to its new dual extrusion system that allows

    the freedom to produce more complex outputs in a full range of engineering materials, including

    Nylon and dissolvable PVA, and two color. The impact: design is not constrained, opening up

    opportunities for experimentation, creativity and innovation.

    ● High uptime and maximum performance due to material-matching print core design, enabling

    users to switch cores optimized for Ultimaker’s own industry-grade materials in seconds. The

    impact: repeatable, high quality output is achieved in a low-maintenance environment.

    ● Enhanced printer automation that eliminates the guesswork from printing prep. Smart material

    detection through NFC technology, as well as active bed leveling, tunes Ultimaker 3 to the best

    possible settings for specific materials and corrects level errors. The impact: anyone, regardless

    of their role within the business or skillset, can produce a consistently perfect model every time.

    • Advanced connectivity through integrated Wi-Fi capabilities, in addition to USB and Ethernet

    connections, results in seamless access across the organization. A built-in camera, connected to

    open source software CURA allows for remote monitoring of print output.

    The impact: organizations achieve efficient workflow and access across users.

    “Our team is constantly working to evolve the 3D printing market, and the Ultimaker 3 represents three

    years of development with the goal of delivering a product that serves the needs of demanding

    businesses,” said Jos Burger, CEO of Ultimaker. “3D printers have historically been tapped by businesses

    for straight-forward prototyping and short run production. The extended capabilities of the Ultimaker 3

    introduce a wide variety of new applications and we’re excited to get them into the hands of

    professionals that can capitalize on the benefits of 3D printing across a variety of industries.”

    The Ultimaker 3 is available today through Ultimaker’s network of global partners and the printer starts

    at $3,495.

    “Additive manufacturing is a key aspect of Jabil’s digital manufacturing strategy, positively impacting

    numerous areas within our business including the acceleration of product development and affording

    greater supply chain flexibility,” said John Dulchinos, Vice President of Digital Manufacturing at Jabil

    Circuit. “Ultimaker has proven a valuable partner in collaborating with our team to bring solutions to

    market that meet the needs of our factories and customers.”

  • Agenda Explores the Expanding Role of 3D Printing as a Digital Fabrication Tool for College Faculty, K-12 Educators, and Informal Education Leaders

     

    Durham, North Carolina - February 2, 2017 - Registration is now open for the first national academic 3D printing conference, Construct3D 2017, which will bring together leaders and educators in the digital fabrication discipline of 3D printing for a comprehensive overview of this rapidly expanding area of research and development. The conference is sponsored by Ultimaker, a leading open source 3D printer manufacturer, and Autodesk, Inc., the software provider for people who make things, and will be hosted at Duke University from May 5-7, 2017 at the JB Duke Hotel.

     

    The Construct3D 2017 conference will be a meeting of educators, pioneers, and industry leaders who actively use 3D printing in their work, with the aim of highlighting and cultivating the role of this technology as it contributes to academic and research achievement. As the most recent element of digital fabrication to be widely adopted across the full range of educational contexts, 3D printing offers unprecedented opportunities for education pioneers to break new ground and help shape the trajectory of implementation and intentions around this technology for the coming years. The aim of this conference is to raise the level of discourse and deepen the value of this technology for all of those engaged in this practice through a series of keynote talks, educator and technology innovator presentations, context-specific track activities, and hands-on workshops and demonstrations.

     

    During this debut year, the conference will include a superstar lineup of keynote presentations, one for each of the three educator contexts represented by the event:

    • Skylar Tibbits, 4D printing innovator, founder and co-director of MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab will present the University Educator Keynote.

    • Dale Dougherty, the Maker Movement’s most passionate and warm-hearted proponent, instigator of both MAKE: Magazine and wide global network of Maker Faire events, founder and CEO of Maker Media, Inc., will present the Informal Educator Keynote.

    • The K-12 Educator Keynote will be co-presented by Albemarle County Public School’s dynamic Pam Moran, Superintendent, and Ira Socol, Director for Innovation and Learning Technology.

     

    “We believe that there has never been a better time to bring together thought leaders and practitioners in this evolving field under one roof to share stories of successes and challenges with this technology,” said Conference Co-Chair Chip Bobbert, digital media engineer at event founding sponsor Duke University.

     

    Over the next few decades, the entire digital fabrication field is expected to shift into a central position in academic and educational curriculum. Advances in 3D printing in the last year alone have brought digital practices around 3D making and fabrication into more classrooms and instructional contexts than ever before. However, many of these developments have only been recognized locally or within particular disciplines. Construct3D 2017 aims to exchange these advances beyond the silo, to accelerate adoption and exploration of this important area.

     

    “Construct3D 2017 offers an unprecedented opportunity for university faculty, K-12 educators, and informal education leaders to learn from each other and share best practices, which means that everyone attending will leave with new skills, new perspectives and deeper connections to other practitioners throughout North America,” said Conference Co-Chair Lizabeth Arum, educational strategist at event founding sponsor Ultimaker.
