This easy and reliable 3D printer is designed to provide the best experience in 3D printing. Engineered to perform, this 3D digital printing workhorse is reliable, efficient, and user-friendly and particularly useful for artists, engineers, makers and innovators looking for fast, high quality prints in just about any size or material.
The Ultimaker 2 uses the fused deposition modeling (FDM) method to print by melting a plastic filament that somewhat looks like “weed whapper string” to create the 3D print. This method is also called fused filament fabrication (FFF).
The Ultimaker 2 3D printer produces high-quality product preserving excellent detail. There is a good range of print speed and quality to choose from: quick and low quality, or slow and high quality, as required.
The Ultimaker 2 is a versatile, high-quality 3D printer that can be used for multiple purposes. It can crank out quick, rough prints, or produce smooth, clean prints of excellent quality.
Featuring a .4mm extruder capable of an amazing 20 micron layer resolution, 12 micron XY precision, and 5 micron Z precision, the Ultimaker 2 is the best consumer 3D printer available today.
It has a great compact design, uses standard consumables such as nylon, glass-filled polyamide, epoxy resins, wax, metal filaments and more; and works very quietly with a large print platform for creating relatively large objects in one piece.
