Delivering accuracy

and consistency

The Ultimaker 3 Extended shares all the excellent features of the Ultimaker 3, and has an even bigger build volume. It is the newest and most advanced large-format 3D printer created by Ultimaker. It features sophisticated dual extrusion technology and advanced print head design that make it the most reliable dual extrusion 3D printer available.


With its unique auto-nozzle lifting system, professional build and support material combinations, and swappable print cores, users can now achieve complex designs and improved 3D print performance that was previously only available through high-cost industrial rapid prototyping machines. Its powerful dual extrusion technology with dissolvable support enables designers, engineers, and manufacturers to create complex geometries and achieve remarkable design intricacy with ease.


 Ultimaker's focus on making 3D printing as user-friendly as possible has resulted in seamless hardware, software and material integration that enables simple and efficient workflow, as well as maximum machine uptime. Ultimaker 3 is setting the new benchmark for professional desktop 3D printing once again and is making professional 3D printing accessible to everyone.

Main Features

​Swappable print cores:



​Faster print core changes mean higher uptime and easier maintenance. Your Ultimaker 3 comes with 2 x print cores (AA) for build materials, and 1 x print core (BB) for support materials. There’s a customized nozzle geometry per material – ensuring lower clogging risks and a more reliable 3D printing experience


LED status indicators:

Print core LED lights ensure an optimised 3D printing experience by alerting if any user interaction is needed

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 improved airflow. This ensures better cooling, high-quality bridging, faster print runs, and smooth print surfaces.

Superior 3D Printing Experience

Optimised Cura material profiles 



Extensively tested preconfigured 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

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 reel holder and checks the correspondence of a filament and print core type being used

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

Simple Controls and Connectivity

USB port 



Enjoy standalone printing using a USB stick (16GB included)

Wi-Fi / LAN 


Send your print project quickly and easily to your Ultimaker 3 via Cura

Live camera  


Monitor every stage of your 3D printing project remotely by simply connecting to your Ultimaker 3’s Wi-Fi network. The result? Optimised workflow and exceptional control

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

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


​Heated build plate


Thanks to the heated glass build plate, you can print using many different materials and with improved build plate adhesion




Dual geared feeders: Geared feeders exert more force on the filament, and also eliminate heat exposure from the motor. Change your 3D printing materials with ease, select the correct pressure with a push on a button, and use the lever function to manually insert or remove a filament. More control means more successful, reliable and durable 3D print results, without compromise

Industrial Grade Materials



​Ultimaker materials 


Print with a wide range of materials, including Nylon, PLA, ABS, CPE and PVA – with material portfolio due to be expanded with CPE+, PC and TPU 95A in the future. Combine two build materials for dual-colour 3D prints or achieve state-of-the-art complexity with build and water-soluble support material combinations (Nylon/PVA and PLA/PVA)


​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 Cura, the Ultimaker 3’s material recognition system ensures your 3D printer is set for the highest-quality results

​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 optimised 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

*Note on build volume: The X and Y dimensions specified are representative of the maximum size you can print in the X and Y directions. It is not possible to print a cube of the specified build volume as you have to take into account clearances for the four retainer clips of the glass print bed. Other factors/ software settings including the use of prime tower, ooze shield, skirt, and brim will also reduce the overall build volume. Please kindly contact us if you have any questions regarding the build volume.
