The original dodecahedral kinetic sculpture by Stijn van der Linden a.k.a. Virtox.
Made of five nested dodecahedra, each one is limited to rotate around its own axis.
It was printed with dual extrusion on an Ultimaker 3 with water-soluble PVA support material.

This Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) was made by @Valcrow for the new Ultimaker 2+. To make it yourself you can visit YouMagine to download the files and our Wind Turbine print tutorial for print/assembly tips.
The Ultimaker 2+ desktop 3D printer is based on the award-winning Ultimaker 2 and features all of our latest innovations and understanding of 3D printing.
This dual color electric drill prototype was designed to show the capabilities and accuracy of dual extrusion on the Ultimaker 3. This model was printed in dual color PLA. It can also be printed with ABS or one of our other industrial-grade materials for different characteristics.
Flowalistik created this awesome low-poly character set for us. We're happy to share them publicly so everyone can enjoy!

At the recent 3dexpo event the judges chose the infamous Make: rook as the model for their Clash of the 3D Printers competition. All competitors printed this model, normally used as a torture test for SLA resin printers, at 50mm height without supports. The Ultimaker 2 Go and Ultimaker 2+ won first and second prize in the competition, proving that they're up to printing complex models originally designed for SLA printers. Congratulations to winning competitors 3D Print Station and 3DWiser!
The final printer ranking at the Clash of the 3D Printers was:
1. Ultimaker 2 Go
2. Ultimaker 2+
3. Felix Pro 1
4. Prusa i3 MK2
5/6. Prusa i3 MK2
5/6. Makerbot Replicator 2
Makerbot Replicator 5th
UP Plus 2

With 3D printing you can test form, fit and function at every stage, accurately creating the end product’s performance – giving you confidence in your final design. This car engine manifold was modelled by Valcrow and demonstrates how the support structures automatically generated by the Cura 3D slicer let you print complicated models.

This custom camera loupe is designed by @Valcrow from Redicubricks. It was a perfect fit for our camera team during an upcoming Ultimaker video!
