  1. Today we are thrilled to launch our latest S-series printer. The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers. So what’s new? The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door. The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using glue or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand. The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding. The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements: Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more Curious to see the S7 in action? We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7. It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo. Register here for the Webinar

  4. The merger between Ultimaker and Makerbot is complete! Our new brand, UltiMaker, aims to provide easy-to-use and accessible 3D printing hardware, software, and materials for any application, driving the industry to a future state of manufacturing. That means we'll start rolling out some fairly small changes on the UltiMaker community. Mainly by adding new categories to leave feedback on, like a Thingiverse category! What are your thoughts on the name? What kind of changes do you think we can implement to fit the new brand?

  6. Hi, surfing the net I came across this interesting plug-in which, from what is shown on the page, can also be integrated into other slicers ... The question is: has anyone tried installing the plugin on CURA? It could be a very interesting plug-in to put together with the ones already present. I leave the link to the GitHub page for those interested in trying and sharing their experience https://github.com/mfx-inria/curvislicer

  13. Hello! 2020 is almost at its end, and that is usually the time to reflect upon ourselves and the world around us. Look back at all we did and were able to achieve. For all the things that might make 2020 an infamous year, there was also a lot of innovation, growth and progress we witnessed. At Ultimaker we wanted to celebrate all the innovation we’ve been blessed to come across. Not only in 2020, but also beyond. Together, this formed the foundation for the 2020 Ultimaker Innovators list. The Ultimaker Innovators list. We wish to celebrate and honor the innovators that push forward the field, technology and world. We opted to not present it as a competition or ranked list. Every innovator has earned his spot on that list in their own way. We also look at the 3D printing industry as a whole and not limit the list to those only using Ultimaker. How did we select this year’s list? For 2020’s Ultimaker Innovators list, entries were nominated by colleagues from all over Ultimaker. The final list was compiled from those nominees by Ultimaker’s Community and Content Marketing teams. Do you feel like we missed someone? You can nominate yourself or others for the 2021 list at the end of this year's list. Who are the Ultimaker Innovators? They represent a very diverse group of people, creating innovation on many different levels. Like: Innovation; Achieving new things with additive and distributed manufacturing that are beyond the industry standard Impact; Benefits for customers, colleagues, and communities – in particular positive environmental and social impact Inspiration; Encouraging or facilitating adoption of 3D printing and nurturing skills of others Diversity; appliance of 3D printing in new areas and applications From architecture to manufacturing, from automotive to healthcare to art – and everywhere in between – we believe the 2020 Ultimaker Innovators list is a great way close 2020 – and start a new one. Ready to meet this year’s Ultimaker Innovators? Visit the list on the Ultimaker website and get inspired. Do you feel like we missed someone?
