ULTIMAKER 3 (DUAL EXTRUSION?)

Posted · ULTIMAKER 3 (DUAL EXTRUSION?)

Hey guys so it's been a while since I visited the Ultimaker website and as soon as I came on I saw the Ultimaker 3 thing and I watched the vid.

AND I THINK IT'S GOT DUAL EXTRUSION.

That print that they show has some crazy overhangs, and when the color briefly changes towards the end, it seems to show the print stuck in a block of yellowish plastic THAT LOOKS JUST LIKE PVA and I remember that somewhere in the forum Daid or someone (sorry if I got the name wrong) said that dual extrusion was the most-wanted feature and that it would be one great thing to add.

SORRY FOR MY RAMBLING AND HORRIBLE GRAMMAR BUT I'M SO EXCITED.

Can someone please confirm for me that what I saw was dual extrusion?

Sincerely,

nerdwarrior

Yes it has dual extruder, for printing soluble supports.

 

YESSSSSSSSSSSS I wonder how they approached it. Prusa and Prometheus System Y-splitter style? Or BCN3D independent extruders? Or something else entirely?

 

Yes it will be extremely expensive.

 

First reaction: LOL dat was so good **like for you**.

Second reaction: Well Ultimaker isn't exactly cheap, is it? **sigh**

    Well I guess the definition of "expensive" varies from person to person.

    If Ultimaker went for a simple dual extrusion solution it might still hover around the $2500 mark.

    But maybe this time it will reach 3k or sth because of the dual extrusion.

    Not sure.

    Your guesses?

    i think support material will be different to release from the actual print without any damage...

    What? I'm sorry, but I frankly didn't understand half of that. Damage? To what?

    O hey Ultimaker released a new teaser vid with a green and black drill.

    Man those colors look crisp!

    According to the teaser, it clearly has dual extrusion. But the printed part looks a bit warped, so I guess it has no enclosure.

    Ultimaker has never offered an enclosure (except in the new Advance Printing Kit thing), so yeah, this one probably doesn't have one either.

    And warping? I can't really see it. Maybe it's just a filleted edge or a very very slight warp, but I mean, Ultimaker made this for advertising purposes, so they probably didn't use an imperfect model.

    I would say it sounds exactly like Zortrax Inventure printer, which is so expensive it is beyond amateur budgets. The word 'industry' appears on both Ultimaker and Zortrax when talking about this printer.

    Would bet not less than 4K Euros.

    Yeah, I kinda wish Ultimaker would come out w/ a budget printer or something that's newer than the UMO and UMO+ but still within 1k.

    Also, if you look at the 5 Years of Ultimaker page, you can see that the UM3 has much thinner edges for the panels. I wonder if that means they've gotten a sturdier material for the frame.

    Damn... my whishlist for Santa is full of... stuff for my wife... DAMN...

    Think I have to remove her...... presents - of course... :-)

    Maybe next time they release something "whow" and "wana have", Ultimaker team could issue some hints at around eastern so we could start saving money early enough... ;-)

    I´m so curious...

    I'm an UMO+ fanboy, and I wish Ultimaker considered an UMO++, but I guess that would be just an UMO+ with the (UM2+) upgrade kit (which @neotko has already done with very cool results).

    For now I'd like to see cool new features, and if possible, I would like even more if those new features were adapted to the UMO(+) by the community! I'm 100% in if someone wants to hack some Ultimakers. :D

    luckily Ultimakers have always been square boxes, so making an enclosure is super easy....

    True, a UMO+ style kit version of the UM2 or UM3 would be nice.......

    And yeah, Ultimaker hacking is awesome (that's kinda why I bought the UMO+ in the first place), but my big issue with it is that you usually end up buying more parts and spending extra money on something that wasn't exactly cheap in the first place.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        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 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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
