Made by the new Ultimaker

Recommended Posts

Next to our successful Ultimaker 2 family, another dynasty will be added shortly. Just a few more days until we can really get to know it, but we figured we could already start showing what it can do. In the next few days I will update this thread with some new shots and video's that reveal something.

We feel this machine is a great fit for the industries where there is a need to print even more complex things than what was ever possible before. The next era of 3D printing is about to land, make sure you have a front row seat :)

If you have watched and inspected our video's closely, but you are still eager for more, join us while we make a trip down to memory-lane. See what the last 5 years have done for Ultimaker.

'It all started with a RepRap project that served as a true inspiration for many creative thinkers, among them 3 fellas with a bright future ahead of them...'

And how you plan to remove the supports? With a nano robot that goes inside and eats the supports? :D

 

Patience. A shit load of it :PAnd custom designed/printed pliers to fit inside.

 

Well actually, that model is printed with single extrusion.

As you can see here, @Illuminarti did it in 2013 already. We used custom supports for easy removal.

 

I'd love to see a picture of the printed version with support.

Currently we are a bit busy :p I am pretty sure we don't have it lying around but perhaps one of my colleagues still has the g-code somewhere. Somewhere after the 18th I'll ask around ;)

I was thinking about the new dual printing,

would this make it possible to print faster, using a 0.4mm together with a 0.8mm nozzle,

print fine detail for the outer surface and big fill on the inside ?

That's what I did with the Rocktopus I posted in the UM3 release date topic. 0.8 mm black, 0.4 orange. But printing time for dual extrusion parts will often be dominated by the number of tool changes and the necessary time for reheating, priming or wiping.

i was looking at the videos of the new ultimaker, and i payed attention and how the head is moving and how the build plate goes up and down, very often, it remembered me a dual extrusion that i saw here in the forum, (sorry i forgot the name of who was testing and experimenting with it) it had two printheads, one parked on one corner, so the printer prints one colour, then homes the head and pick the other one and print withthe other colour... or smth like that, somehow remembered me to that post.

That would be foehnsturm that posted just before you :) He has polished that design/approach quite a bit and he's getting excellent results from it.
