Ultimaker releases new products

Recommended Posts


0.25 mm print core.

After releasing the 0.4mm and 0.8mm print core, today we make another step in offering a full range of diverse print cores for the Ultimaker 3. Today we are releasing the 0.25 print core, which is ideal for printing with higher details, especially in X and Y. With this, your Ultimaker will become even more versatile.

The 0.25 print core will only be offered as an AA print core, because it is not suited to be used for PVA.

Potential use cases for such small details include microfluidics, dental model casting, architectural models, and fine mechanical parts, such as small gears or other models with thin walls, fine text and a high-quality surface finish is necessary.

We put a lot of work in creating the print profiles that go along with these print cores. In order to fully utilize all the hard work we put into this, please also check out the latest version of Ultimaker Cura. Each profile is developed by our team of material engineers after countless testing and optimizing.



Breakaway material, an alternative way to support.

The range of support materials you can choose from for dual extrusion is expanding. Next to PVA we now also offer Breakaway support material. Breakaway can be quickly and easily removed from your 3D prints: simply break away the support material using either gripping pliers, cutting pliers, a knife, or by hand. After removing the support material, a smooth surface quality will remain in the supported surfaces.


Although it is a support material, Breakaway is used with a AA 0.4 mm print core. If you are curious to find out with which build materials it can be used, check out our chart here.


Pricing and availability

The 0.25 mm print core will ship with one item in retail packaging and will be offered at a similar retail price as currently available print cores.

Breakaway will come as a 750g spool and will be offered around the same price point as, for example, Nylon. Both of these items are available for purchase now. Get in touch with your local reseller for their prices.

As always, we're we love to hear your feedback!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
