Hello :)

I have just bought an Ultimker 3. Should I tell them to wait? When is this new one becoming available?

You might! I can't tell you when it will be released, but if you look at our previous teasers, it was never very far from the actual release.

I'm sure if you talk to your reseller you can come to an agreement (like put it on hold until the release and then decide).

@Fulv - keep in mind it might not meet your requirements.  For example, it might not be able to print PLA.  or it might cost a million euros.  But it does appear to be a dual filament printer like the Ultimaker 3.

Hi Thank you for you reply.

will it be more expensive? Better than the Ultimaker 3 or just different or bigger?

No problem! I guess this is where we realize we've only launched a teaser.. these answers will require some more patience. Sorry ;)

Will it print tiny parts better? Will you take a trade-in for a barely used 3 Extended? ;)

We don't (we don't do direct sales anymore) but if you want, you might want to check if your reseller offers something like that :)

Yay, the Guessing Game is on! Let's analyze every pixel of every frame to try and discover what we're going to be told in a few weeks! :p And we can do it in 4k!

 

So, let's get the obvious out of the way:

- It's obviously a dual-core printer,

- Same way to get the spools on the back of the machine, but no protection for the spools shown,

- Looks like it uses the same printcores as the UM3/E

 

On to the changes:

- It has a front door that opens on both sides, and it looks like it uses big magnets to stick to the upper frame,

- It is definitely wider and cube-shaped, so, I'd say the print volume is up to 30*30*30, maybe 40*40*40. (I haven't gone as far as measuring pixels from stills! ;) )

- Looks like a big touchscreen to replace the small display and the selection wheel, which is welcome news.

- No dilithium-powered energy matrix, I am disappointed.

Problem was that dilithium was very difficult with legislation, being an accidental space-time warp risk. So we removed that feature last second.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
