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).

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.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
