Ultimaker Material Alliance


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Material Alliance

Hi,

 

Materials are a crucial element of a successful 3D printing workflow. For certain applications you just need a specific material up for the task, otherwise it will never hold. Whether that is flame retardant, reinforced composites or wear resistant. 

 

At Ultimaker we know how important this flexibility and freedom of choice is and that is why we started a Material Alliance together with the largest and most relevant material manufacturers. This already consists of over 120 materials and the list is growing every month. Each material has a profile that is tailored to an Ultimaker 3D printer, so you no longer need to trial and error your way to a useful print! 

 

If you're curious if we have a material that matches a particular need you have? Visit our materials page and use the filter to get a clear overview of which materials could be an option for you. 

 

We have also started a series of posts where we explain certain properties more in debt. You may find them interesting to read:

Hi SandervG, I have downloaded and installed the 'Filamentive' rPetg material from your marketplace, it shows up in my Cura software 4.8 but when i try to load it to the material station on my S5 i cannot select it from the menu, it has a Red triangle and is greyed out when i tap the triangle it tells me there is an ER64 error. Up until now i have only found that tricking the machine into thinking it is CPE can work, i have also noticed that there is no 'generic' petg option in cura software?

 

Am i doing something wrong?
