I have recently decided to purchase Ultimaker 3 becasue of all positive reviews and the features it has.


Ultimaker 3 is perfect with printing PLA. I am printing extreemly small parts and extreemly large and it goes great.

However , i started printing ABS with the default cura settings , but the ABS is not provided by Ultimaker. (Third party , high end ABS).

My print did not stick well  on glass, with or without glue. I added a PEI layer on the glass . The part still delaminated sometimes and there was a lot of warping !

To print successfully ABS you need to cover the front of your printer and maybe also the top, to keep the air warm inside during the print. For adhesion, the UM adhesion sheets or Dimafix or 3DLac spray helps a lot.
