The Ultimaker 3 is one of our favorite 3D printers on the market. It's a well-built open-source compact machine with an excellent UX. Every inch of the Ultimaker 3 is designed to create the most effortless and reliable 3D printing experience ever! Click here for helpful tips!

The dual extruder features swappable “print cores” which allows you to use water-soluble material for creating intricate supports. They can also be used to print multiple materials and different colored filaments in the same part. Auto nozzle-lifting system ensures a clean, professional finish with every print.   WiFi enabled desktop and mobile apps let you manage your prints remotely, making it easier to get projects started. This also allows for over-the-air firmware updates. You don’t have to get up to check on prints because you can monitor the process with the built-in webcam.

Ultimaker also created Cura, the open-source software that most other manufacturers use, so the printer harmonizes excellently with the software without any tinkering. And we love Ultimaker's active software dev. and their large online community
