Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended+ review

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is a desktop 3D printer made by Ultimaker, a manufacturer based in the Netherlands. The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ was announced during the CES 2016. It replaces the well known Ultimaker 2 Extended.

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended+ has a semi closed frame on 3 sides with a heated print bed. This 3D printer is capable of using generic 3D filaments of PLA, ABS or CPE (also called UPET). The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended+ offers a very high 3D printing resolution of 20 microns and uses 2.85 – 3 mm diameter filament (less common than 1.75 mm).

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended+ uses an innovative extruding system. The motor driving the filament to the hot end is not positioned on the moving head, but next to the filament spool, on the back of the 3D printer. The gear strength (new feature!) can be adjusted to fit the 3D filaments properties and this offers a better 3D print quality at high moving speed.

On the Ultimaker 2 Extended+ the nozzle can be easily removed and replaced (new feature!). Several size are available including 0.25 mm, 0.4 mm, 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm for all kinds of 3D print jobs. On the extruder the airflows have been optimized (new feature!) for smoother 3D prints.

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is based on a bigger Ultimaker 2+ architecture, one of the best 3D printer at this price level.
