Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended review

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended is a desktop 3D printer made by Ultimaker, a manufacturer based in the Netherlands. During the CES 2016 Ultimaker has announced the new version of the Ultimaker 2, the Ultimaker 2 Extended+.

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 Extended has a semi closed frame with a heated print bed. This 3D printer is capable of using 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. This offers a better 3D print quality at high moving speed. The downside is that the nozzle and heater block on an Ultimaker are made of one piece, which makes it difficult to unclog or to replace only the nozzle.

According to its users the Ultimaker 2 Extended is also quite silent (70dB). The manual calibration can be tricky and non intuitive.

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