Ultimaker Ultimaker 2+ review

The Ultimaker 2+ is a desktop 3D printer made by Ultimaker, a manufacturer based in the Netherlands. The Ultimaker 2+ was announced during the CES 2016. It replaces the well known Ultimaker 2, a 3D printer that has been selected as one of the best “Enthusiast” option in the 3D Hubs 2015 and 2016 reports.

This 3D printer offers a very high 3D printing resolution of 20 microns and uses 2.85 – 3 mm diameter filament (less common than 1.75 mm).

At this price level, the Ultimaker 2+ is one of the best desktop 3D printers based on the FFF technology. The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ features a bigger build volume.

Ultimaker 2+ main features

  • Semi-closed frame: protects 3D prints compared to open-framed 3D printers, while leaving room for monitoring with an open front side.
  • Heated print bed: allow printing with PLA, ABS or CPE (also called UPET).
  • 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. On the extruder the airflows have been optimized for smoother 3D prints.
  • Adjustable gear strength: the gear strength can be adjusted to fit the 3D filament’s properties, offering better 3D print quality at high moving speeds.
  • Swappable nozzles: the nozzle can be easily removed and replaced. Furthermore, several sizes are available including 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 mm for all kinds of 3D print jobs.
