Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 review

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

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 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 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 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.

The Ultimaker Ultimaker 2 is one of the best desktop 3D printer based on the FFF technology, at this price tag. This 3D printer has been selected as one of the best “Enthusiast” option in the 3D Hubs 2015 report.
