Trusted to deliver high-quality results

When a part or model needs 3D printing, thousands of designers and engineers choose Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+.

These desktop 3D printers’ reliability and ease of use are thanks the rigorous testing and development of not just the hardware, but its materials, and Ultimaker Cura material profiles. The result? A workhorse 3D printer that simply gets the job done.

More control with swappable nozzles

Both Ultimaker 2+ series 3D printers ship with a nozzle kit containing 0.25, 0.4, 0.6, and 0.8 mm nozzles. These can be swapped quickly and easily to maintain high printer uptime. Choose a narrow nozzle diameter for high-precision detail, or a wider diameter for faster printed parts and models.

A feeder geared for greater reliability

The geared feeder in Ultimaker 2+ puts more pressure on the filament, and reduces heat exposure from the motor. This improves grip and boosts torque, which stops the filament skipping in the extruder motor. Filament can be easily removed or inserted by using the grip release button.

3D print almost any material with an open filament system

Enjoy greater freedom to innovate with the Ultimaker 2+ series’ open filament system. Having the choice to print with almost any kind of 2.85 mm filament means you get precisely the finish and mechanical properties you’re looking for.
