Introducing the Ultimaker S3


Ultimaker has taken many of the best features from the Ultimaker S5 and combined them into a smaller, more affordable device. The Ultimaker S3 delivers the same high-quality, composite-ready dual extrusion, with the same market-leading reliability and ease of use – just with a smaller build volume (230 x 190 x 200 mm or 9.1 x 7.4 x 7.9 inches).

Key features include:

  • Network connectivity: Print via Wi-Fi, LAN, cloud, or with USB
  • Touch screen: Effortless operation via an award-winning user interface
  • Advanced active leveling: Reliable first-layer adhesion, enables unattended use
  • Front enclosure: Improved printing environment for better print results
  • Flow sensor: Stay informed when filament runs out to increase print success
  • Easy setup and monitoring: With NFC material recognition and internal camera
  • Composite materials compatible: Print parts with high strength and unique properties

Exceptional Engineering


From the ground up, every detail of the Ultimaker S3 has been designed and built to deliver the S-line print quality you would expect. Inside the Ultimaker S3, you’ll find:

  • Reinforced feeder wheels made from coated, hardened steel. These enable abrasion-resistant 3D printing for high-strength parts using glass or carbon fiber composites (when paired with Ultimaker print core CC Red)
  • Dual filament flow sensors that increase your print success rate. If you run out of filament, they pause your print and notify you to add a new spool
  • Advanced active leveling that ensures easy and reliable first-layer adhesion. Begin a print job and get on with your work, thanks to precise build area probing and Z-height build plate compensation at the start of every print job
  • High-accuracy stepper drivers taken directly from the Ultimaker S5. These high-precision drivers are quieter than the Ultimaker 3 and run more reliably to consistently provide high-quality prints


Additional Great Features


The Ultimaker S3 has been further optimized for its form factor. These small features work together to improve the 3D printing experience:

  • Rigid printer frame reduces small vibrations (or ringing) while printing to improve overall print quality
  • Single glass door with a magnetic latch provides a more controlled build environment and reduces the risk of warping or delamination
  • Optimized internal design allowing both dual extrusion nozzles to reach the whole build area, and maintaining a high build-volume-to-size ratio
  • Internal power supply removes the need to make space for a power brick. It also makes the setup process easy across all S-line 3D printers

Unlimited Material Possibilities


Minimize time spent configuring your print jobs by leveraging Ultimaker’s integrated materials. The Ultimaker S3 automatically detects Ultimaker NFC-enabled filament. And combined with Ultimaker Cura’s material profiles, your print jobs are automatically loaded with optimized settings specific to your selected filament.

There’s a wide range of Ultimaker-brand materials to choose from: Tough PLA, PLA, Nylon, ABS, CPE, CPE+, Polycarbonate, TPU 95A, Polypropylene, PVA, and Breakaway. Additionally, as with any Ultimaker 3D printer, you’re free to use any brand and type of material you wish. The Ultimaker S3 can handle any 2.85mm materials that extrude up to 280C.
