Ultimaker launched two new 3D printers at CES Las Vegas 2016. The new Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+ are based on the Ultimaker 2 family of 3D printers.
“We are excited to release two new 3D printers at CES this year,” says Jos Burger, CEO of Ultimaker. “The Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+ are results of countless collaborations and insightful feedback we have received from the Ultimaker community. Both printers feature crucial upgrades based on what our customers are looking for in a 3D printer.”
Both machines are the successors of the current Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 Extended and are available for purchase immediately. Due to Ultimakers open source strategy, they collaborated with the community for the following upgraded features on both machines:
- Interchangeable Nozzles: Freedom to change nozzles in a matter of seconds makes working with different materials easier, eases maintenance and gives the possibility to choose between highly detailed prints or high speed prints.
- Optimized Print Results: With the inclusion of a more powerful geared feeder, printing materials are less likely to skip.
- Enhanced Surface Quality: Improved surface quality with astonishing results due to improved cooling.
