January 6, 2015: Ultimaker announces the launch of the Ultimaker 2 Go and Ultimaker 2 Extended, two new desktop 3D printers based on the successful Ultimaker 2 3D printer. Attendees at the CES currently taking place in Las Vegas can experience the new products the Ultimaker booth.
“After receiving recognition and awards from the leaders in the industry, we were inspired to make these new versions of the ground breaking Ultimaker 2, supporting our vision to aim for the ultimate 3D printing experience,” says Siert Wijnia, CEO of Ultimaker.
The Ultimaker 2 Go is a compact printer priced at $1450 (€1195) and is an ideal starter device for new users. The smaller version of the Ultimaker 2 has a size of 258 x 250 x 287.5 mm and features a build volume of up to 120 x 120 x 115 mm. Due to its compact design and allowing a quick start, it is not equipped with a heated bed and can therefore only process PLA materials.
The Ultimaker 2 Extend has a lager build volume (230 x 225 x 305 mm) and comes with a price tag of $3030 (€2495). This larger desktop printer with a size of 357 x 342 x 448 mm is for users who want to create larger and more complex projects. It can process materials like PLA, ABS or U-Pet.
Pre-orders for both new 3D printers shipping in April 2015 will start in March 2015.
The launch of these two new products is accompanied by an addition to the Ultimaker website that provides a stage for community members to share their projects and get inspiration from others.
