One of the trends in ls last years is that refers to the use of printers in 3D. The first time I had contact with them was 4 years in the booth of Nokia at MWC in Barcelona. A model there exposed used to create covers for your mobile and Since then much has happened and much has changed.
The last printer of this type to get to the market has been the 3D printer Ultimaker 3, a printer of type open source a manufacturer that has a very good reputation in this regard. A printer in 3D which is no longer strange to see in one home any.
Increasingly there are fewer problems of reliability of such products, a lack of reliability that was reflected among the designed product and which finally came out of the printer. And this is something that has solved the 3 Ultimaker, which It is positioned as an advanced 3D printer.
It highlights the inclusion of new features as the Double extruder with which we will have more print options Thanks to the use of two materials simultaneously, giving equal accordingly compounds used in both color and material.
Also added the Active bed leveling, something that will allow the printer can adjust shape automatically. A novelty that binds to intelligent materials thanks to tags NFC detection.
In addition we will be able to access remotely by Wi-Fi or Ethernet Thanks to a built-in print server. Total control because we have a camera in one of its corners to control any problems that may arise during printing.
The 3 Ultimaker includes a nozzle of 0, 40mm, offering a resolution of 200 to 20 microns and can reach temperatures between 180 to 280 ° C. Given that up to two materials can be used at the same time, these are compatible with different types of materials, including nylon, PLA, ABS, PVA or CPE.
And so it is always up to date, the company has introduced the new version of firmware, cure 2.3. A free upgrade that seeks to improve the control and expand the possibilities of using the printer.
