Ultimaker Materials


3D Printer Materials


We only want what’s best for you and your 3D printer, so Ultimaker is one of the few manufacturers who rigorously test our filaments in our printers.

Working intensively with material suppliers, we’ve developed filaments with superior formulation for incredible print quality.  And to optimize every print, there are Cura* “material profiles” programmed for each filament that can take care of everything, or give you total freedom, it’s your choice!

*Cura is the slicing software used with Ultimaker printers.

Reminder on Filament Size
Ultimaker printers are designed for use with 2.85mm filament. While our open filament architecture does allow for experimental use of other materials, we would advise to avoid promoting the use of 1.75mm size filament if possible. While there have been anecdotal reports of some success, running 1.75mm filament poses a greater risk of clogging, especially on the print cores of the UM3. Remember that any issues that occur due to using a third party material is not covered under warranty, so the use of 1.75mm filament will be at the end user’s own risk.
