3D Printer Materials

The widest material choice on the market

Choosing the right material is critical to the success of your 3D print. Ultimaker’s open filament system lets you print with any 2.85 mm filament, and print profiles from the Ultimaker Marketplace streamline print preparation and maximize your print success rate.

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 avoiding 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 are not covered under warranty, so the use of 1.75mm filament will be at the end user’s own risk.
