The Dutch Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is the big brother and successor of the popular Ultimaker 2. The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is equipped with a heatable printbed, supports PLA and ABS, can print up to a resolution of 20 microns and has speeds of up to 24 mm3/s.
The Ultimaker 2 Extended+, released on January 2016, is made by a Dutch producer, that has certainly earned its respect within the 3D print world. The Dutch producer has grown a lot in the last years and employs at this point almost 2,000 people worldwide. In September 2016 they have received an investment of 15 million in order to make further growth possible.
The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ has a wide range of options, nonetheless, it is a user-friendly 3D printer; the calibration process is fast and easy and thus removes a lot of problems for the user.
The print resolution of the Extended+ of 20 micron (0.02 mm) can certainly be called excellent.
Printbed & build surface
The Ultimaker 2 has a heatable printbed and a build surface of 8.7 x 8.7 x 8.1 inches (223 x 223 x 205 mm). Print jobs have an easier time sticking to the heatable printbed and that makes it possible to use a greater variety of materials for printing, such as ABS filament.
3D print materials (filaments)
The Ultimaker 2+ has an open filament system, meaning that it will be able to handle most types of filaments. The most used materials are PLA, ABS and PET, but the Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is also fine to be used with wood, copper, bronze and Flex filaments. Check out our extensive Special about 3D print materials.
The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ makes use of the popular and inexpensive printing method Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) also known as Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). With FFF and FDM molten layers are built up layer by layer. Check out our extensive Special about 3D print technologies.
After receiving your printer you can get to work immediately, because the Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is delivered in a ready-to-use state. Before the Ultimaker 2+ is delivered to you, the manufacturer will make a test print and all the electronics will be carefully checked.
The Ultimaker 2+ has a completely new feeder and with it it is even easier to exchange print materials. The new feeder also ensures that exactly the right amount of pressure can be applied to the print materials.
The Ultimaker 2+ has per standard the capability to more easily exchange nozzles and comes delivered with four nozzles (0.25 / 0.4 / 0.6 and 0.8 mm) in order to print even faster or more accurately. The exchangeable nozzles of the Ultimaker 2+ versions are the difference between the 'normal' Ultimaker 2.
Optimized air streams
The complete cooling system of the Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is new and with it the prints will be perfectly cooled, resulting in even smoother finishes of your prints.
Controlling the Ultimaker 2+ is easy, due to the innovative Clickwheel, the optimally readable display and the built in SD card reader.
Every Ultimaker comes with the free software Cura. Cura is Ultimaker's own software, that the company has made open source. Cura is one of the most well-known and well-used slicer software packages at the moment and is especially user-friendly. The software runs on Windows, Linux and Mac and all common 3D formats such as STL, OBJ, DAE and AMF are seamlessly usable. This allows you more flexibility in the choice of software you want to use for producing 3D models.
With the integrated card reader your modeled 3D objects can be directly read from your SD card and be directly printed on the device. The display lets you see status-relevant information during 3D printing. Uploading of prints from the computer to the printer is by the way also the most secure method, because interruptions during printing are prevented.
The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is a noiseless printer and is so silent that only the cooling fans of the extruder are hearable when the device is printing on low speed. This Ultimaker is thus excellent for use in most rooms at the office and even inside the house.
