Very good printer for semi-profesional use

I love my UM3E, it is the best printer I ever used yet. No fails and very good printing quality with all kinds of material I could test so far (ABS, PLA, PVA, PA12, TPU). Support is also very nice, the community is a good place to share experiences and inform about anything concerning 3D Printing with Ultimaker printers

If I had a lot more money I would buy an 3NTR to expand my workflow, but my Ultimaker will be still here for his lifetime...

Two extruder

I have done many 3D printing by using two color or two materials. I have done Mans Prints, using PVA as helper Material.

The Ultimaker 3 Extended is a Great all round printer, Great for sub-commercial and hobby.

I Greatly Appreciate the range of filaments that can be used in the printer, and also the Fantastic upgrades from the Ultimaker Store And '3D Solex'-(the reason why I chose the UM3 E, over Raise 3D), this allows for Quite Useful machine add-ons like the Ruby and sapphire Nozzles of various sizes, which in turn allow prolonged printing of course (professional) filaments such as Nylon X (Carbon fiber) filament & Layceramic filament...

I Do However dislike the WiFi and NFC technology integrated into the machine because of adverse health effects that result from long term electromagnetic pollution exposure resultant of these radio frequency and microwave frequency emissions, however that can be fixed by placing aluminium foil between you and the printer.

I would have also appreciated a larger build plate (eg. 400 mm X 400 mm X 500 mm) but that would lower total revenue, so the new machine roughly $10,000 AUD called the 'Ultimaker S5' partially makes up for this aspect, the money spent on the camera  NFC, and or WiFi should have been put into a dry-box so that the pva filament and other hygroscopic filaments would be protected and therefore usable.

All-round Smooth machine.

Good printer !

It is a good enough reliable printer. The only problem is in the calibration of the x / y which is not simple. It is mandatory to add a hood. The printer must be placed in a space where the temperature is stable. The price remains quite high.

fantastic build quality, highly accurate.

A great range of accessories, at a price... replacement nozzles $190 AUD.

However 3D Solex.com  Makes this Printer even better with a very important print core accessory with nozzles capable of 0.25 to 1.2mm extrusion diameter.

unfortunately it must be supervised during printing as many prints have come loose during printing even when using osmer glue and polyimide tape, adhesion is most important, 

ABS as always is sad to print with, The polycarbonate, polypropylene and PETG filaments are my personal favorites for this printer.

I have been using it for two years now - the printer is great! I recommend it to beginners and quite advanced in 3D printing!
