Farnell offers 3D desktop printers from Ultimaker

A range of Ultimaker products is now available in Europe from Farnell. Ultimaker 3D printers help users create prototypes and functional models in hours instead of weeks, says the distributor and are trusted by professionals, educators and innovators worldwide.

The Ultimaker range of 3D printers available from Farnell include the Ultimaker 2+, which is described as an ´all-rounder´ that is reliable, efficient and user-friendly. It supports a wide range of materials and can be used for a variety of applications, including prototypes and customised tools.

Based on Ultimaker 2, the Ultimaker 2+ extended is a desktop printer that is claimed to be one of the most advanced, precise and reliable desktop 3D printers available. Intuitive software prepares the design for print. A radial scroll wheel allows for adjustment of speed and heat even whilst the object is printing. It offers hours of continuous reliable printing for long print jobs, says Farnell, adding that the heated print bed rarely needs adjustment.

The complex design 3D printer, the Ultimaker 3 is also available. This is claimed to be the most reliable dual extrusion 3D printer available. It helps users achieve complex designs and improved 3D print performance with an auto-nozzle lifting system, professional build and support material combinations, and swappable print cores. The Ultimaker 3 features seamless hardware, software and material integration, enabling designers, engineers and manufacturers to approach the innovation process in a completely new way and create complex geometries and remarkable design intricacy, explains Farnell.

For large build, volume printing, there is the Ultimaker S5. This desktop 3D printer delivers accurate, industrial-grade parts, time and time again, says the company. It has a simple set up, high up time, and reliable dual extrusion, it adds.

For customers getting started with 3D printing, the element14 Community have produced a range of webinars that cover topics from ‘What is 3D Printing’ to ‘Printer and Filament Maintenance’ and ‘3D Scanning’.
