Small in size, but big in print quality. The Ultimaker 3 is a powerful, entry-level 3D printer. Materials for printing consist primarily of Ultimaker-compatible PLA plastic. To request specialty filament such as polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), email firstname.lastname@example.org or check with staff for availability.
Attending the monthly 3D Printing Part I pop-up is recommended prior to using the Ultimaker.
