Easy-to-use 3D printing starts here
Scale up your productivity and ambition
The Ultimaker S3 is a complete production system you can depend on in the office or studio. With advanced features to ensure a reliable printing experience, it’s still simple to use thanks to its award-winning touch interface and seamless software integration.
- Dual extrusion with a build volume of 230 x 190 x 200 mm (9 x 7.4 x 7.9 inches)
- Down to 20 micron (0.001 inch) layer resolution
- Open filament system, compatible with glass and carbon fiber composites
- Dual filament flow sensors notify you if material runs out
- 4.7-inch touchscreen interface – Winner of iF Design Award 2019
The Ultimaker S3 features next-generation reliability. Its advanced active leveling, stiffer build platform, heated build plate, and more accurate stepper drivers result in the highest print quality of a machine in this form factor. And dual filament flow sensors notify you if you run out of material.
Easy to use
The Ultimaker S3 was designed so that anyone can achieve high-quality results after a 30-minute introduction. Its award-winning touch interface, quick-swap print cores, and predefined print settings enable rapid changeovers and reduce operator time needed.
On every level, the Ultimaker S3 is our most accessible 3D printer yet. Start creating the parts and models you need using any filament, from any desktop, as part of any workflow, and quickly achieve ROI.
Thanks to our pioneering alliance with global materials companies, the Ultimaker S3 lets you print with a growing library of advanced materials – including glass and carbon fiber composites (when using print core CC Red 0.6 – sold separately).
From mechanical strength to flame retardancy, simply pick the material for your application, download a print profile in the Ultimaker Marketplace, and start printing. Optimized performance – no manually entering parameters.

Print core CC Red 0.6
This 0.6 mm diameter nozzle has a wear-resistant ruby at its tip. Tested to print more than 10 kg of glass or carbon fiber with zero loss of print quality, it offers an extended lifetime of reliable composites 3D printing.
A pack of 25 adhesion sheets to ensure consistent, high-quality results by achieving an optimal print surface and excellent build plate adhesion for your 3D print – whatever your choice of material.
A pack of ten 20 cm (8 inch) cleaning filaments ensure your Ultimaker S3 print cores are always in optimal condition. These are especially effective in cleaning print core BB for printing with Ultimaker PVA.
