Installing the hardware accessories

Placing and connecting the NFC spool holder

Gently place the printer on its left side. Then insert the spool holder into the back panel. First place the top part in the hole and push down until it snaps into place.


NFC cable

Connect the NFC cable to the NFC socket. The flat side of the connector faces away from the bottom panel. Then guide the NFC cable through the slot in the back panel.


Cable cover

Insert the cable cover into the back panel to keep the cable in place. Then gently place the Ultimaker upright again.


Build plate clamps

Open the two build plate clamps at the front of the build plate.


Placing the glass plate

Gently slide the glass plate onto the build plate and ensure that it snaps into the build plate clamps at the back. Close the two build plate clamps at the front to secure the glass plate.

Caution: Leaving the build plate clamps open may damage your Ultimaker 3 when the build plate is raised.


Connecting the power supply

Connect the power cable to the power brick and plug the power cable into the wall socket. Connect the other side of the power supply to the Ultimaker 3. The flat side of the connector needs to point downwards. Before you push the cable firmly into the port, you have to pull the sliding mechanism back. When the cord is in the printer you can let go to lock it into place.
