The Ultimaker 3 series orinters, Ultimaker S3, Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle, Ultimaker S7, and the Ultimaker S7 Pro Bundle offer a carefully designed integration between materials, hardware, and software. These printers are able to detect what type of filament is loaded by using Near Field Communication. Also, the Ultimaker Cura comes with specially optimized profiles that synchronize with the filament. Each profile is the result of Ultimaker's extensive testing to find the best possible settings. Simply put: you can start producing high-quality 3D prints immediately.
Durability with Flexibility, Ease-of-Printing
CPE, like ABS, is good for creating durable prints. Thus, it's suitable for fabricating mechanical parts. CPE is also more flexible than ABS. But, CPE doesn't output the same fumes and particle emissions as ABS. It’s also chemical resistant and can be printed water-tight.
While it's possible to manually configure 3D printers for usage of this filament, the very best results will come from using the new, built-in profiles with the latest version of Cura.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON COMPATIBILITY
Automatic material detection with this filament will only work when used with the Ultimaker 3 series printers, Ultimaker S3, Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle, Ultimaker S7, and the Ultimaker S7 Pro Bundle.
The Ultimaker NFC 2.85 mm filament is 100% compatible with Ultimaker 2+, Ultimaker 2 Extended+, Ultimaker 2 Go, and the Ultimaker Original+ Kit. The previous generation of non-NFC Ultimaker filament is 100% compatible with all Ultimaker 3D printers.
The difference is that you will only get the benefit of automatic material detection when using the Ultimaker NFC 2.85 mm filament exclusively with the Ultimaker 3 series printers, Ultimaker S3, Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle, Ultimaker S7, and the Ultimaker S7 Pro Bundle.
Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
