• Access to debinding & sintering services via BASF’s D&S portal
• A voucher for debinding & sintering to get started


Which printers is the Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit compatible with?

It is recommended to use the Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit with the Ultimaker S5 and Air Manager. Technically, the kit is also compatible with the Ultimaker S3, however, good ventilation like with the Air Manager is strongly advised to directly remove emissions.


What are the benefits of the Metal Expansion Kit?

The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit enables customers to create stainless steel parts on an Ultimaker in and easy way.

It comes with the following benefits:

• And end-to-end metal 3D printing workflow
The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit provides access to software optimizations, post-processing services, and extensive e-learning modules.
• Freedom to design high-quality steel parts
17-4 PH stainless steel plus a metal-optimized support material* offers the freedom to create strong parts with complex geometries.

• Metal parts. Up to 90% cheaper
Comparing the Ultimaker S5 and Metal Expansion Kit to CNC and other additive methods, you can save up to 90% creating the metal tools and parts you need.

• Plastic or metal? You decide
3D print either plastic or metal depending on your needs. Simply swap materials and change out the print cores, for more versatility and potential applications.

(*) Currently only available in Europe


What are the key applications of Ultimaker’s metal printing solution?

The Metal Expansion Kit is ideal for creating low volumes (series of 1-20 pieces) of non-standard small parts. This includes applications such as functional prototypes, tools, jigs & fixtures, replacement parts for production lines, and auxiliary components.


How does the Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit compare to other solutions in the market?

The Ultimaker S5's low total cost of ownership and small size makes it easy to adopt and scale an affordable metal 3D printing solution. Compared to CNC and other additive methods, you can save up to 90% creating the metal tools and parts you need.

In comparison with other MFFF desktop printing solutions Ultimaker offers a more complete workflow, that allows the user to go through the whole process with minimum hassle.


How can customers gain access to the metal 3D printing courses and other digital assets that comes with the Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit?

Customers that purchase the Metal Expansion Kit are entitled to MFFF training on the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, and access to other digital assets to help them succeed in metal 3D printing. These assets will be made available on the Getting Started Portal.

Instructions for accessing the Getting Started Portal are found in the Quick Start Guide, included with the Metal Expansion Kit.

Get the Quality Filament You Need

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...
