NOTE: 3D Universe is authorized to sell this product in the United States of America, only.
The all-new Ultimaker 3 3D printer introduces a carefully designed integration between materials, hardware and software. The Ultimaker 3 is able to detect what type of filament is loaded by using Near Field Communication. Also, the newest version of 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.
Ultimaker NFC Polypropylene is durable. It has high toughness, exceptional fatigue resistance, and low friction. It also has good chemical, temperature, and electrical resistance. PP is one of the most widely used plastics on the planet. From electrical components to living hinges, PP is the go-to material for prototyping and end-use products.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON COMPATIBILITY
Automatic material detection with this filament will only work when used with the new Ultimaker 3 3D printers.
Ultimaker has ensured both backward and forward compatibility between their materials and 3D printers, both newer and past.
The new 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 the Ultimaker 3.
Reasons to choose Ultimaker PP
PP is popular worldwide with engineers and manufacturers for a wide variety of applications.
Durable, chemical-resistant, and lightweight
Ultimaker PP is a good choice for printing low-friction end-use parts that have good fatigue resistance and toughness. When printing using one of our extensively tested Cura profiles for Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 3, you get reliable results and a seamless 3D printing experience.
Durable and rugged
PP has high fatigue resistance and does not break when repeatedly bent. Clamps and living hinges can remain functional over the lifetime of the part.
Prototypes simulate end products
PP is widely used in end products. Create functional prototypes and print in the same material as the end product for the ultimate in prototyping.
Translucent and lightweight
PP features good layer bonding, and it is an excellent choice when the design requires transfer of light for aesthetic or other reasons.
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...
