Ultimaker's latest 3D printers (Ultimaker 3, Ultimaker 3 Extended, Ultimaker S3, and Ultimaker S5) 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 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 Tough PLA
Ultimaker Tough PLA is a technical PLA filament with toughness comparable to ABS. Offering the same safe and easy use as regular PLA, Tough PLA is ideal for reliably printing technical models at larger sizes.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON COMPATIBILITY
Automatic material detection with this filament will only work when used with the Ultimaker 3, Ultimaker S3, or Ultimaker S5 series printers.
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, Ultimaker 3 Extended, and Ultimaker S5.
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, Utimaker 3 Extended, or Ultimaker S5.
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...
