The Ultimaker S3 is a complete production system you can depend on in the office or studio. With advanced features to ensure a reliable printing experience, it’s still simple to use thanks to its award-winning touch interface and seamless software integration.

  • Dual extrusion with a build volume of 230 x 190 x 200 mm (9 x 7.4 x 7.9 inches) 

  • Down to 20 micron (0.001 inch) layer resolution 

  • Open filament system, compatible with glass and carbon fiber composites 

  • Dual filament flow sensors notify you if material runs out 

  • 4.7-inch touchscreen interface – Winner of iF Design Award 2019


The Ultimaker S3 features next-generation reliability. Its advanced active leveling, stiffer build platform, heated build plate, and more accurate stepper drivers result in the highest print quality of a machine in this form factor. And dual filament flow sensors notify you if you run out of material.

Easy to use

The Ultimaker S3 was designed so that anyone can achieve high-quality results after a 30-minute introduction. Its award-winning touch interface, quick-swap print cores, and predefined print settings enable rapid changeovers and reduce operator time needed.


On every level, the Ultimaker S3 is our most accessible 3D printer yet. Start creating the parts and models you need using any filament, from any desktop, as part of any workflow, and quickly achieve ROI.

Material choice

Thanks to our pioneering alliance with global materials companies, the Ultimaker S3 lets you print with a growing library of advanced materials – including glass and carbon fiber composites (when using print core CC Red 0.6 – sold separately).

From mechanical strength to flame retardancy, simply pick the material for your application, download a print profile in the Ultimaker Marketplace, and start printing. Optimized performance – no manually entering parameters.

Improved printing environment
Glass doors help control airflow inside the printer for even better print quality and reliability, as well as providing added safety. A glass plate is also included.

Enhanced first-layer adhesion
A quality 3D printed part is built on a good first layer, which needs a level bed. The Ultimaker S3 print head’s capacitive sensor scans the build plate at multiple points and compensates for any tiny variations in its surface by adjusting the Z-axis height in your print’s first layers, ensuring your print starts perfectly, time and again.

Filament flow sensor
Ultimaker S3 detects if you need to replenish filament during a print, pauses, and notifies you to add more material before resuming. The result? You can still finish a print even if you run out of material – and more successful prints means greater return on your investment, and increased efficiency.

Dual extrusion for complex designs
Ultimaker’s dual-extrusion technology is the most reliable on the market, enabling you to print in two materials or colors. Print with Nylon, CPE, or PLA combined with water-soluble PVA support material to realize complex, technical models, then simply dissolve away supports to leave a flawless surface finish.

Fast, customizable setup with print cores
Material-matching print cores with built-in EEPROM chips are auto-detected by the printer, minimizing downtime during configuration. Swap print cores in seconds to switch from a build and support material combination to dual-color 3D printing. Print cores are available in a range of nozzle sizes, from 0.8 mm for rapid prints down to 0.25 mm for fine detail.

Ultimaker app
You can now control your Ultimaker 3D printers with a few taps from your phone or tablet when you’re on the same local network, and get notifications wherever you are so you can always stay updated on your print’s progress.
The Ultimaker app is available free on Android and iOS, and works with Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker 3 3D printers.
