MEET THE ULTIMAKER 3: Ultimaker Basic Use & Safety Class

Last October, Ultimaker launched the Ultimaker 3, our latest accessible, hackable professional desktop 3D printer. The Ultimaker 3 offers accurate, consistent results, and allows you to produce highly complex 3D prints with a new approach to dual extrusion with our dissolvable PVA support material.

The response among product designers, artists, makers, engineers, educators, students and industrial/manufacturing communities has been overwhelmingly positive, with machines finding homes all over the place, even in fields we never imagined.

The Ultimaker Community Team wants to introduce you to the newest member of our family, and show you how to use the Ultimaker 3. With this new 3D printer comes a lot more than what you would expect at first sight, including new features and tweaks to our Cura Software, an iOS App, and a line-up of easy to use engineering materials that can help you accomplish more with your printing.

In this session, you’ll learn everything you need to print on an Ultimaker 3D printer, including: - Calibration and operation - Selecting materials suitable to your project - Troubleshooting common problems - Design suggestions to set your jobs up for success - ITPcamp Ultimaker printer shop policies. - How to complete training to gain permission for testing engineering materials during this camp year. - Access to the best resources to quickly level up with intermediate and advanced usage topics
