  • Elegan, Apple-like design Very-high-quality prints Works with both PLA and ABS filament materials Can print quickly (at low quality)
  • Expensive Offers only a single extruder
  • The Ultimaker 2 is a well-built, sophisticated 3D printer that produces high-quality prints in a variety of materials. But it isn't cheap. Who it's for: Artists or engineers who need quick, rough prints and slower, higher-quality prints in both...

  • Ready to use straight from the box, SD card model loading, Fantastic Cura software
  • Only designed to print PLA and ABS, Care needs to be taken that filament doesn't catch at the back, Not designed for tethered printing
  • The Ultimaker 2 is easy to set up, and it offers quality prints, ABS and PLA support as well as standalone and quiet operation. All of these factors make this a 3D printer that can ultimately be used easily by anyone....

  • The printers which we tested ranged from around 400 Euros to 2500 Euros, so it's not really fair to compare them to one another. Starting with the cheapest printer which we tested, the XYZPrinting da Vinci Junior 1.0: this is certainly a great little ma...

  • Small footprint, High quality 20 micro prints, Fantastic Cura software
  • Limited filament compatibility, Hit and miss with fast print speeds, No heated bed
  • This smaller version of the Ultimaker 2 features a reduced sized unheated print bed limiting the printer to use with PLA, but for many this sacrifice of materials and print size could be well worth it for the far more compact footprint...

  • High maximum resolution, Excellent build quality, Easy to maintain and repair
  • Expensive, Struggles with certain fine details
  • The Ultimaker 2 has built up quite the reputation in the three years it's been available, and after using one for the better part of a month, we can say with confidence that it definitely lives up to that reputation. The prints are fast, detailed, and...
