Being a new generation machine, Ultimaker 3 boasts of having dual extruders and a lot of other supporting features to help its user scale their creativity even further. Not only is the machine very effective in solving different problems, but also it is capable of accomplishing difficult designs with ease. Ultimaker 3 achieves high-quality prints and has many desirable inclusions making the machine fitting completely for professional and high-end applications. 

This 3D printer is beginner-friendly and was featured in our Top 10 Best 3D Printers for Beginners, From Cheapest to Most Expensive. This 3D printer is equipped with dual extrusion which means that one can print using two colors simultaneously. Moreover, creating supports with Ultimaker 3 is easy with the machine because of the introduction of an extra extruder. Also, it is noteworthy to mention that the nozzle of this machine is not in use, and it retracts partially itself into the print core. This helps in avoiding any contamination between different materials which is the case with most 3D printers. 

The price of Ultimaker 3, as most of us can guess by looking at its feature, is more than its predecessors. However, this is because of the many advanced features added to it which enhances the performance of the device and at the same time to provides the ultimate experience to its users. Being an FDM machine, the range may seem on a higher side, however, Ultimaker 3 does everything to deserve that price.
