Ultimaker introduces Breakaway & 0.25 print core

Leading 3D printer manufacturer Ultimaker introduces new support material Ultimaker Breakaway and a 0.25 mm print core. Both products are available immediately.

Ultimaker Breakaway is a support material for multi-extrusion 3D printing. Designed for a hassle-free 3D printing experience, Breakaway is optimized for Ultimaker ABS, PLA, Nylon, CPE, and CPE+.

Key benefits of Ultimaker Breakaway are simply print and break it away. Ensures a smooth surface finish on the model. Longer shelf life and less moisture sensitive compared to water-soluble support material, such as PVA.

In order to print highly detailed and thin-walled objects on the Ultimaker 3, Ultimaker has created a new 0.25 mm print core. This print core will be offered in type AA. The 0.25 mm print core is useful for a variety of applications, such as fine aesthetic detailed parts, and tolerance fit parts, such as printed bolts and nuts.

The new print core is optimized for use with Ultimaker PLA, ABS, CPE, Nylon and PP materials. With the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended, dual color can be used, as well as PVA support when combined with a 0.4 mm BB print core.
