Printer and printing properties
The Ultimaker 2 Go is an out of the box experience and immediately ready to use, as it comes pre-assembled. If you're looking for a DIY kit that you need to assemble yourself, check out our Ultimaker Original+.
0.40 mm nozzle: 200 to 20 micron
A micron is the measurement unit used to define the thickness of a 3D printed layer. 20 micron is 0.02 mm thick. 200 micron is 0.20 mm. Thinner layers are used for high detailed prints, thicker layers are great for fast prototypes.
Glass plate with blue tape
Using the blue tape is required to ensure a smooth print surface and good adhesion.
Build plate leveling
Assisted leveling process
The print head automatically moves to the back of the build plate, after which the user turns the matching knob and uses the Ultimaker calibration card to set the right height. The print head will continue to the front left side, and then the front right side. This process is repeated once, after that you'll have a perfectly leveled bed which will stay leveled for a really long time thanks to the sturdy build of the build plate.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
This is the process of depositing layers of filament, one on top of the other, to build up shapes and models. Also known as additive manufacturing technology, it’s the process used by all Ultimaker 3D printers.
Single extrusion print head
The Ultimaker 2 Go is a reliable, lightweight 3D printer equipped with a single 0.40 nozzle to ensure quick set-up time, easy maintenance and high-quality, consistent results.
0.40 nozzle: up to 8 mm³/s
The build speed determines how fast the filament can be extruded through the hot end of the 3D printer.
Print head travel speed
30 to 300 mm/s
The higher print head travel speed means faster 3D prints.
12.5, 12.5, 5 micron
The more accurate the stepper motors within the printer, the greater degree of accuracy can be achieved with each print. Our motors are engineered and tested to achieve the very highest accuracy.
The Ultimaker 2 Go has a 0.4 mm nozzle – this is the size of the hole that the filament comes through.
180 °C to 260 °C
With such a large a temperature range from 180 °C to 260 °C, you have greater flexibility as to which filaments you can print with.
Nozzle heat up time
< 2 minutes
The nozzle heat up time relates to how fast you can start printing, as well as how fast it can melt the plastic.
Thanks to the low level of operating sound, Ultimaker 3D printers are suitable for use in the office, school and home environment.
Open filament system
An open filament system means you can use any kind of 3D printing material to meet your needs.
When purchasing filaments for your Utlimaker 2 Go, you must buy 2.85mm diameter filament – this is the optimal size for your Ultimaker.
The Ultimaker 2 Go is a highly flexible 3D printer and gives you the freedom to choose whatever type of filament that suits your project. The Ultimaker 2 Go is optimized for Ultimaker PLA.
A spool of Ultimaker filament is 750 g
Optimized perfectly for the Ultimaker 2 Go, we offer a range of 750 g filaments that are 2.85mm in diameter and approximately 90 meters long.
Cura, our free print preparation software
Cura is our industry-leading slicing and preparation software that turns your 3D model into a file your printer can use. You can download Cura for free here.
Free on macOS, Windows and Linux
Cura works seamlessly on macOS, Windows and Linux.
Supported file types
STL, OBJ and AMF
An STL file is the most used file type for 3D printing. Nearly any 3D modeling software program is able to create these files.
Standalone SD card printing
Simply copy the .gcode file that Cura created for you onto the supplied SD card and insert it into your Ultimaker 2 Go. No computer connection required during printing.
Operating ambient temperature
15 °C to 32 °C (59 °F to 90 °F)
Your Ultimaker 2 Go operates at its best at these temperatures.
0 °C to 32 °C (32 °F to 90 °F)
Your Ultimaker 2 Go can be stored or left inactive at these temperatures.
100 - 240V
221 W max.
