Printer and printing properties

Assembly type
DIY kit The Ultimaker Original+ is a DIY 3D printer kit that can be easily assembled by following online instructions. If you're looking for a pre-assembled 3D printer, check out our Ultimaker 2+.
Layer resolution
0.4 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.
Build plate – Ultimaker Original+
50 °C to 100 °C heated glass build plate Due to the 50 °C to 100 °C heated glass build plate you’re able to use a much larger selection of filaments for your prints. To clean the plate simply open the clamps and remove it.
Build plate leveling
Manual leveling The Ultimaker Cura’s configuration wizard will assist you to calibrate the build plate. The print head will first move to the left front corner, so you can adjust the screw and set the correct height. When finished, press “Resume” and the print head will move to the next point. Repeat these steps for all points.
Print technology
Fused filament fabrication (FFF) This is the process of depositing layers of filament, one on top of the other, to build up shapes and models. It is a form of additive manufacturing technology and the process used by all Ultimaker 3D printers.
Build speed
0.4 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
Single extrusion print head with swappable nozzles Swappable nozzles allow you quickly switch between different nozzles. The standard is 0.4 mm for easy maintenance.
Print head travel speed
30 to 300 mm/s The higher print head travel speed means faster 3D prints.
XYZ resolution
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.
Nozzle diameter
0.4 mm Swappable nozzles allow you easy maintenance and fast nozzle replacement.
Nozzle temperature
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.
Build plate heat up time - Ultimaker Original+
< 4 minutes The build plate heat up time relates to how fast it can reach the print-ready temperature.
Operating sound
57 dBA 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.
Filament diameter
2.85 mm When purchasing filaments for your Utlimaker Original+, you must buy 2.85 mm diameter filament – this is the optimal size for your Ultimaker.
Supported materials – Ultimaker Original+
PLA, ABS, CPE The Ultimaker Original+ is a highly flexible 3D printer and gives you the freedom to choose whatever type of filament that suits your project. The Ultimaker Original+ is optimized for Ultimaker PLA, ABS and CPE.
Ultimaker filament
A spool of Ultimaker filament is 750 g Optimized perfectly for the Ultimaker Original+, we offer a range of 750 g filaments that are 2.85 mm in diameter and approximately 90 m long.


Ultimaker Cura – print preparation software Ultimaker Cura is our industry-leading slicing and preparation software that turns your 3D model into a file your printer can use. You can download Ultimaker Cura for free now.
Supported OS
Free on macOS, Windows and Linux Ultimaker Cura works seamlessly on macOS, Windows and Linux.
Plugin integration
SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Autodesk Inventor More plugins are available from the Ultimaker Cura plugin browser to make your 3D printing experience even easier.
Supported file types
STL, OBJ, X3D, 3MF, BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG An STL file is the most used file type for 3D printing. Nearly any 3D modeling software program is able to create these files.
File transfer
Standalone SD card printing Simply copy the G-code file that Ultimaker Cura created for you onto the supplied SD card and insert it into your Ultimaker Original+. No computer connection required during printing.
Operating ambient temperature
15 °C to 32 °C (59 °F to 90 °F) Your Ultimaker Original+ operates at its best at these temperatures.
Nonoperating temperature
0 °C to 32 °C (32 °F to 90 °F) Your Ultimaker Original+ can be stored or left inactive at these temperatures.
