Ultimaker is a 3D manufacturer that designs and prints almost all kinds of objects and products that are ordered. They provide ABS and PLA filaments which enable users to create complex as well as simple parts at both basic and expert level. Now this 3D printing manufacturer from Netherlands is offering 4 new materials in the market to complement better manufacturing of 3D printed products from the Ultimaker2 series.
