After a series of subtle trailers, Dutch desktop 3D printing giant, Ultimaker has today announced the launch of its popular 3D printing products in North America. Through a partnership with fbrc8, Ultimaker 2 printers can now be easily assembled and shipped locally to the North American market.
“Within a short few years, 3D printing has already influenced many industries from fashion to manufacturing, and from medical to food production; the opportunities are simply limitless,” says Ultimaker’s CEO, Siert Wijnia. “Many of our European users have benefited from not only our printers but also our expertise and support to the open-source community. We are happy to extend this to our North American customers, who have been waiting eagerly for local availability and support. We can’t wait to see more participation from the North American region to our YouMagine creative community.”
Ultimaker distributes every Ultimaker 2 3D printer with three free rolls of filament, which will include a patriotic red, white and blue colour pallet until mid October, to celebrate their new American milestone.
The company has also released a 3D model pack which is available to download for free from the YouMagine marketplace including files for a printable low-poly Statue of Liberty, Barrack Obama and Mount Rushmore.
As of today, North American customers will be able to order their 3D printer from Ultimaker.com and take advantage of the quicker and cheaper shipping options. The Ultimaker 3D printers are also available to purchase from other outlets in North America including Dynamism, Amazon, iMakr and Makershed.
