UltiMaker 2+ Connect & Filament
At the heart of the bundle is the latest UltiMaker 2+ Connect 3D printer. With networking capabilities and a new touchscreen, the UltiMaker 2+ Connect is your reliable first step into a world of easy, remote 3D printing.
BASF Forward AM PLA Filament
Included in the bundle are 5 x 750g reels of BASF Forward AM PLA filament.
Short for polylactic acid, PLA is a bioplastic derived from plant-based sources. However, PLA production is depleting natural resources faster than they can be replenished. To address this issue, Filamentive have pioneered rPLA 3D printer filament wound on cardboard spools. This filament still boasts the same great PLA features such as; low warping, limited smell and premium print quality but with the added benefit of being produced from factory waste streams as opposed to virgin pellets. All users of rPLA can feel good about reducing environmental impact, whilst being confident that the print quality will still be one of the best on the market!
