Core benefits

Built for the factory floor.
Reliability, repeatability and validation.
Achieve more with FDM 3D printing.
A future-proof investment.

Built for the factory floor.

The seamless, powerful upgrade that your production workflows demand.

Factor 4 elevates manufacturing with its triple-insulated build chamber and direct dual extrusion. The automated material handling system maintains filament quality. And the robust, temperature-controlled design ensures consistent production output also on complex and challenging designs.

Heavy duty, heavy weight

Direct Dual Extrusion

effective dual 3D printing

Reliability, repeatability and validation.

High quality results. Every time. Anywhere.

Achieve the highest print accuracy of any UltiMaker printer – even at high resolution on small design features. These will achieve a dimensional accuracy of ± 0.2 mm or ± 0.2% of feature nominal length over the full build plate and across multiple printers.*

Hassle free 3D printing

95%

print completion success rate.

*print success rate tested using UltiMaker PLA, Tough PLA, PETG, PET CF, and PPS CF.

Achieve more with FDM 3D printing.

Direct drive extrusion for flexible materials.

The Factor 4 excels at quickly switching from 3D printing highly flexible materials all the way to strong composites, like UltiMaker PPS-CF. Its H-bridge gantry and direct drive head enable rapid dual material printing.

High-temperature capabilities up to:

340 °C

with the new UltiMaker HT Core.

High quality.
Every time.
Anywhere.

Success with every 3D print.

Factor 4 makes it possible to additively produce & deploy structural integrity verified parts across different locations. The low variance, less than 10%, in extrusion rate and mechanical properties batch after batch, part after part is a combination of the H-bridge gantry, closed loop feed control, and uniformly controlled build plate temperatures – with a maximum variation of 2 °C across the X and Y axes.

Actively temperature controlled build volume up to:

70 °C

heated bed up to:

120 °C

A future-proof investment.

Versatility and quality that translates to fast ROI.

Regular updates ensure that your Factor 4 will evolve over time – far beyond the 12 to 18 months it will take to achieve return on investment. The 3D printer's modular build allows our global support network to quickly replace parts, minimizing downtime.

New printer. Same UltiMaker

DNA

Compatible with Cura, Digital Factory and more.

Built on more than 13 years of UltiMaker legacy – dedicated to innovation, accessibility, and openness.

Integrated HEPA filter

Independently tested to remove up to 95% of ultrafine particles to increase air quality peace of mind. The fully enclosed build chamber also boosts print quality.

Onboard structural integrity validation

After every print job, receive an in-depth report on extrusion parameters deviations from nominal values, their locations, and their severity in the 3D model.

Automated material handling with low humidity storage

Automatic pre-loading and spool switching (up to 6) with RH 15% on any external conditions.

Emergency stop button

A conspicuous red STOP button ensures easy and safe operation should there be a need to immediately halt printing.

7-inch capacitive touchscreen

Mounted higher to give a better view of the first layers when remote monitoring. Monitor your print in high resolution remotely via UltiMaker Digital Factory.

H-bridge Gantry

H-bridge gantry and direct drive head enable rapid dual material printing. Factor 4 is capable of reaching up to 340°C on its print cores, 70 °C on the print chamber and 120 °C on its heated bed

Always up to date.

With dual onboard processors, there is plenty of computing headroom for planned and even unplanned future updates.
