UltiMaker – the company was created as a result of this year’s merger of two leaders of desktop 3D printing in the world, Ultimaker and MakerBot, presented the first product released under a common flag – MakerBot SKETCH Large 3D. This is the latest addition to the educational MakerBot SKETCH series, which is one of the most comprehensive 3D printing solutions for schools.

The new 3D printer has a working area of 22 x 20 x 25 cm and a closed working chamber equipped with an integrated video camera. As it is a solution aimed at working with students, the main material that can be used is PLA with a standard diameter of 1.75 mm.

  • SKETCH 3D printer, which has a fully closed working chamber, particle filter, heated and flexible working platform, touch screen, built-in camera, material sensors and Wi-Fi and USB functions;
