Ultimaker Website

“Customers are looking for solutions, not just a single technology or product. From that aspect, we need an ecosystem to help us develop specific, customized solutions with a competitive advantage for our end users, through materials, hardware, software or a combination of the three. BASF Forward was one of the first partners in our Material Alliance and for many years we have intensively worked together with both teams on developments that will take the 3D industry to new heights.”
