Validated Ultimaker Printers
“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.”

BASF Forward AM and Ultimaker - together unlock the magic of Metal
The long-standing partnership between Forward Am and Ultimaker goes even beyond the material and printer compatibility. With the launch of the Ultimaker Marketplace, an open system solution platform, Forward AM was able to create material print profiles for the Ultrafuse® metal and plastic filaments. These material profiles improve the user experience immediately by increasing the reliability and repeatability of the printing process while at the same time decreasing adoption barriers.
