Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit
Meet Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit
Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit is now available. With the metal expansion kit, you can print complex stainless steel parts more easily. You can upgrade the Ultimaker S5 with the Metal Expansion Kit and explore new metal 3D printing applications. Thanks to the easy and smooth workflow of the kit, it is possible to create stainless steel parts easily and in a much more efficient and affordable way.
Metal 3D Printing Workflow in 4 Steps For Metal Expansion Kit
Step 1: 3D print your part
Print with BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH stainless steel filament to create a “green part”.
Step 2: Send to post-process
Send your green part for post-processing by BASF’s network of certified debinding and sintering services.
Step 3: Track and receive
Track debinding and sintering progress via an online portal, and receive your part back in 10 business days.
Step 4: Use your metal part
Put your finished metal part to use – from small series of tools to auxiliary components
17-4 PH stainless steel plus, which is a metal-optimised support material, gives you the possibility to create strong parts with complex geometries freely. Also, Ultimaker Cura 5.0 includes metal FFF features which provide you with full control and guarantee high-quality metal part production. Furthermore, the Ultimaker s5 has a low total cost of ownership and a small size, which makes it easy to adopt and scale an easy-to-afford metal 3D printing solution. Compared to some other additive methods, you can save up to %90 when you are producing the metal parts and tools that you need. Freely 3d printing plastic or metal parts on the Ultimaker S5 makes it brings together a much wider range of possible applications. Moreover, you can switch between materials easily and quickly just by changing out the print cores, which makes your printer all the more versatile.
The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit includes:
- BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH (1 kg)
- BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® Support Layer (300 g)
- Packaging for green parts and a voucher toward post-processing
- Ultimaker Print Core CC 0.4

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH, which is an ideal stainless steel, is the perfect choice for high-strength and stiff parts. Its excellent corrosion and heat resistance makes it possible to withstand the most challenging operating conditions. A catalytic debinding and sintering process carried out for traditional metal injection moulding is what makes it possible to achieve these properties.
Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit comes with a voucher toward post-processing your 3D print within 10 business days. What makes it possible is BASF’s network of certified debinding and sintering services. You can easily book your part’s post-processing on the calendar through an online portal, and check in on the progress any time you want. Furthermore, you can unlock some additional features inside t
Finally, if you are not an expert 3D printer-user, do not worry. With the Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit, you will have access to a 1-hour e-learning course and get guidance, which will help you create high-quality metal parts with Ultimaker successfully.
