Last year, Ultimaker announced the merger with MakerBot, combining the power of two leading 3D printing companies to create one brand to shape the future of manufacturing and product development. Since then, the company launched the Sketch Large and S7 3D printers, strengthening its offerings for the educational and professional markets.
Ultimaker has now announced a new brand identity, reflecting its strategic vision and new brand architecture. Under the UltiMaker brand, the S and Method series 3D printers will support manufacturing, product development and other professional applications. As one of the world’s most popular professional 3D printers, the S series will continue to offer the widest variety of materials on the market, making it flexible for a multitude of uses, while the Method series will focus on more specific manufacturing applications that can benefit from access to a heated chamber, high-temperature thermoplastic, and a high level of dimensional accuracy.
Meanwhile, the MakerBot brand will remain operational as a sub-brand within the education sector, with the Sketch series targeted at K-12 learning. With one of the most comprehensive education ecosystems in 3D printing, MakerBot will continue to empower educators and students to take their ideas to the next level.
This new brand architecture is designed to ensure that you can easily find the products and applications best suited to your needs. All UltiMaker hardware and software products are expected to be rebranded over the next 12-18 months.
