Bradford, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom – 21 August 2019 – Filamentive is pleased to announce our participation in The Ultimaker Material Alliance Program –  a collaboration allowing filament companies to offer their products in Ultimaker Marketplace. 

Four of our 3D printing filaments – ASA, Carbon Fibre, PETg and PLA – have been added to the Ultimaker Marketplace. In-line with our production model and sustainability policy, the named materials feature high-percentage recycled content declared according to the standards of ISO 14021.

As such, these four products will be listed in the Ultimaker software and all 3D printing settings will be provided to make sure that we can together offer unprecedented hassle-free printing, first-time-right-printing and ease of use to our joint end-users – substantially improving printing reliability and printing quality.

Ravi Toor, Managing Director at Filamentive: “Plastic waste is a global problem, and technology such as 3D printing has the power to facilitate sustainable development and resource efficiency. With more than 100,000 Ultimaker users in the professional market and 3 million Cura users worldwide, the availability of Filamentive material profiles will increase the awareness, credibility and ultimately use of recycled materials to further reduce the environmental impact of FFF 3D printing.”

Bart van As, Product Manager Materials at Ultimaker: “Ultimaker Printers are suitable for professional 3D printing by offering a hassle free 3D printing experience with industrial-grade materials. We are very proud to inform the market that 4 different types of filaments of Filamentive will soon be available through the Ultimaker Marketplace.

These print profiles have been optimized using Ultimaker’s specialized software that is available to partners in our Ultimaker Material Alliance Program. 3D printing professionals worldwide can soon use FFF technology to print with a recycled material in order to achieve beautifully designed results printed in 3D.
