Companies continue to adopt 3D printing for prototyping, product design, and production – across a range of industries such as aerospace, automotive, defence and medical. And as AM has become globally recognised as a mainstream manufacturing technology, the demand for an 3D printing curriculum has also increased.

Ultimaker provides an ideal platform for developing creative young minds. Combining affordability, connectivity, and advanced dual extrusion, Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle also ensures a safer working environment. The Air Manager provides a closed, inside-out airflow for the Ultimaker S5 3D printer, filtering up to 95% of all ultrafine particles (UFPs) emitted during 3D printing. With the build chamber and material spools safely inside, users can enjoy peace of mind and a safer workplace.

Mr Benjamin Tan, Vice President of Ultimaker Asia Pacific commented, “Our trusted distributor in Australia, Imaginables, signalled a growing need for enhanced support services for the educational sector and I believe together with FUJIFILM Business Innovation Australia, we can deliver a turnkey holistic 3D printing curriculum to better support Australian educators in their printing needs.”
