Freedom to design high-quality steel parts

The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit combines 17-4 PH stainless steel with a metal-optimized support material. This offers the freedom to create high-strength parts with complex geometries.

On top of that, Ultimaker Cura 5 includes extra metal FFF features, gives you full control and ensures a more reliable and high-quality result.


Metal parts. Up to 90% cheaper

Reliable metal 3D printing doesn't have to be expensive. The Ultimaker S5's low total cost of ownership and small size makes it easy to adopt and scale an affordable metal 3D printing solution.

Compared to CNC and other additive methods, you can achieve up to 90% cost-savings. And because the Ultimaker S5 can fit on your desk, this solution is easy to adopt and scale based on your need for small series of metal tools and auxiliary components.

Plastic or metal? You decide

Being able to 3D print either plastic or metal on the Ultimaker S5 opens up a wider range of potential applications. Just switch out the print cores to switch between materials!

This gives you the flexibility to 3D print using an even wider range of materials all on one machine – from simple PLA or Tough PLA, to engineering-grade polymers, to stainless steel.

Key Features


What's included

The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit includes:

  • BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH (1 kg)
  • Ultimaker Print Core CC 0.4
  • Magigoo Pro Metal (50 ml) adhesive
  • Ultimaker Cleaning Filament (10 pcs)
  • Ultimaker Glue release tray
  • MFFF Ultimaker Academy (E-learning) courses
  • Debinding & Sintering(D&S) Voucher (for D&S up to 1 kg of parts)
  • Free Ultimaker Cura software with optimized metal part slicing features

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH is an ideal stainless steel for high-strength and stiff parts. It is also capable of withstanding the harshest operating conditions thanks to its excellent corrosion and heat resistance.

These properties are achieved through a proven catalytic debinding and sintering process used for traditional metal injection molding.



Each Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit includes a voucher toward post-processing your 3D print into a full metal part within 10 business days.

This is possible via BASF's network of certified debinding and sintering services. Via an online portal, you can book your part's post-processing on the calendar and check in on your part's progress at any time.



The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit unlocks extra features inside the Ultimaker Cura 5 engine.

These make metal print preparation simpler – automatically and accurately compensating for shrinkage that happens during sintering across all axes. You gain better control over your part and increased metal print success.
