3D PRINTER COMPARISON:
FUSION3 EDGE VS. ULTIMAKER S5 PRO BUNDLE
In 2019, Netherlands-based Ultimaker announced its upgrade to the Ultimaker S5, the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle to compete with then flagship 3D printer, the Fusion3 F410, seemingly to target large companies.
Based on Ultimaker’s marketing literature, the S5 Pro Bundle has a few unique features:
- Filament storage area that is dehumidified and will switch materials in mid print.
- Air filtration and circulation that adjusts based on the material printed.
With the introduction of Fusion3’s EDGE 3D Printer, this next generation, USA-made 3D printer leapfrogs the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle and with a number of advantages:
- EDGE has a much larger print area than the Ultimaker S5.
- Unlike the Ultimaker S5, the Fusion3 EDGE is designed, manufactured in the USA.
- Fusion3 offers 2 Year Warranty and Free Lifetime Support, provided by our own factory-based, expert technical support team. Ultimaker only provides 1 year warranty which is provided in the USA by a contracted 3rd party.
- The brand new, next generation Fusion3 EDGE 3D printer costs approximately $2,500 less than the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle!
We are confident in the Fusion3 EDGE’s abilities in comparison to the top competitors on the market, like Ultimaker. Fusion3 offers our customers the best in performance, durability and ease of use.
