Which materials can be used for 3D printing?
Ultimaker supplies PLA and ABS as materials for printing. For the Ultimaker Original we recommend printing with PLA. PLA is a biodegradable plastic which is the easiest material to print with because of its properties. For printing with a material like ABS a heated bed is recommended, since ABS has the tendency to warp when it cools down fast. Therefore the Ultimaker is the better option if you want to print with ABS.
