We at MatterHackers support our educators, libraries, and makerspaces! With a 3D printer, not only will you have a new way to teach -- you’ll also have a new engaging way for your students to learn. Experience is one of the best routes to comprehending concepts and 3D printing allows for that through interactive creation. Teaching our next generation workforce to design and fabricate in 3D is the key to high-paying, creative jobs in every industry. We handled the complicated parts of set up and put together a bundle so you and your students can do more with time and creativity. MatterHackers provides unbiased guidance to get started (or stay current) with digital fabrication, including affordable desktop 3D printers, CNC mills, vacuum formers, laser cutters and engravers, and more. We offer free lifetime phone and email support for all 70+ machines and 1000+ materials we sell, free US shipping, discounts for educators and libraries, video tutorials, and classroom case studies.
The Ultimaker S5 is the first model in the new ‘S’ series line of professional grade 3D printers from Ultimaker. Building on experience, industry feedback, and the need to create a quality, reliable 3D printer for all levels of creator, Ultimaker has brought to life the S5. From pros to hobbyists, the next evolution in Ultimaker’s 3D printing will meet and exceed the needs of anyone.
The Ultimaker S5 3D printer's 4.7-inch intuitive touchscreen gives even more control over the settings of any 3D printing project. From new to advanced users, the new interface guides explain configuration changes for different materials, maintenance requirements, and it displays a visual preview of the 3D printed project.
The Ultimaker S5 comes with swappable "print cores" (aka hotends) so that you can experience greater dual extrusion reliability by utilizing specific cores and nozzles for different material types. Currently, three cores are available - AA, BB, and CC. The AA core is the core designed for standard materials such as PLA filament, ABS filament, etc. The BB core is designed for use with dissolvable support materials such as PVA and HIPS. The CC Core features an Olsson Ruby Nozzle for printing with abrasive materials like NylonX or NylonG. Ultimaker cores feature nozzles which have customized geometry so that they are optimized for different material types. That means that you can expect greater reliability and fewer failed prints.
Ultimaker's innovative dual extrusion system allows you to print with two materials at once so that you can utilize multiple colors or support materials such as HIPS. Dissolvable support materials like PVA allow you to create complex prints without using breakaway supports. The dual extruder on the Ultimaker S5 comes with a unique auto nozzle-lifting system which picks up your secondary print nozzle when it is not in use. This allows the user to achieve cleaner prints without the stringing commonly associated with dual extrusion printers.
The Ultimaker S5 is designed to be reliable and consistent in delivering large, technical prints for production and prototyping. This allows for less downtime and greater ROI. With the new 330x240x300mm build volume, your single and dual extrusion prints can be bigger than ever.
You can print remotely over WiFi directly to your Ultimaker S5 via Cura or you can print using a USB stick. Feel free to check on your print at any time using the built-in live camera on the Ultimaker S5. You can also download the Ultimaker app to monitor your 3D prints in real-time wherever you are.
With all of the new improvements and upgrades, the Ultimaker S5 is one of the most reliable 3D printers on the market today. From the filament runout sensor to the advanced active bed leveling, to innovative standard dual extrusion, the Ultimaker S5 will produce accurate 3D prints time after time.
Your success in 3D printing education is our goal, so we have created many guides to help you!
