Ultimaker is known for leading the 3D printing industry with its extremely high-quality and reliable 3D printers. The Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D Printer is designed for professionals, educators, and creators everywhere that require a dependable 3D printer with a large build volume, and the ability to 3D print with two different materials at once. The Ultimaker S5 3D Printer is compatible with all of the swappable Ultimaker Print Cores so you can customize your nozzle setup and unlock 3D printing with a wide range of materials. Operation of the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer is even more simple and enjoyable thanks to the inclusion of Ultimaker Essentials, a service and software package that includes Ultimaker Cura Enterprise and Associate level e-learning. Check out the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle to add the Ultimaker Air Manager and the Ultimaker Material Handling Station to your Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D Printer for the ultimate 3D printing experience and configuration!
Ultimaker's innovative dual extrusion system allows 3D printing with two materials at once so that you can utilize multiple colors or support materials like PVA or HIPS alongside your build materials. Dissolvable support materials like PVA allow you to create complex 3D printed parts without the need for breakaway supports. The printhead on the Ultimaker S5 3D printer features an articulating nozzle-lifting system that will physically raise the nozzle up and out of the way when it is not extruding. This allows users to achieve cleaner 3D printed parts without the “stringing” commonly associated with dual extrusion 3D printing. The Ultimaker S5 3D Printer also features a spacious build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm (13 x 9.4 x 11.8 inches). Create large, technical 3D printed parts that are ready for end-use, or 3D print multiple parts on one build plate to maximize efficiency for production and prototyping. Improved mechanical and electrical components allow the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer to be a 24/7 digital manufacturing workhorse that maximizes uptime.
The Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D Printer utilizes easily-swappable Ultimaker "Print Cores" (aka hotends) which allow users to customize their Ultimaker S5’s printhead to suit their specific needs. Each Ultimaker Print Core is configured with nozzles and components which have specific geometry so that they are optimized for different material types. That means that you can expect greater reliability from your Ultimaker S5 3D Printer, and fewer failed prints. Currently, there are three different Ultimaker Print Cores available:
The Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D printer is much larger than either of its predecessors, flaunting a build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm (13 x 9.4 x 11.8 inches).
Building on their experience, industry feedback and the market need to for a large-format dual extrusion digital fabrication machine that can be used by professionals and hobbyists alike--and still fit on a workbench or desktop--Ultimaker created the Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D Printer. With two glass front doors to control airflow and a 4.7” full-color LED touchscreen to control the machine’s operation, you can 3D print like never before.
In addition, the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer comes with an improved filament feed system and dual filament flow sensors. In the event of a power outage, or if you accidentally run out of 3D printing filament to either nozzle, you can resume your 3D print job right where it left off. The heated build plate features advanced active bed leveling, which will contribute to excellent first layers, peace of mind throughout the entire 3D printing process, and fantastic results. The extruder components on the Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D Printer are machined from hardened steel, making them more suitable for abrasive filaments, which pairs perfectly with the Ultimaker Print Core CC.
And now, Ultimaker includes their Essentials program with every new 3D printer. Essentials includes Ultimaker Cura Enterprise, provides e-learning that can elevate you and your team to the Associate level, and even allowing you to set up multiple users for your Ultimaker S5 and lock out unwanted use. The Ultimaker S5's dependability and 3D print quality provide a top-of-the-line consumer experience.
The large build volume of the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer allows professionals and engineers to 3D print actual end-use parts.
Operation of the Ultimaker S5 Dual Extrusion Large-Format 3D Printer is simple and intuitive. The Ultimaker S5 3D Printer's 4.7-inch touchscreen gives even more control over the settings of any 3D printing project. From new to advanced users, the improved user interface guides explain configuration changes for different materials, maintenance requirements, and it displays a visual preview of the 3D printed project. You can print remotely over Wi-Fi directly to your Ultimaker S5 via Cura or the Ultimaker Cloud. Of course, you can still initiate a 3D print in person using a USB flash drive with the USB port on the front of the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer. Feel free to check on your 3D print job’s progress at any time using the built-in live camera on the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer. You can also download the Ultimaker app to monitor your 3D prints in real-time wherever you are!
The two glass front doors on the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer can be used to control air flow and create a physical barrier against the hot printhead components.
Selecting the correct material and using the proper 3D print settings for that material is paramount to success with your 3D printed parts. Luckily, the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer boasts an “open filament system” which allows users to 3D print with any 2.85mm 3D printing filament. To remove the guesswork around which 3D print settings to use for a given material, and to enable success the first time with that material, the Ultimaker Marketplace and Cura contain an extensive library of print profiles. Experience the freedom to choose the right material for your application, and even create ready-to-use parts with engineering-grade polymers and composites. If you choose to use Ultimaker’s first-party materials, you will be able to benefit from the NFC-chip recognition system. This allows Ultimaker brand spools of 3D printer filament to be automatically detected by the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer which will double-check that you are using the proper slice settings for that specific material.
