The Ultimaker S5 dual-extrusion 3D printer comes loaded with precise, top-of-the-line tech to produce amazing 3D parts. With over 2.5 times the build volume of the Ultimaker 3, the S5 is the largest printer in the Ultimaker family. An adaptive, self-leveling heated print bed with exchangeable surfaces, a brand-new 4.7” touchscreen interface, improved filament extrusion and a filament runout sensor give you all the tools needed for great 3D prints every time!
The Ultimaker S5 3D printer is the newest and largest dual extrusion addition to the Ultimaker line of 3D Printers. Ultimaker is known for leading the 3D printing industry with high-quality and reliable machines. The Ultimaker S5 3D printer is designed for professionals, educators, and makers that need large, consistently excellent 3d printed parts. With swappable print cores, automatic bed-leveling, and an interactive touch-screen, the Ultimaker S5's dependability and print quality provide a top-notch consumer experience.
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 is an awesome dual-extrusion 3D printer with a number of outstanding features. With a build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm (13 x 9.5 x 11.8 inches), an installed glass front door, and a redesigned, integrated full LED touchscreen, you can 3D print like never before. In addition, the Ultimaker S5 comes with an improved filament feed system with filament flow sensor so in case of power outage, or if you run out of filament, you can resume your last 3D print right where it started once you get a new spool loaded or the power back on. The adaptive, heated build plate has enhanced bed leveling capabilities, resulting in excellent first layers, and peace of mind throughout the entire print. It also comes with multiple, swappable build plates for different 3D printing materials; glass and anodized aluminum are included, with more build plate options available Fall 2018. The extruder components have also been hardened making them more suitable for abrasive filaments.
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.
