The dual-extrusion Ultimaker S5 is Ultimaker’s most advanced 3D printer to-date, with the clear objective of meeting the needs of professional users. Most noticeable is the larger build volume which, at 330 x 240 x 300 mm (13 x 9.5 x 11.8 inches) greatly increases the range of the S5’s potential applications. Moreover, the S5 comes equipped with a number of technological refinements:
- Enhanced adaptive bed leveling
- Interactive LED touchscreen with print previews
- Filament flow sensor that auto-pauses print jobs
- Front glass doors for an enclosed build chamber
- Hardened components suitable for more abrasive materials
If you are new to the Ultimaker S5, we strongly recommend you watch our overview video, which is just under 7 minutes.
Enhanced reliability, increased efficiency
Unlike its predecessors, the Ultimaker S5 print bed, with rare exceptions, never needs to be manually leveled. Unbox your machine and immediately begin printing. Moreover, improvements in the active bed leveling system ensure perfect first layer adhesion for every print job.
The S5 also comes equipped with glass doors, reducing airflow and increasing temperature stability within the build chamber.
Moreover, you’ll spend far less time watching long-running print jobs, as the new onboard filament sensor detects when filament runs out and automatically pauses the print job.
Maximum uptime and flexibility
The Ultimaker S5 comes standard with Ultimaker’s proven print core design. Within a matter of seconds, print cores can be swapped. Select from a range of nozzle sizes (0.8 mm, 0.4 mm and 0.25 mm) depending on your specific application.
Easy touch control
The Ultimaker S5’s brand new touchscreen provides an intuitive interface for managing print jobs and machine maintenance. It even includes a visual preview of each print job. With an enhanced user experience, both new and experienced Ultimaker S5 users will be able to get their job done quickly and efficiently.
Connectivity for 24/7 business
Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, combined with the new iOS and Android mobile apps provide maximum connectivity to the Ultimaker S5. Deploy the latest firmware upgrades with minimal interruption and efficiently manage your print jobs while on or offsite. While on your local network, monitor your print jobs using the printer’s onboard camera via your mobile phone. And receive push notifications to your mobile phone about any issues with your print jobs, regardless of your location. Ultimaker continues to support the USB flash drive as an interface, as well.
Minimize time spent configuring your print jobs by leveraging Ultimaker’s integrated materials. The Ultimaker S5 automatically detects Ultimaker NFC-enabled filament. And combined with Ultimaker Cura’s material profiles, your print jobs are automatically loaded with optimized settings specific to your selected filament.
There’s a wide range of Ultimaker-brand materials to choose from: Tough PLA, PLA, Nylon, ABS, CPE, CPE+, Polycarbonate, TPU 95A, Polypropylene, PVA, and Breakaway. Additionally, as with any Ultimaker 3D printer, you’re free to use any brand and type of material you wish. The Ultimaker S5 can handle any 2.85mm materials that extrude up to 280C.
