Reliability at scale

Print at large scale, or fit multiple parts on a build plate to make the most of the Ultimaker S5’s large build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm.

Function with form

The Ultimaker S5 packs powerful technology in a simple, clean, stylish housing. An embedded power supply gives the printer a clean footprint, making it ideal for shelf or rack mounting. An enclosed front with tinted glass doors ensures that the airflow and internal temperature are kept optimal. And frame lights provide visual feedback, as well as projecting clean white light to overview and inspect your creation up close.

Reliable adhesion, from first layer to finished part

A perfect first layer is crucial to every 3D print. To ensure that this happens every time, the Ultimaker S5 probes the build plate in a greater number of locations, creating a precisely detailed heightmap of the build surface. Using this data, it compensates for any surface deviations in real time, giving you a perfect, ultra-flat first layer, with secure adhesion that lasts the entire print. There’s no need for constant monitoring – just start a print and leave the Ultimaker S5 to do its job, while you do yours.

Filament Flow Sensor

A built-in filament flow sensor intelligently detects when material stops moving or is nearing an end. To save your print if a spool runs out, the Ultimaker S5 will automatically pause and prompt you to take action.

Loading, unloading and changing material is effortless, with an ergonomic locking lever built into each feeder. Flip the lever upwards to manually insert or remove material. Flip it closed, and constant force is applied to the material, so it is driven accurately.

High uptime and greater flexibility

Swappable print cores enables effortless, tool-free maintenance and maximum printer uptime. Two available print core slots in the print head means you can quickly and easily click in your desired combination for reliable dual-extrusion. Achieve different print characteristics using different nozzle sizes, ranging from 0.8 mm for rapid prints, to 0.25 mm for ultra-fine detail.

To get accurate, consistent results with a range of materials, the Ultimaker S5 uses a hardened glass build plate that quickly and easily clips onto an extra-stiff cast aluminium heated platform, keeping your print securely in place for the entire print duration.

Full control at your fingertips

An intuitive touchscreen interface guides you through operation of the printer, and displays detailed status information. Swipe through menus and tap options to select them, just like a smartphone. Detailed information, such as loaded materials, print cores, and the build plate and nozzle temperature keeps you up to date about jobs in progress, and a 3D preview lets you see what’s printing at a glance.

Engineering-grade materials

The Ultimaker S5 supports the full portfolio of Ultimaker materials, including ABS, CPE+, Nylon, and TPU 95A as well as 3rd party materials. With the dual-geared, abrasion-resistant feeder, coupled with the CC Red 0.6 print core, the S5 is capable of printing advanced composite materials like Owens Corning XSTRAND and DSM Novamid filaments.

A smart spool holder conveniently clips on to the back panel of the Ultimaker S5, and accommodates two separate 750 g material spools. Load a spool onto the holder, and using the holder’s built-in NFC reader, the printer will recognize the Ultimaker material type, and automatically select the optimum printer settings, so you don’t need to.

A 750 g spool of Ultimaker’s newest material, Tough PLA, is included in the box of each Ultimaker S5. With high impact strength and stiffness, but with the easy and reliable printing experience of PLA, Tough PLA has mechanical properties similar to ABS, making it a great material for large functional prototypes, tooling, or manufacturing aids.
