The Ultimaker S5 3D printer is optimized to fit into existing workflows and deliver reliable results. With a large build volume than its predecessors, the 3D printer is intended to be a professional solution for printing functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and end-use parts. It is designed for professional users that require full geometrical freedom capabilities, industrial-grade material properties, repeatability, high uptime and an integrated workflow.

The 3D printer offers a 330 × 240 × 300 mm build volume for printing larger objects, dual extrusion and an improved feeder system with a filament flow sensor that auto pauses and resumes when materials run out, preserving print quality. Enhanced bed leveling ensures a quality first layer and continuously compensates the print bed while printing, which allows unattended use of the Ultimaker S5, the company says. An optimized touchscreen offers an improved user experience. The 3D printer supports a range of materials from PLA to advanced engineering plastics such as nylon and PC. The printer includes a closed front system and anodized build plate.

The printer is compatible with the Ultimaker App, enabling users to stay updated on the print’s progress from a phone or tablet wherever they are. The free Ultimaker App notifies users when a print job is ready or when a printer needs special attention or maintenance.
