Ultimaker is a resounding success story across our customer base with 1,000’s of printer in use. Ultimaker are forever innovating their product line, recently contributing to this portfolio with the Ultimaker S5 PRO keeping them on the cutting edge of affordable desktop 3D Printing.

We will first cover, what functionality the S5 PRO adds to the S5. Furthermore we cover why and S5 may be suitable for you and mention the strengths of the S5 that the S5 PRO builds upon.

What is the S5 PRO?

Increased precision, reliability and usability. Designed for 24/7 productivity including the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer, An Air Filter, and a Material Base Station.

What is the Ulimaker S5?

The Ultimaker S5 is a reliable, versatile, and powerful 3D printer with a large build volume, which provides accurate and industrial-grade parts. Ultimaker S5 has a simple setup with dual extrusion and high uptime which makes it a perfect professional 3D printing solution. It can create technical designs and geometrical patterns by combining build material with water-soluble PVA support.

Air Management

Air Manager

The Ultimaker S5 Air Manager provides a closed, inside-out airflow throughout the printing process. Subsequently this leads to a better-controlled environment inside the build chamber and filters up to 95% of ultra-fine particles created while printing. The result? A safer work environment and peace of mind when printing with a wider range of materials with an Ultimaker S5.

Material Management Station

Material Station

Seamlessly integrating with the Ultimaker S5, the Material Station redefines filament storage and delivery, unlocking truly 24/7 dual extrusion.Inside the humidity-controlled chamber, six material spools can be loaded in any order with up to 4.5 kg of material.

Each bay features automatic material switching, composite-ready feeder wheels, and filament flow sensors. Therefore you can achieve increased productivity, easier operation, and higher-quality production.

What is the “S” in the Ultimaker S3 and S5?

100% composite-ready

Ultimaker S3 and S5 can print with the world’s most advanced filaments, including glass and carbon-fiber composites. To achieve this, all you need is print core CC Red to unlock high-end applications with abrasive materials.

First-layer adhesion – perfected

Before every print, Ultimaker S-line 3D printers automatically scan the build plate print area. Therefore, allowing corrections to any microscopic Z-height offset ensuring a perfect first layer.

No more filament? No more worries

Dual filament flow sensors pause your print and notify you if you run out of material. Therefore, you avoid unecessary waste and guarantee a high print success rate.

Can I upgrade my existing Ultimaker S5 to the PRO version?

Yes. You can purchase the air management system and material management cabinet as an add on. Subsequently, boosting productivity, precision and print consistency.

Let’s not forget about the NEW Ultimaker S3!

Ultimaker S3

The S-Line brand is no longer reserved for the larger build volume S5. The S3 has the same high quality components such as higher precision stepper motors, a stiff heated build plate, sensors for measuring bed topology for improved first layer adhesion and much more.

The Ultimaker S3 is for you if you are happy with a smaller build volume but want the added precision, material flexibility and ease of use that comes with an S-Line Ultimaker.

Looking for something Different?

No problem, we provide many brands of 3D printer, for example, BigRep 3D printers that 3D print a 1M3 build volume or 3D print aluminium strength composites with the Markforged.

Why Solid Print 3D?

We are engineers and we look to obtain an in depth understanding of your application so we may provide the best possible solution. Also, we provide technical support from design to 3D manufacture.

Advice on what material would be best suited for your application with materials on hand for achieving enhanced visual quality, reinforced components, wear resistance, flexibility, chemical resistance, heat resistance, sustainability, etc..

In other words, it’s a minefield finding the correct printer for your unique application but also finding the correct material with machines as flexible as an Ultimaker S3 or S5 can be a very time consuming and an error prone process.
