One-Year Warranty


Currently on backorder, expected to ship late May or early June.

Designed exclusively for the Ultimaker S5 and S7, the Ultimaker Material Station is a 6-spool pre-feeder with humidity control that automatically switches between materials, enabling 24/7 production capabilities.

To enable the fullest capabilities of the Ultimaker S5, consider the Ultimaker Pro Bundle Upgrade, which includes both the Ultimaker Material Station and the Ultimaker Air Manager accessories. UltiMaker S7 users do not need the Pro Bundle Upgrade since the Air Manager component is built right into the UltiMaker S7 printer.

Important Note: Be sure to update the firmware on your Ultimaker S5 or S7 to the latest available version before installing the Material Station.

Introducing the Ultimaker Material Station

The Ultimaker Material Station was designed and tested to be an automated material delivery workhorse.

Its 6 spool bays give you huge capacity for bigger prints, more small batches, or more flexibility in your setup – which means higher uptime and fewer manual operations.

Each bay is NFC-enabled and compatible with:

  • All Ultimaker filaments (not including 350-gram spools)
  • All materials from leading brands with predefined settings in Ultimaker Cura Marketplace
  • Including glass or carbon-reinforced materials
  • Any other third-party 2.85 mm filament with a spool that fits

The Ultimate 3D Printing Workflow

If you’re someone who wants to effortlessly 3D print parts and models in house, then the Ultimaker Material Station can store and manage your perfect material setup:

  • Manufacturers can easily color-code factory tools
  • Engineers can print functional prototypes and end-use parts with advanced mechanical properties – including 6x spools of glass or carbon fiber composites for high-strength parts
  • Architects can load up to 4.5 kg of white PLA for large context models
  • And so many more…

Simply load material in any order, at any time. Even while another spool is printing. Material management has never been easier!

Compatible with both UltiMaker S5 and S7

The UltiMaker Material Station is compatible with both the UltiMaker S5 and UltiMaker S7 printer models.

Get the Quality Filament You Need

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
