Moreover, the S5 3D printer comes equipped with a number of technological refinements over previous models:

  • Adaptive Bed Leveling: Ensures optimal print foundation.
  • Interactive LED Touchscreen: Provides intuitive controls and print previews.
  • Filament Flow Sensor: Automatically pauses print jobs if issues are detected.
  • Enclosed Build Chamber: Features front glass doors for consistent printing conditions.
  • Durable Components: Engineered for use with 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, does not require manual levelling. The S5 3D printer offers a seamless experience from unboxing to printing. With its advanced active bed leveling system, you're guaranteed flawless first-layer adhesion every time.

Experience consistent and optimized printing conditions with the S5's integrated glass doors. They effectively reduce airflow disturbances, maintaining temperature stability throughout the build chamber.

Additionally, free yourself from the constraints of constantly monitoring lengthy print tasks. The S5's innovative filament sensor vigilantly tracks filament usage. Should it run out, the printer will automatically pause, ensuring uninterrupted quality and peace of mind.

Maximum uptime and flexibility

The UltiMaker S5 comes standard with UltiMaker's proven interchangeable print core design. Swap print cores in seconds and choose from a range of nozzle sizes (0.8 mm, 0.4 mm and 0.25 mm) to best suit your project's needs.

Easy touch control

Transform how you manage print tasks with the UltiMaker S5's state-of-the-art touchscreen. This advanced interface not only simplifies job management and machine upkeep but also offers a vivid preview of upcoming prints. Crafted for an unparalleled user experience, the UltiMaker S5 ensures both newcomers and seasoned 3D printing enthusiasts can execute their projects with unmatched speed and precision.

Connectivity for 24/7 business

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the UltiMaker S5 Print Metal?

Yes, the UltiMaker S5 can print metal when upgraded with the Metal Expansion Kit, which lets the machine produce stainless steel parts through a seamless workflow, broadening the scope of 3D printing applications with the UltiMaker S5.


How Many Print Cores Does the UltiMaker S5 Have?

The UltiMaker S5 uses swappable print cores, which are very easy to change. These print cores are available in different configurations as follows:

  • AA print cores (used for all non-abrasive build materials)
    • These print cores have standard brass nozzles, designed for non-abrasive materials like PLA, PETG, Nylon, PC, etc.
    • Available with 0.25mm, 0.4mm, or 0.8mm nozzles
  • BB print cores (used for PVA water-soluble support material)
    • The BB print cores are used only for the PVA water-soluble support material
    • Available with 0.4mm or 0.8mm nozzles
  • CC print cores (used for abrasive materials)
    • The CC print cores have hardened steel nozzles, suitable for printing abrasive materials like carbon fiber or glass fiber filled filaments
    • Available with 0.4mm or 0.6mm nozzles
The UltiMaker S5 printer includes two of the AA 0.4mm print cores and one BB 0.4mm print core. This means you have everything you need to start printing, either for two-color printing (using two AA print cores) or using a build material with water-soluble PVA supports (using one AA and one BB print core).
You can purchase additional print cores as needed. The 0.8mm print cores will allow you to significantly increase your print speeds. And the CC print cores will enable you to print those abrasive materials you plan to use.


What is the Maximum Temperature for the UltiMaker S5?

The maximum extruder temperature for the UltiMaker S5 is 280°C, though it's recommended not to exceed 260°C with a more conservative limit of 250 to 255°C suggested for optimal operation. The printer operates best within a temperature range of 15°C to 32°C. Additionally, the bed of the UltiMaker S5 can reach a maximum temperature of 140°C, which is ideal for printing with high-temperature materials like ABS or Polycarbonate​.
