Designed exclusively for UltiMaker S5 and S7 3D printers, the UltiMaker Material Station is an accessory that supercharges your 3D printing experience. This 6-spool pre-feeder boasts humidity control and automatically switches between materials, offering you the luxury of uninterrupted, 24/7 production.

If you're an UltiMaker S5 user looking to unlock the printer’s maximum potential, consider the UltiMaker Pro Bundle Upgrade. The package 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.

Overview


Introducing the Ultimaker Material Station

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

With 6 spool bays, the Material Station delivers increased capacity, facilitating bigger prints, various small batches, and more adaptability, leading to reduced downtime and minimal manual intervention.

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

Efficiency and precision in 3D printing are crucial, and the UltiMaker Material Station offers unmatched convenience to enhance and streamline your workflow:

  • Manufacturers: Save time with intuitive color-coding of factory tools, ensuring faster identification and reduced errors.
  • Engineers: Harness the power of precision. With the ability to load 6x spools of specialized materials, you can rapidly transition from concept to high-strength, functional prototypes.
  • Architects: Bring your visions to life faster. With capacity for 4.5 kg of white PLA, create detailed, large-scale models without constant material swaps.
  • And so many more…

The value extends beyond these professions. Educators, hobbyists, and others will find the Material Station's adaptability invaluable. Its design allows for on-the-fly material changes in any sequence, even during an active print, minimizing interruptions and maximizing productivity in your 3D printing operations.


Compatible with both UltiMaker S5 and S7

The UltiMaker Material Station seamlessly integrates with both the UltiMaker S5 and UltiMaker S7 printers, enhancing versatility in your 3D printing setup with UltiMaker’s top-notch technology.

Whether you're new to 3D printing, UltiMaker products or just looking to get more out of your processes, this video provides essential tips to ensure you're making the most of your Material Station from day one.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need Special Software to Use the Material Station?

The Material Station is designed to work seamlessly with UltiMaker Cura, the slicing software used for UltiMaker printers. Material profiles in UltiMaker Cura help ensure correct settings and optimized operation with the Material Station.

What Is the Humidity Level in the UltiMaker Material Station?

The UltiMaker Material Station is designed to maintain a controlled humidity environment for stored filament spools. It aims to keep the humidity level below 40% RH (Relative Humidity) inside its chamber. This controlled environment helps protect sensitive filaments, such as PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol), nylon, and others, from absorbing moisture from the air, which can degrade their print quality and mechanical properties.

Can I Use Third-Party Filaments with the UltiMaker Material Station?

Yes, the Material Station is designed to support both UltiMaker and a wide range of third-party filaments. However, it's recommended to always check compatibility and ensure you're using the correct material profiles in UltiMaker Cura for the best printing results.


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...
