The Ultimaker S5 is an industrial desktop 3D printer. It is an FDM (fused deposition modeling) 3D printer created by Dutch company Ultimaker, a pioneer and respected authority in the field of 3D printing. The S5 comes after the Ultimaker 3, which came out in 2016. It looks sleek and very professional, and it packs a lot of features and functions. The Ultimaker S5 is known for its excellent print quality and extremely large building volume.

What Does the Ultimaker S5 Do?

The Ultimaker S5 is an all-in-one 3D printing solution for industrial users. To create 3D images, follow the steps below: 

  1. First, create the model using CAD (computer-aided design). Once done, proceed to slicing it. Do not forget to optimize the settings. When it’s ready, send the material to the printer. You can do this remotely.
  2. Second, print the material. Just wait for the printer to finish. The Ultimaker S5 can be left unattended. It will continue working even without manual supervision.

Aside from prototypes, the Ultimaker S5 can also create 3D images of end-use parts and manufacturing tools. Its large build capacity is essential in delivering functional and accurate industrial-grade prototypes and parts. It is also easy-to-use, mostly because of its touchscreen interface. The Ultimaker S5 is also capable of printing multiple materials including the geometries and surfaces. 

 A desktop version of the device is also available. You can put it in your home or at the office, right on top of the desk. Although it’s not lightweight or small, it can sit comfortably on a sturdy table.
