Ultimaker the world’s largest producer of 3D printers announced it’s newest addition to the Ultimaker lineup. Expected in the second half of May 2018, the Ultimaker S5 offers a larger printing bed than previous models. The Ultimaker S5 has a build volume of 330 x 240 x 300 mm (13 x 9.4 x 11.8 inches), and features Ultimaker’s reliable dual extrusion and water-soluble support.
Featuring Ultimaker’s unique print core design, swap nozzles in seconds to switch between build and support materials, or choose from 0.8, 0.4, or 0.25 mm print cores for fast or detailed prints. A noteworthy ‘new’ feature on the Ultimaker S5 is the 4.7-inch (11.9 cm) touch display which makes operating the 3D printer effortless, displaying visual guides to explain configuration changes and maintenance. A 4.7-inch (11.9 cm) touch display makes operating the 3D printer effortless, displaying visual guides to explain configuration changes and maintenance, plus a visual preview of your print.
Problems with selecting the right Filament and print cores is something of the past. The Ultimaker S5 auto-detects material and print core configuration, while over-the-air firmware upgrades make adding the latest features simple. Print over Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or from a USB stick, and monitor progress via the built-in camera.
Being the top of the line model and having the latest features you can expect it doesn’t come cheap and it doesn’t at € 5.500,00 MSRP, but remember it’s twice the size as the Ultimaker 3, enabling you to print even larger, more refined and complexer models!
