Ultimaker Ultimaker S5 review

The Ultimaker S5 is a professional desktop 3D printer made by Ultimaker, a manufacturer based in the Netherlands. This is an updated version of the successful Ultimaker 3.

Users may control their S5 from a distance thanks to the Ultimaker App and a Wi-Fi connection. There is also an onboard camera to monitor 3D prints from a distance.

Furthermore, to maximize production efficiency, it is possible to group multiple S5 3D printers together with Cura Connect.

Thanks to its closed frame and heated print bed, the S5 is compatible with a wide range of filaments. These include PLA, ABS, Nylon, and CPE as well a Polycarbonate and flexible TPU-style material.

S5 main features

  • Dual extruder (up to 280°C): this enables to 3D print with two different materials simultaneously, including water-soluble support. Also, users may switch between nozzle sizes (0.8, 0.4, or 0.25 mm) to focus on speed or detail.
  • Dynamic bed heating system (up to 140°C): there is a real-time feedback system to make sure the print surface maintains a consistent temperature. The aluminum print surface is removable.
  • Active bed leveling: ensures flat first layers.
  • NFC reader: the S5 recognizes the material it is 3D printing to automatically use specific settings.
  • Start and Play system: users may pause and resume 3D prints to swap filament, for example.
