Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle Upgrade
Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle Upgrade
This bundle is for existing S5 owners who want the New Material Station and the New Air Manager.
Unleash true 24/7 3D printing
The Ultimaker S5 Material Station has been tested and tested to earn your trust when automatically switching materials. It takes care of every spool swap before, after, and even during a print job – so you don’t have to.
Each bay features end-of-spool detection with maintenance-free, abrasive-resistant prefeeders. So, when one spool runs out, it automatically switches to the next without extra friction, without tangling – without fail. You can even reduce waste by starting a print with a used spool, and trust that the material will be switched at exactly the right time.
Always-fresh 3D printing materials
Every decision during the Ultimaker S5 Material Station's development was made to deliver materials in optimal condition for 3D printing.
Humidity and dust...the Ultimaker S5 Material Station defeats them both. Its silica gel extracts moisture and automatically regenerates, keeping the fully enclosed chamber below 40% relative humidity – even in outside conditions of up to 70% humidity.
By removing the chance of moisture absorption, the polymer doesn’t degrade over time. The filament is kept pristine for longer as if spool never left its packaging. This results in higher quality prints with a higher print success rate – with less chance of human error.
So that's how materials are handled below the Ultimaker S5. But what about that device on top?
3D print more materials with greater peace of mind
If you thought that the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager was just a cover for the Ultimaker S5... think again!
This seamlessly integrated device efficiently solves any in-house air quality concerns you may have.
What difference does the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager make to air quality? Independent researchers found that it removes up to 95% of all ultrafine particles.
While we're proud of that result, it does more than simply check a health and safety box, and more than avoid the need for extra workplace ventilation...
It gives you the confidence and peace of mind to choose materials without compromise. So now you can create the parts and models your business needs, with the mechanical properties your applications demand – knowing that any air-quality risk is dealt with.
So how does it work?
Sssh! We're filtering...
The Ultimaker S5 Air Manager's features a quiet 140 mm (5.5 inch) fan. This has been optimally positioned to create an inside-out airflow, which pulls the maximum volume of air through a high-efficiency air filter.
And that filter is big, making it effective for longer – before Ultimaker Connect tells you when to replace it.
You can easily install the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager without tools, via a sturdy bracket and a single cable. All other functionality is handled by (and regularly improved via) Ultimaker S5 firmware and Ultimaker Cura software.
This includes material-matching fan speeds. Now embedded into Ultimaker Cura's predefined print profiles, they ensure that the fan and filter operate at optimal efficiency the whole time you're printing.
By fully enclosing the build chamber, the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager stops anyone interrupting a print by touching hot or moving parts. And it maintains a more stable print environment inside the printer.
While we've found this slightly improves print quality for some materials, it certainly gives you more freedom 3D print where you want. In drafty locations, near air conditioning units – the choice is yours, knowing that the build chamber is protected from unwanted airflows.
