Ultimaker S5

Add your review

Extremely easy to use and setup, the Ultimaker S5 not only has exceptional quality but a large build volume. The printer comes with dual extrusion, so if there is a material that does not let you print parts and functional prototype, because your general extruder does not allow, use another one that can withstand high temperatures.

The other feature of Ultimaker S5 that’s going to stand out to you is swappable print cores. Flexibility is something that the manufacturer has made sure remains at the center of the printer while designing it. Interchangeable build plates are a bonus. The glass bed is something that the printer recommends for general use. While the anodized Aluminum bed is something that Ultimaker recommends for materials like ABS and PC.

The machine has a closed design, but don’t think that the manufacturer has not given enough lighting for the darkness to stay. The printer can be well-lit enough to let you monitor the complete print process. And the touchscreen interface that you have on the printer’s body acts like cherry over the cake. People who want to complain about the high price of the printer can look at the reviews from users of the printer.
