Ultimaker S5 3D Printer
Our Ultimaker S5 is a mid-range FDM 3D printer and the somewhat more professional sibling of our older Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 3 printers, featuring a closed build chamber for more reliable printing. We have the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle, which includes an air filter and a humidity-controlled storage box for six filament rolls with automatic material switching. It joined our lab in 2020.
This printer is part of the special equipment that we operate as partners of the RWTH Excellence Startup Center.
The printer should be maintained according to the following schedule:
- Every Month
