Ultimaker S5 3D Printer Review

It’s easy for 3D printers to be complicated, but the Ultimaker S5 is a different story.


Most 3D printers take time and patience to learn all of their functions and features, but not the Ultimaker S5. The touchscreen interface is intuitive and easy to use which means you can enjoy more time printing instead of spending it learning how a printer works. The Ultimaker 3D Printer has been designed from scratch with groundbreaking technology that makes printing faster than ever before which means you can spend less time waiting for prints and more time making them!

Features Of The Ultimaker S5 3D Printer

The Ultimaker S5 is built for reliability, speed and comfort.

This 3D printer is based on a completely new concept which means it has broken all of the barriers that traditional models have struggled to contend with. The Ultimaker S5 has a heated print bed which means you can print with a wider range of materials, including ABS. ABS printing is one of the primary reasons why anyone would choose to print with an Ultimaker 3D Printer. Its ability to produce ABS components that are as strong as steel makes it perfect for making models and other parts that aren’t made out of plastic as well.

The heated print bed is maintained at a constant temperature which makes sure every layer of your print adheres perfectly to the one before it.

It features a touchscreen interface which means that you can operate the printer by simply touching its display without needing to use a computer. This makes operating this 3D printer much more intuitive and easy for anyone to master.

The platform moves from side to side when printing, which gives it an advantage over traditional models when it comes to reducing ‘warping’ in prints.

The Ultimaker “fan” is designed to make the bed completely level and create a surface so smooth that printed ABS models can be picked off without any need for sanding.

The Ultimaker S5 has a powerful extruder which means you can print models up to 75% faster than other 3D printers in its category. It’s also precise down to 0.02 mm accuracy across the build volume.

A dual nozzle system means you can print with two different colours or materials by using the 2mm precision nozzle.

The build plate is fully removable and easy to remove which means that you won’t have to disassemble your Ultimaker 3D Printer for maintenance and cleaning.

The Ultimaker S5 is a great 3D printer, and it should be any 3D printing enthusiast’s go-to model. It has great features that make it a stand out and the touchscreen interface makes it easy to use and operate. In fact, there’s nothing we can see that would cause us to have any hesitation in recommending this 3D Printer to anyone who’s serious about their craft.
