Award successful desktop 3D printer supplier Ultimaker has launched the Ultimaker S3. A part of the corporate’s S-Line of techniques, which additionally contains the S5, the S3 was chosen to debut at this week’s TCT Present within the UK. A brand new Ultimaker S5 Professional Bundle has been made obtainable too, combining the S5 3D printer with the Ultimaker S5 Air Supervisor for filtration and construct management, and the Ultimaker S5 Materials Station for storing and feeding filaments.
Each releases improve options of the prevailing Ultimaker vary, with the S3 bettering facets reminiscent of construct utilization on the Ultimaker three, and the S5 Professional Bundle enabling the S5 to supply 24.7 with minimal person enter.
Ultimaker S3 technical specs
The unique Ultimaker three was launched by the corporate in 2016 and has since change into a nook piece for the corporate’s 3D printer vary. Software of the Ultimaker three (alongside its predecessor the two+) can also be what enabled Volkswagen Autoeuropa’s 2018 3D Printing Trade Awards win. With the S3, Ultimaker offers a considerable up to date on the unique three mannequin.
On a degree the construct quantity of the S3 is bigger than the three. That is partly because of optimization of the workable construct area, although the general dimensions are additionally barely bigger. Nonetheless twin extrusion, the construct quantity of the Ultimaker S3 is given as 230 x 190 x 200 mm in comparison with 197 x 215 x 200 mm within the authentic three mannequin. Layer decision (20 μm) is identical in each techniques, as is construct velocity (< 24 mm³/s), the nozzle temperature vary (180 – 280 °C) and different operation parameters reminiscent of ambient temperature, heated plate temperature, working sound, and nozzle heat-time.

All of Ultimaker’s 3D printers are a part of the open supplies ecosystem. For the three and S3 this implies compatibility with most 2.85 mm diameter filaments. One notable enhancement for the Ultimaker S5 nonetheless, is that it has a bolstered nozzle making it able to 3D printing abrasive composite supplies.
The Ultimaker S3 has a contact display screen interface, in addition to superior mattress leveling (bettering on Ultimaker’s patent for the know-how). Sensors have been added to the filament feed to inform the person within the occasion of empty filament spools, and it additionally has a stiffer construct platform. In a lastly replace, when in comparison with the Ultimaker three, the S3 has extra correct stepper drivers, offering larger high quality outcomes.
Out there from 24 September 2019, the Ultimaker S3 has a retail worth of $four,395 or €three,995. Full technical specification could be discovered under.

The S5 Professional Bundle
Till the launch of the S3, the S5 was Ultimaker’s newest 3D printer launch, and was made in 2018. Working 330 x 240 x 300 mm of construct area, the Ultimaker S5 has the biggest print quantity of any of the corporate’s machines thus far. Maximizing the capabilities supplied by the S5’s dimension, the S5 Professional Bundle improve provides to assist handle the security and materials utilization of the 3D printer.
Put in on prime of the system, the Ultimaker S5 Air Supervisor works as print enclosure and filtration system. It helps the usage of extra supplies, reduces threat of interruption, and filters out as much as 95 p.c of all particles created when 3D printing.
Situated beneath the S5 3D printer, the Ultimaker S5 Materials Station is a unit able to storing as much as six filament spools. Geared up with abrasive-resistant pre-feeders, the station is appropriate with made customary 2.85 mm diameter filaments, together with fiber-reinforced supplies. Silica gel contained in the station additionally extracts moisture and mechanically regenerates, protecting supplies at an applicable humidity.
Mixed, the S5 Professional Bundle facilitates steady 3D printed on S5 fashions. In accordance with Paul Heiden, Senior Vice President of Product Administration at Ultimaker, “The Ultimaker S5 Professional Bundle really embodies the that means of hassle-free 3D printing. Our purpose is to make 3D printing simple, dependable and accessible with the intention to speed up the world’s transition to digital distribution and native manufacturing.”
The Ultimaker S5 Professional Bundle shall be obtainable from October 18, 2019, at a retail worth of $9,100 or €eight,685 (together with an S5 3D printer).
Full technical specs for the Ultimaker S5 could be present in our prior article on the machine from the time of launch.
