Replacement S5 glass build plate?

Recommended Posts

Our reseller says they can't give us any availability date... this is actually quite frustrating! What do we do if the current build plate breaks? Organize some glass sheet from somewhere? I find this ridiculous for a 6000+€ machine...

If the glass breaks then send it back maybe.  Or threaten to.  I doubt it will break though.  I have been printing on glass since the Um2 came out a few years ago.  All 7 of my printers have glass.  Haven't had to replace one yet.  I've had a few chips come out and had to flip some over.  Hopefully your reseller will have some extra by then.  Keep bugging your reseller for now or contact a larger reseller in the area.

 

I know two people who - as part of their process - take the glass off as soon as every print is done and put on a fresh glass and start the next print while waiting for the previous print to cool.  They have both been able to get spare glass for the S5 but one of them I think got non-ultimaker glass from some 3rd party.

Hi @Carla_Birch, that you ordered them via NL does it mean you could not get them via your reseller?

The reseller was looking into how long it would take to get hold of them as they don’t stock them, so I just ordered from NL as they come within a few days anyway ?

 

Did these buildplates fit the S5?

 

I've been struggling trying to get replacement build plates from the UK resellers for the last 3 months (they've sent me multiple wrong ultimaker glass plates or just disappeared) after mine ended up delaminating on one side.

Yep they are official Ultimaker S5 ones.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
