UMB OUT port: what is it for?

Posted · UMB OUT port: what is it for?

hi there, a newbie here. I can't find any information about UMB OUT port at the back of S5 printer. I checked the manual and there's no information. Anyone know what is it for? 

 

Many thanks!

    It is a bus system for future addons. We will see what will come in the future to extend the possibilities....

     

     

    Many thanks for a quick response. So at this moment there's nothing we can do with this port? It's there just in case some future firmware updates will allow to use it in some way or another?

    "UltiBus"

    I know the meaning of "bus" in this situation, but I couldn't resist, it sounds like the vehicle which picks up Ultimaker employees to get to work every day like in very big companies ?

    We had a van at some point that we also dubbed the ulti-bus. But even now, Ultimaker isn't big enough to have those kind of facilities ?

    I would imagine that there will be a material station and air manager for the S3 eventually... Pure speculation though!

    Hi

     

    The OP was looking at an S5. We now know the port plays with the Air Manager. If the S3 has the same sort of port then maybe someday there will be add ons for it as well. There is no way to know until Ultimaker sends out a product announcement. They don't seem to be big on the "never ending hints" game.
