Hello all,

I want to share a recent project I made with S5. 

It has been half year since I got this machine, and I'm in general pretty happy with it. Although it does not reach to the smoothness and resolution to the SLA printer I have at home, but It's big and stable, had never given me any surprises. I especially like the material detect function because the way I have my spool placed can easily get stuck, and this feature saves my print every time. 

 

So the project is a 1/6 scale Tiger Tank turret, printed in 0.2 layer PLA. the veins are too visible so I sprayed with a filling primer and took a few rounds of sanding. The result was better but you can still see some veins in the photos, guess I should sand it a few more times? If anyone has some tips of removing all veins please share and thank you.

The small moveable parts on the cap are all printed with S5, easy quick prints and can stand the movement.

Tracks were printed using S5, got really messy on the back support side but not really visible so I did not even bother sanding it.

The hatch was printed using SLA because I don't think my S5 would do good on this kind of job requires details on both sides? I found FDM printing always leave a mess on support side with detailed geometry.

The head of the commander was printed with SLA printer.

Paint was done later with airbrush, and the commander is a 1/6 action figure produced years ago by Dragon

    • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
      The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
       
       
      So what’s new?
      The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
       
      The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
       
      The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
       

       
      The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
      Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
      Curious to see the S7 in action?
      We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
      It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

    • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
      Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
       
      We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
