Ultimaker s5 LayerLock Garolite Build Plate?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker s5 LayerLock Garolite Build Plate?

Has anyone used the LayerLock Garolite Build Plate from MatterHackers on a S5 yet?

I just got a new customer who wants me to print a sample in all the options so he can pick the one he wants.


Wood-fill materials
Metal-fill materials[2][3]
Nylon (Various)[2]
Taulman 910[2]
Taulman T-Glase


[1]May require PVA glue
[2]Nylon Filament requires the 3D printer to have an all-metal hotend.
[3]Abrasive materials require the 3D printer to have a High Performance Nozzle such as a Hardened Steel Nozzle or Ruby Nozzle.

    I don't know the build plate you mentioned, but you can print all these materials also on glass on your S5. You need some adhesive tools, like 3DLac or Dimafix spray or the adhesion sheets and a glue stick.


    For the abrasive materials you should use the CC-Red print core with the ruby nozzle.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
