Ultimaker S5 - new version?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 - new version?

I was looking for the latest S5 firmware on the Ultimaker site and I came across this:




What is the real difference between the old and new models? (other than the logo on the side) Has anyone noticed any improvements or changes in the newer model? And maybe the most important question, does the older model have a hidden issue which was quietly fixed? It doesn't make sense to me to keep the name intact but change something undisclosed for any other reason than because of some failure or issue.

    Why did Ultimaker release a different version of the Ultimaker S5?

    Firstly, the new version of the Ultimaker S5 includes the branding updates to align this printer with the other products in the S-line, such as the Ultimaker S3 and the Ultimaker S5 Material Station. 

    Next, the changes made under the cover of the Ultimaker S5 improve the electromagnetic compatibility of the printer and help ensure that the new version of the Ultimaker S5 is Class B compliant.

    Lastly, the 2018 version of the Ultimaker S5 conforms to safety standard IEC 60950-1 and the new version to IEC 62368-1. The standard IEC 62368-1 is mandatory per December 2020.

      • 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
