What is an ideal room temperature for a S5 printer ? (or any enclosed printer)


Recommended Posts

Posted · What is an ideal room temperature for a S5 printer ? (or any enclosed printer)

I was wondering what was the best room temperature for day to day use,

of an Ultimaker S5 printer.


I am asking this, because I live in temperate zone.

My workshop can get quite cold in winter (about 10°C during the night sometimes 5°C when it's really cold )

In summer it can get quite hot around 30°C (and little more at times)


Regarding humidity it's Ok.

I have checked.


It's more temperature wise that I am concerned.

And since winter in approaching, I was wondering if it's the right place to do some printing ?

Or should I move my printing operations somewhere more temperate.


Any incentives on that matter are welcome. Thanks.

    Ultimaker says the best operation temperature is between 15°C and  32°C

    I think a few degrees less is also no problem, but 5° is quite cold. But I would try it, depending how often it gets 5°C and how often you print overnight in these nights.

      • 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
