S3 vs S5


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · S3 vs S5

A quick google search gives you this article:



Along with an older thread from this forum:


As for S6, there doesn't seem to be any announcements or news regarding a new model as far as I can find.

Therefore I'm doubtful that one would be released before the end of this year.

    Other then build volume are there any differences between the S3 and the S5?


    Second question is an S6 due out anytime soon ie before end of the year.


    They are basically the same, apart from build size. But keep in mind the S5 you can also get official Ultimaker Air Manager & Material Station, where of right now the S3 don't have any official ones.

      • 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
