Models done with S5 on display at Make Omaha by UNMC.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Models done with S5 on display at Make Omaha by UNMC.

This morning I dropped in on Make Omaha, a local Maker Faire (for lack of a better term), which was cancelled last year for Covid.


One of my former employers (UNMC) had an exhibit of various 3d printed body parts, including a hand with working joints and tendons. (I introduced myself as one of their former Clinical Engineers and we chatted a bit.)


I asked one of the presenters what type of printer they were using for the items on display and he responded that it was the S5 (with the media station).


He said they use that one so that clinicians and students can concentrate on designing and making models, and not getting all wound up with the day-to-day issues with most 3d printers, and stated that the S5 is about as close to 'you push the button, it does the rest' as you can get.


Of course I then told him that's what I have at home, without the media station, of course.

      • 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
