Laser cutting a replacement panel for Ultimaker S5


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Laser cutting a replacement panel for Ultimaker S5



Due to an accident while moving the printer the rear frame panel on our Ultimaker S5 has warped such that the tabs of the spool-feeder cylinder are grazing the build plate and occasionally catching it.


I'd like to laser cut a replacement frame. Do folks know if DXF files exist for the Ultimaker S5 frame? I didn't find anything here, or via google, or on Thingiverse, but might not be searching properly.

    The source files are not open source (yet) of the S5, so you will not find any files related to it.

    But you should be able to order the part at your reseller.

    Yes it is, I don't know the English name, but in Austria we call these panels "Alu Dibond".


    But I think it is easier to buy this spare part from your reseller or @fbrc8-erin can help you directly.

    We call the material Dibond. For most any other panel, a replacement panel should be pretty readily available. For the back panel it's a little different; removing the back panel exposes the power supply, so back panel replacements should be done where the machine can be HiPot tested for safety.

      • 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
