Specs

Dimensions

Build volume

The physical space inside the UltiMaker S3 that can be used for single or dual extrusion 3D printing.

230 x 190 x 200 mm (9 x 7.4 x 7.9 inches)

Assembled dimensions

The 3D printer dimensions, including the spool holder and Bowden tubes.

W 394 x D 489 x H 637 mm (W 15.5 x D 19.3 x H 25.1 inches)

Print technology

This is the process of depositing layers of filament, one on top of the other, to build up shapes and models. It is a form of additive manufacturing technology and the process used by all UltiMaker 3D printers.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Compatible filament diameter

The filament diameter that achieves optimal results on UltiMaker S series 3D printers.

2.85 mm

Weight

The net weight of the 3D printer.

14.4 kg (31.7 lbs)

Maximum power output

The peak power output that the printer can reach – usually when the heated bed and hot ends are heating up.

350 W

Printer properties

Layer resolution

A micron is the measurement used to define the thickness of a 3D printed layer. 20 micron is 0.02 mm thick. Thinner layers are used for high-detail prints, thicker layers are great for fast prototypes.

0.25 mm nozzle: 150 - 60 micron 0.4 mm nozzle: 200 - 20 micron 0.6 mm nozzle: 300 - 20 micron 0.8 mm nozzle: 600 - 20 micron

XYZ resolution

The more accurate the stepper motors within the printer, the greater degree of accuracy and finer resolution can be achieved with each print.

6.9, 6.9, 2.5 micron

Feeder type

Enhanced feeders on the UltiMaker S3 move filament at a precise rate with an abrasive resistant feeder gear that's ready to print with composite materials and metal. Flip the ergonomic locking lever to easily insert or remove your 3D printing materials.

Dual-geared feeder, reinforced for composite materials

Display

The award-winning touchscreen gives you intuitive control over your setup and shows a preview of your print. Supported languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese.

4.7-inch (11.9 cm) color touchscreen

Print core replacement

Faster print core changes mean higher uptime and easier maintenance. The UltiMaker S7 comes with print cores for build (AA) and water-soluble support (BB) materials. A print core for abrasive composite materials (CC) is available separately.

Swappable print cores

Print head

Thanks to swappable print cores, you can quickly switch between different filaments and material-matching print cores. This results in higher uptime and easier maintenance of your 3D printer.

Dual extrusion print head with an auto-nozzle lifting system, swappable print cores.

Nozzle diameters

Smaller nozzle diameters enable more detailed prints, large diameters reduce overall print time. This 3D printer ships with two AA 0.4 mm print cores and one BB 0.4 mm print core.

0.25 mm, 0.4 mm, 0.6 mm, 0.8 mm

Operation parameters

Build speed

The build speed relates to how fast the filament can be extruded through the hot end of the 3D printer. The higher the value the greater the achievable print speed.

< 24 mm³/s

Nozzle temperature

A wide nozzle temperature range means greater flexibility in the 3D printing material choice.

180 - 280 °C

Nozzle heat-up time

The nozzle heat-up time relates to how fast you can start printing, as well as how fast it can melt the polymer filament.

< 2 minutes

Operating sound

Thanks to their quiet operation, Ultimaker 3D printers are suitable for use in the office, studio, or classroom environment.

< 50 dBA

Build plate leveling

The Ultimaker S5 ensures more accurate build plate calibration and better adhesion. The print head's capacitive sensor scans the build plate at multiple points and compensates for any Z-axis offset by adjusting the height of your print's first layers.

Advanced active leveling

Build plate

With a build plate temperature range of 20 - 140 °C, you can be confident of reliable first-layer adhesion with a wide range of materials.

20 - 140 °C heated glass build plate

Build plate heat-up time

The build plate heat-up time relates to how fast it can reach the print-ready temperature.

< 4 minutes (from 20 to 60 °C)

Operating ambient temperature

This Ultimaker 3D printer operates best in locations between these temperatures.

15 - 32 °C (59 - 90 °F)

Non-operating temperature

This Ultimaker 3D printer can be safely stored or left inactive at these temperatures.

0 - 32 °C (32 - 90 °F)
