Update the Ultimaker S5 firmware

Periodically, a new version of the Ultimaker S5 firmware is released. To ensure that your Ultimaker S5 is equipped with the latest features it is recommended to update the firmware regularly. This can be performed on the Ultimaker S5 when connected to a network, or by using a USB stick.

Update over the network

  1. Connect the printer to the network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet in the Network menu.
  2. Go to Preferences > Maintenance > Update firmware.

The Ultimaker S5 will now download the latest firmware from the server and install it. This may take several minutes.

Update the Ultimaker S5 using a USB stick

The Ultimaker S5 firmware can also be updated without an active network connection.

⚠Caution: You risk bricking your printer if you use incorrect firmware files. Ensure you are installing these files to the Ultimaker S5 only.

To update the Ultimaker S5 firmware, take the following steps:

  1. Download the latest Ultimaker S5 firmware files 1 and 2 from the list below.
  2. Save the firmware files on a USB stick.
  3. Insert the USB stick in the USB port on the Ultimaker S5.
  4. Go to Preferences > Maintenance > Update firmware.
  5. The Ultimaker S5 will detect it if there are firmware files on the USB stick. If files are detected, you can select one to start a firmware update.
