Ultimaker Materials Station (compatible with Ultimaker S5)
Always-fresh 3D printing materials
Every decision during the Ultimaker S5 Material Station's development was made to deliver materials in optimal condition for 3D printing.
Humidity and dust...the Ultimaker S5 Material Station defeats them both. Its silica gel extracts moisture and automatically regenerates, keeping the fully enclosed chamber below 40% relative humidity – even in outside conditions of up to 70% humidity.
By removing the risk of moisture absorption, the polymer doesn’t degrade over time. The filament is kept pristine for longer as if spool never left its packaging. This results in higher quality prints with a higher print success rate – with less chance of human error.
So that's how materials are handled below the Ultimaker S5. But what about that device on top?
