Build Volume

The build volume for the Ultimaker 5S is 330 mm x 240 mm X 300 mm  

(12.99 in x 9.44 in x 11.81 in)

We recommend avoiding prints that use the entire surface of the printer's build platform. 


Slicer Software

The UltiMaker S5 printers are accessible in the  3DPrinterOS cloud-based 3D printer management software. All UAB students, faculty, and staff who complete required 3D printer training will have remote access to the printers managed in 3DPrinterOS.

UltiMaker-flavored Cura is also available as slicing software for the UltiMaker printers.  The software can be downloaded from the UltiMaker Cura website.
