Why should I purchase the Material Station

If you are a proud owner of a Ultimaker S5, chances are you will be exploring with various types of materials.

The Ultimaker S5 Material Station improves the Ultimaker S5 3D printing workflow and efficiency. With a connected Material Station the Ultimaker S5 features:

Access to up to 6 material spools. Load up to 6 material spools from the front of the Ultimaker S5. The 6 different material bays are shown on the display and the configuration menu on the Ultimaker S5 changes its user interface to reflect this.

NFC Auto Labelling. When a NFC material is loaded into any bay, the material will automatically be read and displayed. Furthermore, the user can easily see on the display towards which extruder the material is loaded to.

Automatic filament switching. When an end of filament situation is detected by the Material Station during printing, the Material Station will automatically switch to the next available material spool of same type. For this reason, we recommend having a back up material spool always loaded towards the same extruder.

Humidity controlled material storage. Reliable humidity-controlled storage chamber maintains the loaded spools in optimum condition.
