The Ultimaker S5 uses fused filament fabrication (FFF) print technology, which is the process of depositing layers of filament one on top of the other.
The build volume - the physical space inside the printer that can be used for printing - is 13 x 9.4 x 11.8 inches.
Our printer has a dual extrusion print head and swappable print cores (it can print in two colors.) Currently, our printer has an AA 0.4 and a BB 0.4 print head. Both print to a resolution of 200-20 microns.
The Ultimaker S5 runs on the Ultimaker Cura software platform, which is necessary to “slice” (prepare) the objects to be printed. Ultimaker Cura is available for free at https://ultimaker.com/software/ultimaker-cura

Upload a file to be printed on our 3D printer. File must be in .stl format.
The maximum printable area of the 3D printer is 13 x 9.4 x 11.8 inches. If your file needs to be resized or if there are other concerns about the quality of the print a staff member will contact you to discuss options before printing begins. Not all colors are available at all times. If the color you choose isn’t available a staff member will contact you to discuss options. There may be long queues to use the 3D printer and as such the library cannot guarantee print times. A staff member will contact you when your item is finished printing. Printed items cost $0.10 a gram. Before printing begins a staff member will contact you with a cost estimate.
All submissions must follow the Davenport Public Library's 3D Printer Policy which can be found within the Makerspace Policy
