Locations & Availability

TEC2By reservation only: please submit Innovation Co-Lab's reservation request form

When making a reservation with the Ultimaker S5s, you must provide your own filament. Please note that the Ultimaker S5 uses 2.85mm filament.

What to Bring

When you make a reservation on the Ultimaker S5s, you'll need to bring your own filament.

When your reservation begins, you'll only be able to print to the printer from 3DPrinterOS. There, you can slice a .STL file for printing, or generate a .gcode file on Cura. You can export .STL files from your favorite CAD program or from websites like Thingiverse.

Once your part has printed, you'll need to manually remove it from the Ultimaker S5 bed and press the green check mark to confirm it's been removed before you can send a new print.

Pro Tips
  • Print Bed Size: (W x D x H): 330 x 240 x 300 mm (13 x 9.4 x 11.8 in) 
  • Make sure the bottom of your file is actually flat and oriented parallel to the print bed. 
  • Bed Adhesion like a Brim or Raft keep your file stuck to the bed. Don’t print without them unless you know what you’re doing. 
  • If you slice your file in Cura, you can enable Tree Supports. 
  • PLA prefers to cut more than abrade. This means that sandpaper doesn’t work as well. Use deburring tools or cabinet scrapers to smooth out the edges and faces, respectively. 
  • What is the significance of the printer’s name?
    • The prefix shows where the printer is located. 
      TEC – Technology Engagement Center / Telcom 
      Ruby – Rubenstein Arts Center 
      Lilly – Lilly Library 
      The letter/number combo shows where it is on the shelf. 
      You’ll have to pick up your print from wherever the printer is located. 
  • Why can’t I see any printers to send my print to?
    • Make sure that your file is sliced for the Ultimaker S5s. If your job is sliced for an Ultimaker S3 or Ultimaker 3 then you can’t print it to an Ultimaker S5, so it won't show up.
