Overview

The printer is viable for a wide range of educational and industrial 3D printing applications, featuring the latest air management and inductive probing features to provide a smooth and easy printing method for new and advanced learners. It features an easy click-and-print design that can print with more than 280 different materials. It also features dual extrusion for multi-color and multi-material 3D printing applications.

Inductive Plate Sensor with Flexible Build Plate

With its upgraded printing support features, the UltiMaker S7 takes 3D printing to a new level. The printed bed features a flexible build plate featuring PEI coating. It’s a patented design featuring 25 magnets and 4 pins for perfect alignment of the printing objects. Eventually, there is no need for additional glue or adhesives to keep the parts securely in one place. As a result, the S7 makes it a more convenient and time-saving option for printing 3D objects without continuous monitoring. 

Also, the build plate features an inductive sensor that reduces noise and enhances accuracy during the printing process. An automatic tilt compensation feature removes the need for thumbscrew bed calibration. The combination of sensor-based plate and flexible printed beds allows users to print objects accurately unsupervised. 

The UltiMaker S7 also features an environment-friendly integrated air manager. The air manager ensures better air quality and boosts the print results thanks to a fully enclosed build chamber. It can remove up to 95% of ultrafine particles from every print and has a simplistic chamber design and a glass door. 

Flexible Printing Options with Advanced Integrations

The UltiMaker S7 3D printer provides multiple integrations and flexible printing options. It supports 3D printing with more than 280 materials, allowing users to 3D print anything with their desired materials. As a result, it caters to a wide range of applications from the educational to the tech sector. Due to such a versatile printing range, it lets users unlock the potential 3D printing applications in any industrial sector.

Moreover, the printer can seamlessly integrate with the UltiMaker Cura. The integration helps improve workflows by ensuring remote printing. The printer can access Cura, allowing more control and improvised techniques to acquire 3D prints quicker and more efficiently. 

A backward design compatibility feature also allows the S7 3D printer to work flawlessly with the previous printer versions. It can conveniently work with the digital libraries of the S5 printers without needing any reslicing.

The UltiMaker S7 also features an anti-flood sensor to ensure smooth material flow. It avoids potential flooding as the print head can detect any unwanted flooding events. The mechanism features a set of strong magnets to keep print core doors closed, helping maintain a clear and clean printing area.
