Duplicator 5S - Steel ExoFrame


The Duplicator 5S is one of the largest desktop 3D printers in the world! Unique in size and speed, the Duplicator 5S is a heavy duty workhorse. Boasting a massive build envelope of 305mm x 205mm x 575mm (~ 12" L x 8" W x 23" H) this printer will easily find it's place in the workshops of professional model builders, architects, and your average serial prototyper.






The Duplicator 5S is the largest machine that Wanhao makes. High speed meets high build volume. Featured in all Duplicator 5 series printers is the fastest known extruder system in 3D printing...the Bowden extruder setup prints at speeds in excess of 300mm/s. These speeds are complemented by a built-in cooling fan designed to minimize warping and improve extrusion layering. Also standard is a large (16mm) Z-Axis threaded rod which allows for sturdier vertical movements. The circuitry and electronics found in the Duplicator 5S are industrial quality to ensure long life and performance. The Duplicator 5S comes with a custom Wanhao mainboard, custom rotary dial touch controller/LCD/SD Card combo, and thread-locked stepper motors.

One year after this machine's original release Wanhao improved the Steel ExoFrame to provide the machine more stability while weighing less. The improved enclosure allows for ultra fast build speeds with a taller build capability than any other desktop printer under $10,000.00. The LCD menu panel, rotary touch dial, and SD Card slot are also located at waist height when the machine is placed on a table-top or desk. This arrangement allows for a more convenient menu viewing angle and controls access (no more straining your back to get live menu reads!). The powder-coated frame is currently only available in Blue.

Lastly, the most significant improvement for the Duplicator 5S line was the transition from reliance on the included Wanhao Maker slicing software to an "open-source" compatibility firmware platform. Intermediate level users will find installation of slicing software to be easy and straightforward...from software download to build commencement may take as little as 25 minutes.

This model is recommended for Hard-Core Prototypers, Architects, and Engineers.
