Setting up the build plate on your Ultimaker S5

To perform the setup steps, turn on the printer with the power switch at the back. You will first be asked to select your preferred language; after this, the welcome setup will appear on the touchscreen. Follow the steps on the touchscreen and described on the next pages of this user manual.

Tip: The language on the printer can always be changed by navigating to Preferences > Settings > Language.

Confirm the glass plate is installed

For the first use, it is recommended to print with the materials that were delivered with the printer: Tough PLA and PVA. In this step of the welcome setup, you must confirm that you have installed the glass build plate.

A thin layer of glue should be applied to the glass build plate to ensure reliable adhesion.
