Cura 3.0 and Cura Connect announced!

September 27, 2017

Ultimaker has announced that the tew Cura 3.0 will open doors for Solidworks and Siemens NX plugins for seamless workflow as well as the much sought after print management with Cura Connect.

 

Ultimaker Cura 3.0

The next version of the free, powerful slicing software is no ordinary one. Here’s a taste of what to expect:

  • Updated interface. You’ll notice a clearer look and feel, plus choosing your settings is now more intuitive
  • Open for more plugins. Ultimaker-curated plugins create a seamless workflow with other software, including SolidWorks and Siemens NX
  • Improved performance. Ultimaker Cura 3.0 release comes with the usual improvements and fixes

With all the new possibilities opened up by the creation of third-party plugins, the 3.0 version number is the perfect way to mark this new era.

You can download Ultimaker Cura 3.0 from October 17th 2017. We’ll have more detail on the new features and plugins soon.

 

Cura Connect

With Cura Connect, we set out to give users a more efficient way to manage one or multiple 3D printers. Easy queuing and a maintenance schedule make it ideal for maximizing uptime in the office or studio – all you need is one or more network connected Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker Cura.

  • Manage your 3D printers. Group 3D printers, then check progress of your prints and maintenance needs, all in one place on your desktop
  • Print and forget. Intelligent queuing allows you to send multiple print jobs at once and get on with other things
  • Easy to set up. Cura Connect runs on the Ultimaker 3 so there’s no server needed and no complicated setup

 

Cura Connect launches on November 7th 2017. Look out for a firmware update for the Ultimaker 3 – once this is installed you can start using Cura Connect. There will also be a manual and video tutorial to help you make the most of its features
