Ultimaker Essentials simplifies the integration of Cura into the complex enterprise infrastructure. This subscription-based program brings the tools your 3D printing and IT team need to succeed.
Scale the benefits of 3D printing across your organization with a software subscription that empowers designers and engineers, but that's dedicated to enterprise stability and control.
The simplest and most seamless print preparation experience is now packaged for business. Designed to meet your IT department's expectations, distribute a tested, stable, and more secure slicing application to anywhere employees need to work – with reduced risk to your infrastructure.
Enjoy 3D printing with fewer disruptions
We know that for businesses using 3D printing, productivity is everything. Ultimaker Essentials offers up to 6-hour ticket response times and 24-hour support coverage for your software. And because every business is different, you can choose from three service levels tailored to your needs.
Build a team of 3D printing experts
Empower your team with minimal effort. The Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy lets you train and certify your team members for any role required, fluidly moving through a series of leveled online courses created by experts, for everyone.
Packaged for systems management
As part of your subscription, Ultimaker Cura Enterprise is downloadable in .MSI format, so you or IT can distribute, configure, and manage access across multiple platforms.
Only stable, tested updates
Ultimaker Cura Enterprise receives two updates a year. These are thoroughly tested by our community and ensure the most stable desktop application for the highest levels of continuity. We support updates for 12 months after release (including security patches and bug fixes).
Continuous security improvements
Each release of Ultimaker Cura Enterprise is independently scanned, tested, and analyzed for vulnerabilities. We publish a summary of that report for Ultimaker Essentials customers and we commit to continuously improving security.
Production strength numbers
Set up multiple printers based on your workflow. See an overview of printers, material configurations, print jobs, and firmware versions for easy printer management.
For extra security, the firmware firewall lets you allow only cloud traffic from Ultimaker Digital Factory and block uncontrolled access via the local network (coming late 2020). This reduces the chance of malicious activity or eavesdropping.
Optimize 3D printing efficiency with teams sharing
Manage and share your 3D printers among teams within your business, all with granular control. By controlling who has access to 3D printing resources, you can help teams to optimize their production. For added security, you cannot share printers outside your organization.
Start 3D Printing from anywhere in the world
Whether you're working from home or in the office, send secure print jobs via the cloud to Ultimaker 3D printers on your network. Then stay informed of print progress thanks to remote device monitoring.
Make your printers work harder
Schedule print jobs from a centralized queue for maximum production uptime. Stay informed on print progress, printer status, and reprint from the job history to avoid re-slicing.
Secure and verified plugins only
With the managed Ultimaker Marketplace, users can download plugins to improve their 3D printing workflow. But only verified plugins are available – to increase infrastructure stability and security. This includes plugins exclusive to Ultimaker Essentials subscribers – such as Teton Simulation's Smart Slice.
Indirect plugin installation restricted
Verified plugin installation can only happen through the Marketplace. Installing unofficial and unverified plugins indirectly is restricted for increased protection and your IT department's peace of mind.
Direct support and troubleshooting
If you need assistance, simply log a ticket with our Ultimaker Essentials helpdesk. Get help via email from an Ultimaker technician whenever you need to troubleshoot software-related issues.
Choose from three direct support levels. So now you can receive up to 6-hour response times and 24-hour support coverage. (With Advanced subscription only – see the table below for full details.)
Maximize the value of 3D printing within your organization
The Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy is a flexible learning platform that teaches you the ins and outs of 3D printing, spotlighting its value – whenever, wherever. Courses created by Ultimaker's experts enable you to train your users with leveled, role-specific certifications, ensuring your organization is using 3D printing technology to maximum effect.
