Ultimaker Provides Seamless Workflow Integration for 3D Printing with Ultimaker Cura 3.0
Leading 3D printer manufacturer Ultimaker today released Ultimaker Cura 3.0, a new version of its slicing software which enhances the performance and accessibility of Ultimaker’s hardware, software, materials and services. Ultimaker Cura 3.0 is open for third-party plugins providing a seamless workflow integration between industry-standard CAD applications.

In September 2017, Ultimaker revealed a new software-centric strategy, announcing the release of regular software upgrades that will continuously enhance the existing hardware. This makes Ultimaker a future-ready solution with an extended ecosystem that continues to deliver greater results for users and businesses over time. The first release as part of this renewed strategy is Ultimaker Cura 3.0.

The key benefits of Ultimaker Cura 3.0 include:
  • CAD integration. Providing seamless workflow integration between industry-standard CAD applications such as SolidWorks and Siemens NX. 
  • Updated UI and UX design. New interface with a cleaner look and feel, a new color scheme, and intuitive sliders to control print settings. 
  • New skin settings. The new skin settings (Skin Removal Width, Skin Expand Distance, Extra Skin Wall Count) result in less strings, better top details, and faster prints. 
  • Faster start-up. Start-up speed has been cut in half. That means less time waiting and more time printing. 

Paul Heiden, Senior VP of Product Management at Ultimaker: “The option for our partners to link their plugins with Ultimaker Cura 3.0 unlocks endless possibilities for professionals to fully make use of their 3D printers. Businesses can now create new workflows completely tailored to their specific products. The solutions created by our partners will offer us valuable insights to the desires and needs of end-users, which will help to guide us in the continuous innovation of our entire ecosystem, from hardware to software, materials and services.”
