Cura Connect is Ultimaker’s latest innovation. It enables you to control, monitor, and configure a group of Ultimaker 3 printers from a single interface, providing an efficient production solution for your office, studio, or work floor.

Streamline your workflow

Spread the workload. Print jobs are shared between a group of printers for efficient, continuous production. If one printer is occupied, other scheduled jobs are assigned to available printers in the group.

Monitor print jobs with ease. All grouped printers are managed using a single interface for maximum ease of use.

Flexible scheduling. When a job is complete, you only need to remove the finished object, confirm removal on the printer, and the next item will print automatically.

Prioritize jobs as needed. Move your print job up in the queue without having to change materials, print cores, or other important considerations.

Prepare for the settings you need. No need to prepare models for a particular printer - Cura Connect will allocate jobs to a printer with matching print cores, materials, colors, build volume and other factors - and if it can’t find a matching printer, it will prompt you to set one up.

Agile and efficient

Scale up your operations. Group multiple printers into a single production workflow, or create several groups for different teams or tasks. If you want to expand your operations later, it is effortless to add extra printers to a group.

Maximize efficiency. Cura Connect monitors your printers and schedules maintenance tasks to keep your hardware in top condition.

Intelligent notifications. Browser notifications will update you about a job’s status. Printer frame lights notify you when and where a printer needs attention.

Ready for the future. Thanks to the embedded system and Wi-Fi connectivity of the Ultimaker 3, new software updates will continuously enhance the features and functionality of the printer to give the most accessible 3D printing experience available.

Get started quickly

No server, no extra software, no complicated setup. Powered by your Ultimaker 3, Cura Connect runs in your web browser. As long as the printer firmware is up to date, it’s ready to go.

Discover Cura Connect. If you already own an Ultimaker 3, Cura Connect is ready for you. Take advantage of continuous production using a single machine, or group extra Ultimaker 3 printers together for a complete 3D printing production solution.

Is there anyway to permanently disable Cura connect? I’m getting tired of the warning messages telling me that my printer configuration is mismatched because I use non-Ultimaker filament.

I don't get any errors like that. Just tell the printer you have pla on the left core manually - just select it in the menus and you slice for pla in cura then no issue. No problem.
