To start the installation of Cura, download it first. After downloading, open the installer and run the installation wizard to complete the installation. To make sure Cura can run on your computer, we recommend checking the system requirements described below.

Operating systems

  • Windows Vista or higher, 64 bit. 32 Bit supported up to Cura 2.3.
  • Mac OSX 10.7 or higher, 64 bit. Cura 2.6 and above require Mac OS 10.11 or higher.
  • Ubuntu 14.04 or higher, 64 bit.

System requirements

  • OpenGL 2 compatible graphics chip, OpenGL 4.1 for 3D Layer view.
  • Intel Core 2 or AMD Athlon 64 or newer
  • 205 MB available hard disk space

Note: Although these are the minimum requirements, we recommend using better machines to use Cura with heavy models.
