The occasion is a major milestone for Ultimaker and we couldn’t be more proud. By adopting Ultimaker Essentials, our users will be able to leverage the full power of the Ultimaker ecosystem, which encompasses hardware, materials, and software.
Open for business: Ultimaker Essentials software subscription available now
We are delighted to announce Ultimaker Essentials is now open for general access. Ultimaker Essentials is our package of Ultimaker software tools that enables you to scale a 3D printing platform across your business, delivering enterprise-grade stability and control.
What’s new for Ultimaker Essentials?
Ultimaker Essentials now offers several newly built features. They include:
Better organization and user access management. When it comes to who can 3D print – you decide. Via the organization management page in Ultimaker Digital Factory, Ultimaker Essentials enables admins to invite users, give them admin rights, or remove 3D printing access entirely.
Firmware firewall. A firmware firewall increases your 3D printer's security by allowing only cloud traffic from Ultimaker Digital Factory and blocking uncontrolled access via the local network. This reduces the chance of malicious activity.*
New verified plugins. Ultimaker Essentials subscribers will enjoy a range of verified plugins for Ultimaker Cura, including the new Teton Simulation Smart Slice.
Service and learning levels. Choose between Light, Standard, and Advanced levels of service and learning to customize Ultimaker Essentials to your business' needs. Access more advanced e-learning courses and increase your support coverage to ramp-up 3D printing adoption and reduce business disruptions.
*This feature is coming soon
