Simplify 3D printing with Ultimaker Cura 4.0

  • News

Download Ultimaker Cura 4.0 today and enjoy a brand-new user interface designed to simplify 3D print preparation – whether you’re a beginner or an expert. This release adds integration with Ultimaker Cloud, offering you advanced cloud-based tools to support your 3D printing workflow.

What’s new?

Simplified user interface. Ultimaker Cura’s new user interface accommodates a range of skill levels and workflows. Three stages in the header clearly guide the process: prepare models in the prepare stage, simulate the 3D printing process in the preview stage, and monitor print progress for Ultimaker printers in the monitor stage. Collapsible panels give you easy access to settings, and allow you to focus on your 3D model as needed. Recommended mode enables you to prepare prints quickly and easily, relying on the strength of expert-configured print profiles. Custom mode gives you full control, with the power to adjust over 300 separate slicing settings, and an adjustable panel to keep all your settings visible.

Marketplace. We’ve added the Marketplace to the main interface for easy access to material profiles and plugins. Extra fields have been added to material entries to show support sites, extra lines for product descriptions, and a supplier website link so you can easily purchase material for use with your print profiles.

User account control. Sign into your Ultimaker account directly from the interface, for quick and easy access to Ultimaker Cloud features.

Backups. Work anytime, anywhere. Keep your settings in the cloud, and conveniently retrieve them for use on any computer, whether it’s running Windows, Mac, or Linux. An Ultimaker account and internet connection are required to make and restore backups. For now, five backups are enabled per Ultimaker account.

Remote printing. Send and monitor print jobs from anywhere in the world through Ultimaker Cloud when logged into your account in Ultimaker Cura. For now, one Ultimaker printer can be linked per account. Note: this feature is available for Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker S5 printers running firmware 5.2.
