The speed of 3D print development over the past few years has frustrated and excited in equal measure. No one would deny the compelling vision presented by a technology that offers the chance to essentially manufacture on demand or the prototyping opportunities enabled by low cost desktop 3D printers.

Year on year, 3D printing is becoming more capable. With the ability to meet the needs of applications more reliably and to create in-house end-use parts, this technology now has the opportunity to simplify the supply chain.

Critics of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, have long cited the technology’s reliance on plastic filament as the primary print material, and it would seem that - with the global focus on reducing plastic wastage – they have a point.

Leading 3D printer manufacturer Ultimaker today announced the availability of Cura Connect within Ultimaker Cura, the seamless print management software solution that helps to prepare files for digital fabrication. New functionality within Ultimaker Cura enables users to manage an array of Ultimaker 3D printers, creating an accessible solution for prototyping, tooling and small-scale production. Cura Connect is now available for free through a firmware update and allows users to immediately take advantage of optimising output from Ultimaker 3 printers, saving time and maximising efficiency.

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.
