Ultimaker 3 and Cura 2.3


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker 3 and Cura 2.3


We are now one week into a new era where we launched the Ultimaker 3. This latest addition to our product line is designed to serve professional users who need the reliability our company is known for and steady daily operations with a minimal downtime.

We are confident we will make a big change in the areas where 3D printing is often present, but not accessible for everyone. The Ultimaker 3 features dual extrusion with swappable print cores, active bed leveling and automated nozzle lifting systems, an NFC reader to detect the type of filament you’re using, the Wi-Fi connectivity, and so much more.


If you have an Ultimaker 2+, Ultimaker Original or Ultimaker 2 Go, fret not! We will certainly continue supporting all these excellent machines. Each of our 3D printer models has a unique set of features designed to provide the best 3D printing experience to our wide and diverse range of users, depending on their needs.

Next to the Ultimaker 3, we have also released the new Cura version. Cura 2.3 features a huge list of new, enhanced features, performance improvements and functionality changes, and, as always, it will continue to get even better!

Here is an overview of what’s new. For more details in regard of specific features, we would recommend to download it and give it a test drive yourself!

It also contains a changelog with the more specific information.


  • Multi Extrusion Support
  • Improved Grouping
  • Improved Setting Visibility
  • Improved time estimation
  • Print Weight Estimates
  • More Infill Types
  • Gradual Infill
  • Enhanced Combing
  • Support Material Interface


We hope you are as excited about these updates as we are, and we are curious to hear what you think!
