Will Cura ever/Does Cura support Lulzbot Printers?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Will Cura ever/Does Cura support Lulzbot Printers?

I have a few UM3s and a UM3E, but I was looking at getting a Lulzbot Taz 6 for its larger print volume.

I would like to keep using Cura as my main slicing program seeing as it is so great and easy to use;

although I checked the "Add Printer" list of supported printers and noticed Lulzbot is not there, not even there older machines.

 

Are there any plans to add support for them?

Ultimaker will only “passively” support 3rd party printer profiles. If someone contributes them, they will be included.

 

Lulzbot are actively working on their version of Cura, but seem to have stopped actively sharing back their changes, so the profiles they have made are not (yet?) put back in Ultimaker Cura.

You can use your Lulzbot, assuming it is a "normal FDM Bowden printer, by adding a Custom printer

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
