Will Cura ever/Does Cura support Lulzbot Printers?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
