Will Cura ever come to IOS?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Will Cura ever come to IOS?

Hi, I’m just wondering if Cura will ever come to IOS. I recently switched to an iPad to do my daily stuff, and I can even 3D model on it, but I’ve never been able to find a replacement for Cura, or in fact any IOS or online based slicer. It’s a petty problem, but I find it annoying to do all my work on my iPad, only to have to lug out the laptop, see if it’s charged, wait for Cura to start, then use it for 2 minutes and put it away. I know it would require extensive rewriting, but what if you just did an online version on servers you may already have? Heck, I would even pay for that. I just really want something equivalent to Cura (preferably actual Cura) to be available on an IOS device. Do you have any plans to do this ever, or is it just a lost cause?

It's not very likely. A fair amount of technologies that we use to make Cura are either partially or fully incompatible with IOS. As such, it would require a vast amount of re-work (and subsequently; maintenance) to create an IOS version.

 

Slicing online might be something we will some day look in to, but it shares a number of the problems associated with IOS.

      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.
