Ultimaker Essentials launch

Posted · Ultimaker Essentials launch

Today marks the day that the Early access ended and Ultimaker Essentials became open for general access. If you are unfamiliar; Ultimaker Essentials is a package tailored for businesses that enable you to scale your 3D printing solution across your organisation, delivering enterprise-grade stability and control. 


This is quite a big and important milestone for Ultimaker. It is the first time that we launch such a software package and offer the stability and security organisations and their IT departments need. So, what will you be able to expect from Ultimaker Essentials? Following the Early access period we want to kick off launch with some new features: 


Better organisation and user access management. Via the organisation management page in Ultimaker Digital Factory, Ultimaker Essentials enables admins to invite users, give them admin rights, or remove 3D printing access entirely. That way you can control who has access to the 3D printers digitally. 


Firmware firewall. Security is of the utmost importance. A firmware firewall increases your 3D printer's security by allowing only cloud traffic from Ultimaker Digital Factory and blocking uncontrolled access via the local network. This reduces the chance of malicious activity. (this feature is coming soon!)


New verified plugins. Ultimaker Essentials subscribers will enjoy a range of verified plugins for Ultimaker Cura, including the new Teton Simulation Smart Slice.


Service and learning levels. Choose between Light, Standard, and Advanced levels of service and learning to customize Ultimaker Essentials to your business' needs. Access more advanced e-learning courses and increase your support coverage to ramp-up 3D printing adoption and reduce business disruptions.




But that is not all. Ultimaker Essentials is packed with value. What else is in there? It consists of the following platforms and special access:


Ultimaker Cura Enterprise. Ultimaker Cura Enterprise makes software distribution and management easy. Designed to meet your IT department's expectations, distribute a tested, stable, and more secure slicing application to anywhere employees need to work – with reduced risk to your infrastructure. Ultimaker Cura Enterprise will follow a lower update frequency. 


Ultimaker Digital Factory. The Ultimaker Digital Factory provides powerful cloud-based tools for easy remote management of Ultimaker 3D printers, teams, and software. Now you can deliver a scalable 3D printing workflow that drives innovation across your network.


Ultimaker Marketplace. Empower users to 3D print the way they want through a controlled version of Ultimaker Marketplace. Only verified plugins and third-party material profiles are allowed.
