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. And this maintains a higher level of security and stability of your IT infrastructure. Plus, gain access to Ultimaker Essentials-only plugins such as Teton Simulation's Smart Slice

 

Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy.  No matter the size of your team, upskill application engineers, 3D printer operators, and IT admins with expert e-learning to achieve your team's success potential. Access our full Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy course library of Associate and Professional* knowledge – with certification exams for each role.

    Hi @Desprinzla, thank you for your message. And thanks, we think you are nice too! 🙂

    On this website (at the bottom) you can compare different software plans and you can see that you can use the digital library for free for up to 5 projects, with 20 files per project. Hope this helps and is enough to get you started! Good luck!

    I found something in the Ultimaker site called "Ultimaker Personal" which looks interesting, just not sure how to activate it or how to share printers in my account with other Personal users. Can anyone explain how this is supposed to work?

     

    Detailed subscription overview – Ultimaker Support

     

    Ultimaker Personal

    Individuals or home users will unlock the features of the Personal plan by simply connecting an Ultimaker printer to the Ultimaker Digital Factory.

    Users can gain access to the full Ultimaker Personal offering by having an Ultimaker printer sync'd, or shared to their Ultimaker Account.

    Users on a Personal plan have access to the Digital Library with personal use features. The Digital Library will be limited to 5 private projects.

    Sharing printers and forming teams is possible with other Ultimaker Personal users. You cannot share and form teams with users that are on an organizational subscription (Essentials, Professional or Excellence).

    hi @Desprinzla,

     

    It seems like you have only uploaded non-printable files like STL and 3MF. In order to print a file directly from the library, it must be a printable format like G-Code or UFP. You can generate these using Ultimaker Cura and upload them to the library, or use the direct integration of Ultimaker Cura 4.9 with the library (currently available for everyone with a subscription, but soon also available for everyone with at least 1 connected Ultimaker printer). Once you have uploaded such files a print button will appear (see attached image).

    Hi @jkcz,

     

    Activating Ultimaker Personal is very easy! All you need to do is have at least one compatible Ultimaker printer (Ultimaker 3, S3, S5 or 2+ Connect) linked to your account in the Digital Factory. You can do this by clicking the "add printer" button in Digital Factory and follow the on-screen steps. Once you have done that, options like printer sharing (via teams) and the library become available automatically. If you don't have an Ultimaker printer yourself, but for example a friend has, they can also share this printer with you via a team (using an email invitation), and once you accept that invitation the features become available as well.

     

    Hope this helps!

     

    Chris
