Personally I'm very excited to share with you that we've been very busy preparing for the new Ultimaker showcase event that will be broadcasted tomorrow April 21st, at 4pm CEST / 10am EDT. When you join us you can discover first hand what the new Cura engine will be capable of and you can hear from some renowned users how they have experienced using it. Myself, and other Ultimaker experts will be in the chat to answer your questions! 


Another reason why I'm excited is because I've personally produced this showcase event, so if you are curious what else I'm up to nowadays, come check it out and say hi in the chat! It would mean a lot! 


Worried you might forget? Sign up here and we'll send you a notification before it starts! 

You are in total control of your own agenda and planning? Tune in or subscribe to our youtube channel to join the premiere tomorrow live! The premiere is already listed.. 


See you there!!

It would be nice if you focused on items that were broken before starting another project.

It would be nice if you could be a bit more concrete.

A lot of the stuff in the showcase is about Cura, and we have a pretty decent balance between fixing existing issues and introducing new features.

Well, that's a firmware issue, which is an entirely different team. As you might imagine, we also started these changes a bit longer than 10 hours ago 😉

    • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
      In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

    • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
      The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
      So what’s new?
      The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
      The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
      The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

      The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
      Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
      Curious to see the S7 in action?
      We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
      It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

    • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
      Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
      We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
