Is Enterprise 4.10.0 equal to Cura 5.1.0

Posted · Is Enterprise 4.10.0 equal to Cura 5.1.0

Hey @awparker,


Welcome to the forum 🚀.


There is quite a difference between Cura Enterprise and Cura 5.1

It is included in an Essentials Subscription https://ultimaker.com/software/ultimaker-essentials
It should come with the purchase of an Ultimaker Printer or you can buy it with a reseller. 

If you already have Essentials you can read more about it here, and find the download link. 

The Enterprise version is mainly for business purposes and should fit the security standard for most businesses. In this case that means more limitations on the kind of plug-ins you can side load. The enterprise also comes with an MSI that can be rolled out by most IT departments in bigger companies. 

The Enterprise version receives less updates, so you will not have access to the latest improvents like the community members. In this case you'll miss out on the Variable Linewdith introduced in Cura 5.0. For that to be rolled out in enterprise you'll have to wait. 

I hope this answers your questions!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
