Ultimaker has announced the launch of Ultimaker Cloud. That’s a cloud platform designed to support the professional 3D print workflow. This makes it possible to remotely print 3D and backup user settings for remote access.

In addition, it should make the workflow easier for the user and compatible with a wide range of software applications and materials. For industrial partners, such as leading CAD suppliers and material manufacturers, it will be possible to integrate with Ultimaker Cloud. For users, this means that they can benefit from a hassle-free, reliable and seamless 3D printing experience, according to the company.

Features

Ultimaker Cloud comes up with various cloud services. This gives the user access to the Marketplace, which contains print profiles configured by material experts from leading brands. Within the Marketplace there is the possibility to find the best material for a specific application. The optimized settings for this material are automatically supplemented in Cura.

It also gives users access to Marketplace reviews, allowing them to give feedback on the plugins they have used. And with remote printing, it’s possible to send print jobs to Ultimaker printers worldwide. The tasks can also be monitored, so that users are kept informed of the processes.

Finally, the optimal user settings are stored in the cloud. These can then be retrieved from any location and on any computer.

Availability

“This is an important step in our mission to accelerate the global transition to local, digital production,” said Jos Burger, CEO of Ultimaker. “We have worked hard on this solution together with our worldwide network of software and materials partners. I have no doubt that this will make Ultimaker the preferred solution when it comes to decking 3D printing.”

Ultimaker Cloud will be available from 19 March 2019. Then the launch of Ultimaker Cura 4.0 will also take place. Over time, more functionalities become available to ensure that all users can enjoy the benefits of a new generation of 3D print workflows.
