Ultimaker Cloud will be available March 19th 2019 together with Ultimaker Cura 4.0, which features an updated user interface.

Future ready cloud platform designed to support the 3D printing workflow

The rapid adoption of 3D printing increases the need for a platform solution that simplifies the user workflow and ensures compatibility with a wide variety of software applications and materials. The open strategy of Ultimaker enables key industry partners, such as leading CAD providers and material manufacturers, to integrate with Ultimaker Cloud. These integrations will provide even more value for users, resulting in a hassle-free, reliable, and seamless 3D printing experience.

Ultimaker Cloud now offers:

Backups: Ideal user settings are kept available in the cloud, and can be retrieved at any location, on any computer.
Marketplace: Exclusive access to print profiles configured by material experts from leading brands. Registered users can browse the Marketplace, choose the ideal material for an application, and optimized settings for the best results are automatically populated in Ultimaker Cura.
Marketplace ratings: Users can offer useful feedback to plugin contributors and the community by rating their experience with the plugins they have used.
Remote printing: Print jobs can be sent to network-enabled Ultimaker printers from anywhere in the world, as well as monitored so that users can stay informed of processes.

Jos Burger, CEO at Ultimaker: “Ultimaker Cloud forms the foundation for future value propositions provided by Ultimaker and key industry partners. This is a crucial next step in our journey to speed up the world’s transition to local digital manufacturing. I have no doubt that our enabling platform, formed with our global network of software and material partners, makes Ultimaker the preferred solution in the desktop space.”
