Ultimaker Essentials enables businesses to centrally manage and distribute an enterprise version of Ultimaker Cura throughout the organization, with higher stability and a higher level of security. Ultimaker Cura Enterprise is designed to meet your IT department's expectations to distribute a tested, stable, and more secure slicing application to your employees – with reduced risk to your company’s infrastructure. As part of your Ultimaker Essentials subscription, Ultimaker Cura Enterprise is downloadable in .MSI format, so you or your IT department can distribute, configure, and manage access across multiple platforms. Ultimaker Cura Enterprise receives two updates a year, and these are thoroughly tested by the Ultimaker community and ensured to be the most stable desktop application for the highest levels of continuity. Ultimaker supports updates for 12 months after release (including security patches and major bug fixes), and each release of Ultimaker Cura Enterprise is independently scanned, tested, and analyzed for vulnerabilities.

Install and optimize a 3D printing workflow that drives innovation across your network and maximizes the efficiency of the 3D printing process and your 3D printing resources, like the Ultimaker S5 3D Printer and Ultimaker Materials.


Manage and control your 3D printing workflow to effectively scale up your organization’s 3D printing output with the Ultimaker Digital Factory, which 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 Digital Factory gives you all the tools you need to run a professional 3D printing operation with features like user access management, team sharing, secure data transfer, and firewalled printers so you can maintain more control and efficiency. With Ultimaker Essentials, you can innovate with the Ultimaker Digital Factory with more confidence. 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 or eavesdropping. When it comes to who can 3D print with your company’s devices–you decide. Through the organization management page, Ultimaker Essentials lets administrators invite users, give them admin rights, remove 3D printing access entirely, and share 3D printers among teams within your business with granular control. By controlling who has access to 3D printing resources, you can help teams to optimize their production. For added security, you cannot share printers outside your organization.

Manage 3D printers through the Ultimaker Digital Factory to maximize productivity at scale. Gain an overview of multiple machines, start a print job remotely, or queue print jobs for optimal production output. You can set up multiple 3D printers based on your workflow and see an overview of printers, material configurations, print jobs, and firmware versions for easy printer management. Whether you're working from home, or in the office, send secure print jobs via the cloud to Ultimaker 3D printers on your organization’s network, and then stay informed of print progress thanks to remote device monitoring. Schedule print jobs from a centralized queue for maximum production uptime and to stay informed on print progress, printer status, and even reprint from the job history to avoid re-slicing.

Choose from two levels of service and learning to tailor Ultimaker Essentials to your business. Access more advanced e-learning courses and increase your support coverage to ramp-up 3D printing adoption and reduce business disruptions.


Tailor your organization’s 3D printing experience with a catalog of verified plugins for Ultimaker Cura Enterprise and material-specific print profiles to optimize your print preparation workflow, and unlocking new applications for 3D printing. With the managed Ultimaker Marketplace, users can download plugins to improve their 3D printing workflow. But only verified plugins are available – to increase infrastructure stability and security. This includes Ultimaker Essentials-only plugins – such as Teton Simulation's Smart Slice. Verified plugin installation can only happen through the Marketplace. Installing unofficial and unverified plugins indirectly is restricted for increased protection and your IT department's peace of mind.
