Ultimaker Essentials software subscription available now

Ultimaker, the global leader in desktop 3D printing, announces the general access of Ultimaker Essentials. Ultimaker Essentials is the enterprise package of Ultimaker software tools that enables professional organizations to scale a 3D printing platform across their business, delivering stability and control.

Ultimaker Essentials now offers several newly built features. They include:

Better organization and user access management. Via the organization management page in Ultimaker Digital Factory, Ultimaker Essentials enables admins to invite users, give them admin rights, or remove 3D printing access entirely.

Firmware firewall. 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.*

New verified plugins. Ultimaker Essentials subscribers will enjoy a range of verified plugins for Ultimaker Cura, including the new Teton Simulation Smart Slice.

Service and learning levels. Choose between Light, Standard, and Advanced levels of service and learning to customize Ultimaker Essentials for professional needs. It offers access to more advanced e-learning courses and increased support coverage to ramp-up 3D printing adoption and reduce business disruptions.

*This feature is coming soon
