Ultimaker has launched its Ultimaker Cloud platform, developed to support a professional 3D printing workflow. The Ultimaker Cloud is said to simplify the user workflow and ensure compatibility with a wide variety of software applications and materials. The open strategy of the platform enables key industry partners, such as leading CAD providers and material manufacturers, to integrate with Ultimaker Cloud. These integrations are said to provide users with a hassle-free, reliable and seamless 3D printing experience. Ultimaker Cloud will be available together with Ultimaker Cura 4.0, which features an updated user interface.

The platform supports remote 3D printing by allowing print jobs to be sent to network-enabled Ultimaker printers anywhere in the world as well as monitored. Optimal user settings are stored in the cloud to be retrieved at any location, on any computer. Users have unlimited access to the Marketplace, including print profiles configured by material experts to help choose the ideal material for an application. Optimized settings for the best results are automatically populated in Ultimaker Cura. Users can also offer feedback to contributors and the community by rating their experience with the plugins they have used.
