Software update: Cura 4.13

Spread the love

Cura was developed by Ultimaker to make 3d printing as easy and streamlined as possible. Cura contains everything you need to be able to print a 3d file. It works with all Ultimaker printers, as well as those from RepRap and Printrbot. Cura is easy to install and contains the latest firmware as well as the calibration files for the 3d printer. Version 4.13 of Cura has been released and the following changes and improvements have been made to it:

Sync material profiles

With Ultimaker Cura 4.13, we give you access to a seamless material experience for Ultimaker Material Alliance materials – with the ease of use you’ve come to expect from Ultimaker materials. You can easily synchronize your Material Alliance profiles with your S-line Ultimaker hardware, at the click of a button.

New print profile

A new print profile with 0.3mm layer height for PLA Tough PLA, PVA and BAM for Ultimaker S-line printers

3MF thumbnail

Show the model in the thumbnail of a .3mf file, contributed by fieldOfView

fill density

When printing with a 100% infill the infill pattern will change to ZigZag for all Ultimaker print profiles

User login authentication

We’ve streamlined the user login authentication by removing any restrictions, especially for strict enterprise-level IT requirements.
