Ultimaker Cura 4.2.1
3 steps to printing a 3D model
Every model you design for print must be translated by Ultimaker Cura into instructions your 3D printer will understand. It does this by slicing your model into thin layers and saving the file ready for printing. Here’s the process in a bit more detail.
The first thing you’ll need is a 3D model. Ultimaker Cura works with STL, OBJ, X3D or 3MF file formats out-of-the-box.
Within moments, Ultimaker Cura slices your model ready for print. You can preview it, scale it and adjust settings as you’d like.
Send print jobs remotely using a network-enabled Ultimaker 3D printer, or save files to a USB stick or SD card.
