Ultimaker has launched this Ultimaker Essentials, a brand new subscription-based software solution. The new software is aimed at helping companies overcome barriers in the adoption of additive manufacturing technologies.
Ultimaker Essentials as a paid subscription-based software solves several major IT-pain points, including the need to improve management across workflows, especially by centralizing the distribution of 3D printing software, ensuring updates and plugins are rolled out across all users at the same time, and streamlining overall printing processes across entire organizations with distributed 3D printers.
The software also includes a brand-new direct support function and a catalog of verified plugins to help effectively scale 3D printing outputs.
As one of the core pillars of Industry 4.0, 3D printing is an essential part of progressive business solutions and processes,” said Jos Burger, CEO at Ultimaker. “In the wake of the recent pandemic, companies need to quickly realize, if they haven’t already, that global supply chains and manufacturing workflows can be easily disrupted. The transition to digital distribution and local manufacturing is now imminent and more imperative than ever. The Ultimaker Essentials launch is targeted at addressing these gaps and removing the final barriers in the adoption of 3D printing.”
As part of the Ultimaker Essentials package, users gain access to three eLearning courses from Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, which also launched this week. Ultimaker’s 2019 3D Printing Sentiment Index found that 69 percent of the professionals surveyed cited knowledge as the most frequent barrier, of which, 40 percent brought up a lack of necessary skillsets to properly leverage 3D printing.
Courses in the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, which range from novice to expert level, will also be available separate from the Ultimaker Essentials software subscription.
“We are thrilled to roll-out the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy as a premier platform for learning, which will significantly increase in value over time,” said Nuno Campos, CMO at Ultimaker. “This is only the first step of our program as in Q4 we will expand the Academy by releasing multiple role- and topic-based courses, which will lead to additional certifications. We look forward to the continued adoption and education of 3D printing and are excited to help businesses uncover how 3D printing can benefit their business now and in the future.”
Subscribing to Ultimaker Essentials provides organizations with an enterprise-grade solution for adopting a full 3D printing infrastructure.
