Cura Slicer by Ultimaker for 3D printers test and review

0,00 inkl. Mwst.

The classic slicer program with the most essential functions and an open system for all FDM 3D printers on the market which allow external slicer software.



Ulti­mak­er is one of the lead­ing and best-known 3D print­ing brands with the Ulti­mak­er 2 and new Ulti­mak­er 3. It was one of the first com­pa­nies to offer a com­plete solu­tion with their devices and asso­ci­at­ed slicer pro­gram. Although the soft­ware is most suit­able for the manufacturer’s machines, it also works great with oth­er 3D print­ers. In this review we show you what the Cura Slicer by Ulti­mak­er offers.

Provided functionality

First you see a sim­ple 3D print­ing plat­form marked by blue bor­ders. Files are easy to retrieve using the but­ton on the top left and save with the mem­o­ry icon next to it. In addi­tion, Ultimaker’s Cura Slicer auto­mat­i­cal­ly sets sup­port func­tions and print set­tings mak­ing it extreme­ly sim­ple (see pic­ture).

You can rotate, scale and mir­ror the 3D mod­el using the 3 object icons in the low­er left cor­ner of the pic­ture. Fur­ther func­tions for the view can be reached via the but­ton on the top right through which the object turns e.g. trans­par­ent or with an X‑Ray view.

The view of indi­vid­ual lay­ers on the mod­el makes it pos­si­ble to detect over­hangs and pre­cise infor­ma­tion which can also be found via the but­ton on the top right. The over­hang fea­ture helps to opti­mize the object’s align­ment and increase print qual­i­ty.

Conclusion of Cura Slicer by Ultimaker

The soft­ware is the most clas­sic slicer pro­gram for 3D print­ers. It allows all oper­a­tions, func­tions and views of an object with­out com­plex oper­a­tions as well as for free. If you do not get a slicer for your own 3D print­er, you should def­i­nite­ly try the Cura Slicer by Ulti­mak­er. For those who e.g. have Flash­forge 3D print­ers with their Flash­print Slicer pro­gram already have a good soft­ware to check out first.

After all the test­ing it is ulti­mate­ly a mat­ter of taste which pro­gram you choose. The soft­ware Cura cov­ers all nec­es­sary and help­ful func­tions. Feel free to tell us your opin­ion and favorite Slicer Soft­ware via the com­ment sec­tion below or the con­tact form.
