Ultimaker announces enterprise software and e-learning platform

Ultimaker is delighted to unveil two new products to help organizations adopt and scale 3D printing – Ultimaker Essentials and Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy.

Ultimaker Essentials is an enterprise-grade package of Ultimaker software platforms that can be centrally deployed throughout the organization, with greater stability and a higher level of security

Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy is an e-learning platform that teaches the ins and outs of 3D printing – from basics to expert knowledge – through flexible online courses

Together, they are designed to help businesses to break down two of the biggest barriers preventing 3D printing adoption – embedding the technology within a secure IT infrastructure and quickly onboarding and upskilling users.

Both products are available now for free early access for a limited time until October 2020.

So, we developed Ultimaker Essentials not only to benefit those who use our 3D printers day-to-day, but for the IT admins and teams responsible for setting up and maintaining a secure, stable infrastructure.
