Enterprise IT departments cannot always centrally manage distribution 3D printing software. Ultimaker has been developing a new solution to help companies address this issue. Named Ultimaker Essentials, the solution allows for seamless distribution and updating of 3D printing software, once the company has integrated 3D Printing in existing IT infrastructures.
“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 adoption of 3D printing.”
The software solution includes a brand-new direct support function and a catalogue of verified plugins to help effectively scale 3D Printing outputs. Available on paid subscription, Ultimaker Essentials tackles a number of glaring IT pain-points, including the need for improved management across workflows and the knowledge gap that exists in the manufacturing industry.
As part of the Ultimaker Essential package, users have access to three eLearning courses from the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, which also launches today. 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.
The Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy helps professionals overcome these barriers with curated and developed content catered specifically to the jobs of today. Courses in the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, ranging from novice to expert level, will also be available separate from Ultimaker Essentials.
