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.


Design an object in 3D modeling software

The first thing you’ll need is a 3D model. Just be sure to export your file in either a STL, 3MF or OBJ file format so Cura can understand it.


Import your 3D model file

Within moments, Cura slices your model ready for print. You can preview it, scale it and adjust settings as you’d like.


3D print your model on your Ultimaker

Ready to print? Save the file or print on your Ultimaker 3 directly from Cura. Click Save to File, Save to Removable Drive or Print Over Network.

Ultimaker 3’s integrated system of hardware, software, and materials ensures a smooth, straightforward workflow, not to mention unparalleled results. The innovative dual-core print head features print cores for build and support materials, and the auto-nozzle lift system results in reliable, intricate dual-extrusion prints.
