Note: This Ultimaker Cura Enterprise version contains the improvements of version 4.11, 4.12 and 4.13 combined. The most important changes are listed below, for detailed information per version please visit Github.


Sync material profiles
With Ultimaker Cura 4.13, we give you access to a seamless material experience for Ultimaker Material Alliance materials – with the ease of use you’ve come to expect from Ultimaker materials. You can easily synchronize your Material Alliance profiles with your S-line Ultimaker hardware, at the click of a button.

Infill density
When printing with a 100% infill the infill pattern will change to ZigZag for all Ultimaker print profiles

User login authentication
We’ve streamlined the user login authentication by removing any restrictions, especially for strict enterprise-level IT requirements.


Lightning infill
The new lightning infill setting lets you to print high-quality top layers but is optimized to use less material and increase your production speed. Special thanks to @rburema and @BagelOrb!

Improved top surface quality
We’ve tweaked the Monotonic setting and made adjustments throughout Ultimaker print profiles. This removes occasional scarring on models and improves top surface quality by default.

Improved horizontal print quality
Resulting in reduction of ringing, improving resolution and overall print quality.

App switcher
The new switcher provides a simpler way to navigate and use other Ultimaker applications, including Ultimaker Digital Factory, Ultimaker Marketplace, and Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy. Reporting bugs to Github is now just one click away, and it’s easier to find the application you need.

Faster start-up
We've shaved 10 seconds from Ultimaker Cura's start-up time by optimizing profile data caching.


Monotonic ordering
The new Monotonic top/bottom order setting enables users to print parts with smoother top surfaces. This is especially useful for parts that need good aesthetics, such as visual prototypes. Or for parts that benefit from smooth surfaces, such as those that contact-sensitive components.

Complete UI refresh
Look around and you will notice that we have refreshed over 100 icons throughout Ultimaker Cura. The new icons are designed for clarity – resulting in a simpler and more informative slicing experience. Also, when scaling the Ultimaker Cura window, the UI will adapt, resulting in less visual clutter.

Improved digital library integration
Collaborative workflows using the Digital Library are now simpler. Every user with a cloud-connected Ultimaker 3D printer can access stored projects. And we have added a “Search” function to make finding files easier.

Save materials profiles to USB
Users can now save all third-party material profiles to USB. This feature is for Ultimaker S-line printers only and is especially useful for cloud-connected (or offline) printers.

Notifications for beta and plugin releases
Users can now set notification preferences to alert them to new Ultimaker Cura beta and plug-in releases.

Improve logging of errors in OAuth flow
When helping a user with log-in problems it is easier to see where the OAuth flow goes wrong.
