  • I am missing this product and features without cloud connectivity.
    We are maintaining everything within our local network and there is no reason for external connection.

  • Hi Kai,

    Ultimaker is working to a Cloud first workflow. This means our cloud platform will be developed and maintained as a priority. Of course not everyone will be able to, or want to use the cloud. Therefore there ill always be a way to workk on a local network, as well as use an offline workflow .
