Does Ultimaker Cura support imperial units?

Ultimaker Cura does not support imperial units (inches) out of the box. There is however a plugin available through the marketplace that automatically converts models loaded into Ultimaker Cura from inches to metric.


Installing and using the plugin

The name of the plugin is 'Barbarian units' and can be found directly in the Ultimaker marketplace.

  1. Open the Ultimaker Marketplace in Ultimaker Cura or visit the marketplace directly via your web browser.
  2. Install the 'Barbarian units' plugin and restart Ultimaker Cura.
  3. Imported models with 'inches' as measurement unit will now automatically be converted to the metric unit (mm) and scaled correctly.
