Episode summary

Printing large parts isn't as easy as it sounds. This episode takes a close look at printing as big as possible with your Ultimaker printer. We explore two totally different applications, and explain why those specific settings were set the way they are.

After this episode, you'll know how to set up your Ultimaker Cura in the right way for getting the most out of your Ultimaker printer, using Ultimaker Cura 5, and you can replicate the examples shown in the episode easily by downloading the assets below.

Settings Guide plug-in

We highly recommend that you install the Settings Guide plug-in. It gives you a hover-over detailed explanation of every setting in Ultimaker Cura. Find the plug-in here.

Model and Project files

Below you can download model and project files for all sample applications shown in the episode. All files are 3MF files. The 3D model file contains only the part (STL) and can be opened in Cura for any printer type. The project files are also 3MF files, but contain the tunings in settings that we showed during the episode, available for all Ultimaker printers.
