Ultimaker launches Ultimaker Essentials, a new software solution created to aid companies in overcoming barriers in the adoption of additive manufacturing. Ultimaker Essentials enables companies to incorporate 3D printing in existing IT infrastructures and allows for distribution and updating of 3D printing software.

The paid subscription-based software offering addresses some IT pain points, including the need for improved management across workflows and the knowledge gap that exists in the manufacturing industry, according to the company.

Ultimaker Essentials ensures updates and plugins are rolled out across users in an organization at the same time. This streamlines the process, providing better control across multiple 3D printers in an organization.

Ultimaker Essentials also includes a new direct support function and a catalog of verified plugins to help scale 3D printing outputs. Subscribing to Ultimaker Essentials provides organizations with an enterprise grade solution for adopting a full 3D printing infrastructure.

As part of the Ultimaker Essential package, users have access to three eLearning courses from the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, which also launches now. The Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy helps professionals overcome these barriers with curated and developed content catered specifically to the jobs of today.

Courses in the Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy, ranging from novice to expert level, will also be available separate from Ultimaker Essentials.
