Earlier this year, we announced that we are working on a major enhancement to the Ultimaker Cura slicing algorithm: the Arachne engine. Arachne is a revolutionary improvement to the way prints are sliced, enabling you to quickly create parts with high quality and strong walls. The first beta received an overwhelmingly positive response – and we couldn’t have been prouder. To me, the new Arachne engine has been the single most substantial development in the last years for Ultimaker Cura as it eliminates hours of fumbling with line width settings – Neute, Ultimaker Community memberSince its release we’ve reached another significant breakthrough...

Countries have been gathering at the COP26 climate change summit in Glasgow to agree how to slow the global rise in temperatures. 45% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from the ways that we produce and consume our products and food.¹ The way we make and use things needs to change – but what part can 3D printing play? Introducing the circular economy According to the charity, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the circular economy is a model in which “our throwaway economy [is transformed] into one where waste is eliminated, resources are circulated, and nature is regenerated”. It’s based on...
