More 3D file formats. Ultimaker Cura 4.3 is compatible with even more 3D file formats than before, allowing you to integrate CAD software, 3D scanning software, and 3D modeling software into your workflow with ease. Natively open Collada, GLTF, OpenCTM, and PLY formats, to name a few. Downloading plugins from the Ultimaker Marketplace brings in support for many more. Open more 3D file formats in this version, including Collada.
Align faces to the build plate.
Orienting your models with the rotation tool or the lay flat tool can be a hassle with complex geometries. This new time-saving feature lets you select a face of your model to rest on the build plate, so you can get the orientation you need quickly and easily. Align faces to the build plate easier than before. Support infill/interface line directions. Improve reliability with more precise control over certain aspects of your print.
Choose the angle that support-infill and interfaces print at, thanks to a contribution from vgribinchuck. Input a set of angles you want lines generated at, and these will be placed sequentially throughout your 3D print.
