Installing Smart Slice

Steps to install Smart Slice for Ultimaker Cura Enterprise, Ultimaker Cura, and non-Cura users

Ultimaker Cura Enterprise Users

At this time, there is a known issue in Cura Enterprise preventing successful installations of plugins. We recommend using the following steps in Ultimaker Cura 4.6.2:

  1. Open Cura and sign in with your Ultimaker Essentials account
  2. Click the Marketplace button.
  3. In the Marketplace, select Smart Slice from the Plugins list and click the Install button.
  4. Close and then open Cura. This completes the installation.

Ultimaker Cura Users

  1. Smart Slice officially supports Cura 4.6.x. Download a 4.6.x version here and install. Cura 4.7.x is unofficially supported.
  2. Download the Smart Slice plugin. Click here to download.

  3. Open Cura 4.6.x and drag the Smart Slice plugin file (.curapackage) into the Cura UI. See video below.
  4. Close and then open Cura. This completes the installation.

Non-Cura Users

If you are not currently using Cura and want to try Smart Slice, simply follow the instructions above for Ultimaker Cura Users. If you are interested in enterprise features, we strongly encourage that you consider Ultimaker Essentials (which includes Cura Essentials).
