ltimaker, the desktop 3D printer giant from the Netherlands, just announced a new version of its free, open-source slicing software, Cura, which is the most popular application in the world to prepare digital models to be 3D printed. Rather than a couple of tweaks and upgrades, Ultimaker promises Cura 5.0 makes the impossible possible when it comes to unique applications in design, architecture, engineering, and metal 3D printing.

Ultimaker CEO Jürgen von Hollen says “companies that have looked at 3D printing before and thought it was not ready, now it’s time to look again.”

If you’re already looking for the download button, hold on, it’s still in beta testing. But you can download the beta version and take it for a spin.
