Cura Download
Cura is a or slicing software or "Slicer" as you would call it.
That means, basically what it does is it takes a File containing your 3D Geometry and converts it into Gcode file, which the printer can read and print out.
The transfer to the printer could happen via SD Card, Memory Stick or over wired or wireless Network.

Installing and getting started
After downloading just execute the file and proceed trough the setup procedure. When finished and starting Cura for the first time, you will be prompted to add a printer. When you want to use the printer in the LAB choose Ultimaker 3
