Description: Ultimaker Cura is a state-of-the-art slicer application to prepare your 3D models for printing with a 3D printer. With hundreds of settings and hundreds of community-managed print profiles, Ultimaker Cura is sure to lead your next project to a success.
* [Uranium](https://github.com/Ultimaker/Uranium) Cura is built on top of the Uranium framework.
* [CuraEngine](https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine) This will be needed at runtime to perform the actual slicing.
* [PySerial](https://github.com/pyserial/pyserial) Only required for USB printing support.
* [python-zeroconf](https://github.com/jstasiak/python-zeroconf) Only required to detect mDNS-enabled printers

Before make package - copy arduino to cura-build/
Personal: I prefer 3.6 over the latest. Very stable and better UI. I tried to learn to make this into a portable app but I am way over my head. I would really like to see this app for Papps. I am not sure if it is possible to be portable.
All I have done is downloaded the source file and extracted the installer.exe but I just don't understand at all what to do to get the app to run portably.
The info above in the "other" section is to give some more context on what type of program Cura is if not familiar.
