  1. Hi, I'm one of the developers involved in Connect. As @Smithy indicates, ethernet will always be more stable than wifi. However we're still interested in finding potential problems that are unrelated to wireless technology. Maybe you could share the logs of your printer with us (in a private message if desired)? You can find the option to dump logs to USB in the printer's settings menu. Also, which firmware version are you running? Thanks!
  2. You could extract the API spec from the printer one and paste it into a tool like https://mrin9.github.io/RapiPdf/ and generate a PDF from it. Reason we don't do that is because we ensure this way that the spec is always up-to-date.
  3. From the top of my head, the differences with UM3 are: * Multi-point bed leveling (resulting is better 1st layer adhesion) * Glass door to prevent (most) air draft * Filament flow sensor * Hardened feeder wheel to support abrasive materials (thus supporting the CC Red Print Core) * Trinamic stepper drivers (same as S5), so much quieter while printing * Improved feeder lever (instead of that kinda hard-to-use force push button) * Touch screen interface (after working with it compared to the old click wheel you really don't wanna go back...) * Improved gantry to support the full build volume with both print cores * Integrated power supply (no more messy power brick somewhere around your printer) * Higher EMC class rating due to improved electronics (safer for certain environments) * Stiffer build plate gantry and wider diameter X/Y axis * Improved print head (same as S5, which was an iteration on top of the UM3 head) * Slightly different side panels and screws (cleaner finish) * A UMB port to support possible future hardware add-ons I'll leave it up to the market to decide if this justifies the price point 😛
  4. You might wanna take a peak at the ultimaker.com homepage 😉
  5. There will be a firmware and cloud update very soon that brings the queue controls to the cloud (as they are in Connect)!
  6. Interesting idea. Their APIs are probably very different, so I'll either have to find common denominators and generalize the API responses to an internal model, or create separate plugins (but that adds maintenance burden, especially on the UI part). If I were to add one extra source, which one would you like to see first?
  7. I have updated the plugin numerous times since this thread, notable features are: * Improved search * Pagination * Improved error handling (e.g. when the ThingiVerse API is down) I have just submitted a release (1.3.0, hopefully approved soon) that adds buttons for accessing popular, features, and newest things: Let me know what you want added next!
  8. Yes, that works fine. Cura copies the whole user data folder when upgrading, but leaves the old one intact. So when you start 4.0 back up, all the data is still there.
  9. It's true. We call him Bob.
  10. I have raised the filament flow sensor notifications internally last week. We'll see if this makes the priority list anytime soon.
  11. The Ultimaker App only supports monitoring via the local network. For remote monitoring I suggest you use Cura to send jobs and mycloud.ultimaker.com for remote monitoring (works great on mobile browser). Note that push notifications in the app do work outside of the local network (as we relay them through the cloud).
  12. To get attention from the developers its probably best to report this via https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues.
  13. This is a fair request, I'll make sure it gets on the radar of the relevant people. Although a Cura plugin will not be able to solve this, a small web server talking to Ultimaker Cloud might do the trick. In particular the cluster status endpoint. Note that this requires knowledge of talking to a web API and a cloud connected Ultimaker printer.
  14. Cura uses port 80 (API) and 8080 (camera) to communicate to the printer on the local network. It also uses bonjour (zeroconf) discovery if you want automatic detection.
  15. Hi! Ultimaker uses port 443 (https) on every connection to the cloud. Whitelisting this port on the *.ultimaker.com range should do the trick. If there's other issue with setting it up, please let me know (I'm in the team that develops Ultimaker Cloud). Chris
  16. Hi @AndersK, Great you're up and running again! We'll keep our internal ticket around as it's clearly a bug (to us). Chris
  17. This is a bug in 4.2. We have fixed it for 4.3 🙂
  18. Hi @AndersK, Thanks for reporting this. I have attache your log file to an internal ticket with the team that works on Connect. Although we're quite busy at the moment we'll be sure to investigate your problem and try to reproduce it.
  19. Note: don't hold me liable for any of the following information, it might not be accurate over time. It just reflects my current state of thinking in my role at Ultimaker. We currently have no plans to make Connect work outside of a printer, and for sure not officially supporting people trying to do that themselves. We're focusing on using cloud technology to scale up the grouping of printers and scheduling of print jobs instead of a local server, because that's the only way that Ultimaker can guarantee service quality and the environment in which it runs. Also more and more companies want to buy SaaS solutions instead of owning and managing on-premise hardware. In terms of effort to actually make it work, that's hard to guess as we haven't put further effort in pursuing this option (so no estimations were done). If you wanna have a go at it yourself, feel free to SSH into the printer an have a look around what's installed on the file system in terms of Python packages. I'm not sure if you're allowed to run your alterations commercially, but 'hobbying around' is fine I guess.
  20. Well, Cura needs the plugin to do all that stuff. By default, Cura only understands networked Ultimaker printers. Any other networked printers (like OctoPrint, or in this case Duet WiFi board enabled printers) need a plugin to add support to the networking functionality. The plugin basically tells Cura which networked printers it found and offers those to the discovery mechanism. If that for some reason is not working in your case, your best bet would be to file an issue with the plugin author.
  21. This plugin is not maintained or supported by Ultimaker. You can contact the author of this plugin directly via https://github.com/Kriechi/Cura-DuetRRFPlugin/issues.
  22. The initial_layer_height is not affected by design, as we need that layer to be predictable in our profiles in order to ensure proper 1st layer adhesion to the build plate. All layers above the initial layer respond to the adaptive layers algorithm.
  23. The updated plugin (1.1.0) is now published in the Marketplace.
  24. If your firewall accepts all outgoing connections to *.ultimaker.com (on port 443) it should work fine. Your incoming open port for the webcam should not affect Ultimaker Cloud connections. Are you able to reach for example account.ultimaker.com on a laptop that is running in the same network?
  25. Hi, I have just submitted v1.1.0 to Ultimaker for review, it should be available in the Marketplace soon. It fixes some reported crashes and improves the search feature. Details release notes are available on https://github.com/ChrisTerBeke/ThingiBrowser/releases/tag/v1.1.0, as well as a .curapackage that you can drag into Cura if you don't want to wait for Marketplace approval. Next up on my TODO list are showing the file upload dates and a home page with featured items.
