Feature Request: Please support OctoPrint


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Feature Request: Please support OctoPrint


A while ago Daid stated that there is some work to be done on the UM2 firmware in order to support OctoPrint:


As Gina (OctoPrint developer) does not have time for it (and thinks it should be implemented as a plugin anyway), I personally guess Ultimaker 2 <-> OctoPrint won't ever happen.


Ultimaker, please reconsider this issue. OctoPrint is very very useful and convenient when the printer is used on a daily basis. SDcard shuffling is cool and all, but dragging a .gcode file on the browser and hitting print is way better.

Supporting OctoPrint would also fulfill the marketing statement about the UM2 beeing "wifi ready" that seems to still float around...

Octoprint Plugin Bug

The plugin is in constant use and communication with your OctoPrint server (including VIDEO) even when your not using it.

I noticed that my Internet/Intranet speeds were pretty bad today. Trying to find the culprit (of course thinking its my ISP), I noticed my RainMeter Network monitor was showing my Windows PC was receiving 5Mbps almost constantly.

So I started shutting down my Windows Apps to see who was the culprit.

I had 3 instances of Cura running and image my surprise when the Network traffic when to 0 when I closed all Cura instances!

So I removed the plug-in and restarted Cura. No more Internet traffic jams.

P.S. I know it wasn't Windows 10 update because I have that turned OFF (you can do that in Win10 Pro).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
