Remote printing

Recommended Posts

On my other 3d printer I use octoprint to manage prints and save g-code that I can print when needed since I do a lot of the same prints over and over. Is there a way to have a similar setup with the Ultimaker 3, either using octoprint or by using the built in UM3 features?

Not for the moment i fear. The gcodes are saved somewhere but at the moment you can't access the previous print jobs

I think it will probably come around someday but they are probably other important features that are focused on at the moment

You could save the files on the cloud and send them to the printer using the ios/andriod app. This way you can have a backup.

The easiest solution should be that Cura actually allows to just send a saved gcode by wifi... I have not check cura 2.4 but I don't think they have that simple option yet.

Unfortunately the g-code loader wasn't done in time. Partially because it was the first "big" feature that aleph objects (Lulzbot) added to Cura. This made the whole process slower.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
