Ultimaker 3 Web-api

Recommended Posts

Hi, I know the Ultimaker 3 has a web-api you can use, e.g http://ultimaker.ip/api/v1/print_job or http://ultimaker.ip:8080/?action=stream.

However, i'm struggling to find an overview or some sort of documentation for this API, or the different htmls you can visit. Does such an overview exist? Am I just bad at googling?

Also, is it possible to use this api to upload gcode-files directly without using Cura?

As of firmware 3.6, you can also find documentation on the API on the printer itself.

At http://[ip]/docs/api

As soon as this release is turned into stable, I will update those posts to reflect this.

Thanks for the help! Those blog posts are helpful yes.

Trying to access the page you mentioned Daid, i'm transferred to the start.html-page which I never can complete. It doesn't let me pass the 'name your printer' page. That box doesn't accept any name I type into it.

The start.html isn't related to the documentation (it is the wifi setup). If you don't end up at the documentation then your firmware is most likely older then required for this documentation.

    • "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.
