Two issues with connectivity

Recommended Posts

There are two highly irritating issues with the UM3 that I would like to know how to fix:

-Sometimes, when I insert a USB into my UM3, if I go to "print" it won't show any files and instructs me to insert a USB or print over cura. I have to restart the printer in order for the files to show. How do I avoid this?

-Also an issue is the fact that sometimes CURA will become unable to detect my UM3 no matter how many times I refresh, or recreate a hotspot. The only way I'm able to fix it is to unplug my router for 5 minutes and then reset it. How do I fix this problem without all that crap?

Are you using Windows? If so, that's the problem. The work around is to manually add the IP in the connect with printer interface.

The USB drive issue is (being) fixed. Try updating your firmware.

Using W10 - the last time I tried to add the IP manually it wasn't able to find it though.

    • "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.
