Hi everybody,

Is there any documentation for the developer mode of Ultimaker 3?

I use Linux all the time, but the Linux version on UM3 does not let me do much, at least, I don't know how to use it. I only found a post from @Daid ( https://ultimaker.com/en/community/23428-inside-the-ultimaker-3-day-5-developer-mode-linux-systemd ) which I could not use it.

My problem is that after I ssh to the 3D printer, I only have few limited options: (exec, exit, get, help, list, select, set, and sendgcode). I don't know how to actually run Linux commands there. For instance, right now I am trying to set a static IP for my UM3. I know how to do it on a desktop distribution of Linux, but I cannot run any similar command on the version of Linux installed on UM3.

    I think the key point is: login as "root" (same password as the ultimaker user). Good luck, and if you've managed the static IP thing... a step-by-step docu would be very nice... :)

    If its really is Debian (jessie build), then static IP assignment might be as easy as:

     

    nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf

     

    Then add these lines to the bottom:

     

    interface eth0static ip_address=192.168.1.3/24static routers=192.168.3.1.1static domain_name_servers=8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4

     

    interface is what's connected to your network (eth0, wlan0, etc). Use:

     

    ifconfig

     

    To see which interface name has an IP address.

    static ip_address is what you want to assign to your Ultimaker (you'll usually keep the /24 netmask)

    static router is the IP address of your router.

    static domain_name_servers is optional if your router doesn't provide them, or you want to use specific ones (these are Google's)

    P.S. Another option is to set your router to assign a static IP address for the Ultimaker based on its MAC address. Then you don't have to muck with the guts of your printer...

    Thanks ... This solved my issue in the connection and running linux commands. It is weird that it was not mentioned anyplace online to do that.

    I will try this approach tomorrow. If it works, I will share it here.

      • 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
