Ultimaker 3 with firmware 4 is not geting IP address. Arp table Incomplete

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am just setting up an ultimaker 3 extended in a company network and to my surprise the system cannot assign the right IP address to the printer because the MAC address can not be found in the arp table.

I check that and what it shows is this: (incomplete) eth0inlocal

This test was using a direct connection with the printer over Ethernet. As you can see the mac address appears as (incomplete).

Is there a way to solve this problem? otherwise I would need to configure the printer with a static IP address and configure the right gateway.

Check the information using System -> Network -> Connection status.

However, the 169 network is a fallback network when it cannot get a network address from a DHCP server (for whatever reason).

If you can use a direct connection with a PC, setup a DHCP server on the PC. The printer will then get a valid IP address and you should be able to determine the MAC address.

    • "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.
