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:

169.254.204.192 (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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
