Call Ultimaker's HTTP API from an HTTPS site

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to call the ultimaker's API from an https site (google site) while being on the same network as the printer.

I get the "mixed content" error that stops me from doing so. (you're not supposed call a resource from an HTTPS to a HTTP because it is a security hasard.)

I've not seen much people asking the same question around, so I ask myself, am I dumb and there is an easy workaround, or it's just not possible.

Thank you for your answers !

Well apache has proxy features. So if you already had a website where you own the primary web server, and it's apache, you can easily add a few lines into the apache config file such that for example:


would proxy translate to your um3 as http requests.

But if you don't already have an apache webserver already being used then this is more complicated.

    • "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.
