UM3 Starts printing from unknown source

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 Starts printing from unknown source


my UM3 is located inside a medium size company and I had the problem that the printer starts printing from an unkown source. I asks the colleagues that are also working with the printer, but nobody of them started the job. Is it possible to see the IP-Adress or something else to find out the source of the job?

The API shows an empty user:

  "datetime_cleaned": "",
  "datetime_finished": "2018-01-04T12:52:44",
  "datetime_started": "2018-01-04T11:40:51",
  "name": "S_Csword-90",
  "progress": 0.23807909949339073,
  "reprint_original_uuid": "",
  "result": "Aborted",
  "source": "WEB_API",
  "source_application": "Cura connect",
  "source_user": "",
  "state": "post_print",
  "time_elapsed": 2913,
  "time_total": 12238,
  "uuid": "642a2cef-0224-483b-90b8-fbe66fc67e14"

Kind regards,

I figured out that an other colleague of mine has an Ultimaker 3, too. And to any reason the job starts on the wrong printer. This is very strange and I expected that every user has to get access (by pressing the button in the frontpanel of the printer) before printing is possible.


Anybody else with more then one UM3 has the same problem?

So everybody inside my LAN can just start/stop prints?

Seems to be a little bit inconsequent. When Cura Connect doesn't need it, why did you implement it in general?


But back to my original question. Can I get some information who starts a job?
