I am going on a trip next week. I will be gone for a week. What better time to do ginormous prints than when away? Each print is 6+ days. I will get them started on Sunday Feb. 18. This will give me almost 3 days of babysitting the prints. Usually, once they get past a point, they are fairly bulletproof. But when away, that is the best time for Murphy's law to take over and really create an issue.


So, I gots me Tablet and put on the UM3 APP from google play. Phone would not allow it....old phone.....


No issue seeing the things in the home wifi and also see that it has pause and cancel buttons.


But, when out of the home, how to do so? I have seen a lot of materials about this and much of it is beyond my experience, so is there a clear, concise way to approach this? I want to be able to monitor the prints and cancel from a distance if it goes toes up while away. It goes just a way bit over my head really danged fast too!


Right now, I feel like Peanut....

    FYI: this feature was just released as part of the Cura 4.0 Beta and Firmware 5.2 Beta. It'll get some improvements towards the stable releases, but you can already try it out if you have an Ultimaker S5.

      • 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
