UM3 Unavailable - Unable to accept new print jobs


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 Unavailable - Unable to accept new print jobs

My UM3 has decided to not accept print jobs across the network with the following message.  Note that it still prints just fine from the thumbdrive and there are no messages of anything wrong from the printer


Unavailable: This printer is currently unable to accept new print jobs



The 3D printer can't start a print unless both print cores are present. Install the matching print cores to proceed.

The selected 3D printer reports an unexpected status. Ensure that your printers have the latest version of the firmware, or delete and resubmit this print job to try again.

    If you are using cura connect, then try to use the cura connect reset on the machine. If you do not have print cores installed in both slots it will not work no matter what you do. One may have gotten loose(?) or maybe it just needs a reset to see proper configuration.

    It happened to me recently too on my UM3. When I changed filament from generic filament, back to UM filament with a RFID. Apparently Cura and my UM3 decided there was a misconfiguration, so Cura Connect halted any further network printing until until the misconfiguration was rectified. The misconfiguration can be overridden on the Cura Connect screen.

    Of course it may have been an UM3 communication issue too, I have been getting a few of those lately.

    BTW, I don't believe Cura Connect print management is very helpful if there is just one user of an UM3, it seems to get in the way more than it helps.

    Thanks @kmanstudios and @CapableQuad.  My Cura Connect seems to be in a weird state.  It had my printer listed as a group owner but then it had another printer showing as well (I only have one UM3).  When I added the extra printer to my group it started to print!  Strangely, I can also send print jobs to the other printer and it also prints even though connect says that it has an issue.  So I am fixed but not in any way that I should be!   This is not Ultimakers finest in software but I can see the use for it in a production shop once it is polished a little more.


    Hopefully someone from Ultimaker will jump in here!

      • 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
