Remote access to UM3 API from a web server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Remote access to UM3 API from a web server

Hi community,


Did anyone ever tried to access the Ultimaker 3 API from a web server ?


On my UM3E I can access the API from local network IP.

But I can only do this when I am on the same WIFI network.


I would like to send requests to the API from a website hosted on AWS.

I think I will need to set up some NAT to access the printer from "outside".


If some of you have feedbacks and tips on it, I'll be glad to ear.

    Unless you know what you are doing: don't.


    The UM3 firmware is not designed to be secure enough to face the internet. Unless you want your printer to be controllable by a random script-kiddie, do NOT connect your printer directly to the internet.

        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.
