Cura Connect | Android | Disconnecting with NFC PVA?

Recommended Posts

This is the weirdest issue that I have been troubleshooting for months.  I have a lot of trouble connecting to my UM3 both with Cura (all OS X versions) and with Ultimaker 3 android app (v1.0.1). 

 

When I load Ultimaker PVA onto the printer it disconnects and refuses all control connections. I can always see it with the manual IP address and pings come back fine. When I remove the NFC PVA and select PVA manually I have no issues.  The only exception appears to be after a firmware update it will connect until the printer is restarted.  It is almost acting like port 80 (control port) stops listening as soon as the NFC chip recognizes a spool of filament.  I have tried resetting the printer to factory defaults and clearing the Cura Connect cache.  Does anyone else experience this?

 

I am a teacher on a medium-large network.  We are an Apple network but I have an Android S8+ (Oreo).  At this time I am no longer suspecting this is a network issue but a weird bug.

    • "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.
