Recommended Posts

Hi, I've just setup my new UM5, and even though Cura (3.4) can see the printer and display firmware details, it can't seem to connect to it.

Thank you, @nallath! I went to the /printers URL and detached the printer from the group (no idea why it's been part of a group to begin with), then I confirmed on UM5 touchscreen to allow Cura Connect access and now the web UI is displaying printer details & the cam live stream.

    • "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.
