UM3 start print automatic after power up

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 start print automatic after power up


I´m searching for a possibility for my UM3 to start a print automatically after power up.

I found a solution for the UM2 here: https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/9206-feature-request-timer-to-delay-printing/

As described I generate a auto0.g file with RepRap G-code flavor from the model I want to print.

Unfortunately after the power up the UM3 says print aborted so its not working.


Does any one have a solution that works from the USB in the UM3?


Best regards

    I am not aware of a "out of the box" solution, but one idea is to use an external script. If you are familiarly in scripting, you could use the API of the UM3 to check regularly if printer is online and start a new print. 


    The downside of this solution is, that you have to run a separate PC, Raspberry, whatever.

    Not sure exactly why you need this but with the phone app you can remotely launch a print. At least when you are on the printers network. I do this using a VPN connection.

    Though I never start a print remotely as I prefer to be around for the first few minutes I use it for monitoring and the ability to remotely shut it down. I even added a WiFi powerplug just to be sure.
