Hello,

 

Using my new UM 3 on an enterprise network, printing by LAN is very useful, but is there anyway to secure the printer acces as everybody can install cura on is computer and acces to the job list of the printer and interact with it ?

 

Regards,

Ed

    Nope, not yet. We originally designed the UM3 with the notion that everyone that has access to the wifi network is to be trusted.

    Providing more control is something we're looking into. 

    All that being said; Could you say a bit more how you think this should work? What features would be a must for you?

    Hello, it's the same with the wired network (had to impose IP adress by the router as UM3 permit noit static IP assignement).

    I think passwords with two level of user will be enough : level1 can just consult job list and show camera. Level 2 can have acces to parameters, send a new job or remove one in the list.

     

    Without the pasword : no acces to the printer

     

    Regards,

    Ed

    Chiming in here because I'm hoping to find a solution as well. I am setting up a university library makerspace so we will have thousands of people with physical access to our UM3 printers. Since anyone that can press the wheel button can look up the IP and gain access via Cura Connect, we can't really enable network access. I was hoping only admin users would be able to control printing (send, abort, etc), not anyone with a computer/mobile device. Is the UM5 more secure?

    Oh that's unfortunate. This might actually stop us from going with Ultimaker. What do people with UMs in public spaces normally do to secure the printers? just leave them offline and disconnect WIFI?

    Or use a separate Wifi network, dedicated to your space.

    Certainly this would create a controlled zone however, it’s far from practical much less realistic for many businesses.

     

    Takes care

    Yeah my IT department is definitely not going to be OK with me setting up rouge routers. UM definitely needs some sort of permissions management.

    I can't say more about it than "We're aware of it and looking for a solution", sorry.

    hi guys, is this still a thing? just realised that anyone who knows the IP of the printer in here can remotely send away previously sent jobs from the history.

    We work in a school, we cant have this sort of unsolicited access. Is there a solution? We need network printing, but we cant have anyone within our network going through our logs and sending things away.

    The Ultimaker Digital Factory should solve your issue.

    but then we cant access the camera stream, just the "time lapse" version which is no good as we stream it to the screens in the labs. Surely password protected access cant be hard to integrate, these machines are used in education so there is a need for the above.

    And there is a solution with the Digital Factory. I would not expect Ultimaker to implement something similar into the firmware itself. The electronics inside the Ultimaker printers have limited capacity, hence the solution with the cloud service.

    If you need a stream, you might have to implement a webcam. The advantage there is that you can chose the angle.

    it would be nice if the digital factory offered up the option of how the camera is displayed, for example a video rather than a time-lapse style system. We have the bandwidth to cope so the option would be nice as the time-lapse style is useless for us in the classroom.

    I have explored implementing a USB camera with the help of Smithy, but alas i cant find a camera that actually works with it.

      • 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
