Cura 4 forgets networked printer + cloud connect features dont work

Posted · Cura 4 forgets networked printer + cloud connect features dont work

Can anyone shed some light on why cura constantly forgets the IP of a wired networked S5? I have to manually add it every time I start cura in order for it to network and pull the current printer config.

 

Also the cloud cura connect features do not work at all - no printers are ever found.

 

Can someone list what features are actually meant to work via cloud? The web interface on the printer locally and the ultimaker account online show little or no detail.

    I have the same issue. I have it configured static, but have to go into settings, then connect, pick the printer, connect again, EVERY time. I've resorted to never close Cura for the convenience. 

     

    I have no idea how the Cloud stuff is supposed to work either. Do you have to have Cura open on a "host" computer or something?

    Same problem. Every time after I get out of Cura and after that enter in Cura I must refresh! My printer is designated in the list of printers as Ultimaker(manual). What that means?

    I see no one from ultimaker is looking at this, or at least acknowledge it... any one else see the new FW smash then drag the extrusion prime pile? Has it dragged that crap into your prints yet? And the B side acts different than the A side_ WTF?

    if its manual, you set a specific IP in the settings of Cura. It means it should be more reliable to pick it up. I have mine added both ways, manually and automatic. neither pick up the printer. its the only one in my house, whats not working?

    But by previous versions of Cura and firmware I have not experienced such a problems.

    Can we please get acknowledgement of this? It is extremely frustrating in shared environments.

    I am running into this same problem of having to remove, add and then connect my group of 4 printers each time I launch Cura. This is not acceptable and still has not been addressed. I am going back to Cura 3 until it is fixed.

    Cura 4.1 will have an improved cloud connection flow. Simply signing in in Cura and Cura Connect will make the printer appear in the 'add printer' list of discovered printers (no need anymore to be on the same local network for 'pairing').

     

    We also silently (marketing starts with Cura 4.1 release) launched https://mycloud.ultimaker.com/app/devices, which shows your cloud-connected print clusters and their queue. You still need Cura (4.0 or higher) to add new jobs. But at least you can now see the status of your machines without having to open Cura. We'll be adding more functionality to this application over time. In Cura you're also able to see the status of the printers and queue. We'd love to hear your feedback!

    Ok.... but will it allow us to just connect our printers over the network and keep it there, as we could in Cura 3? Or am I going to be forced to work through the cloud to print on a printer one door down from me, on my own network?

    After I installed the new version of Cura - 4.1 my printer is again visible. Thanks ! 🙂

    4.1 showed my printers immediately, no complaints.

    It’ll still work ‘the old way’. We never make using the cloud mandatory for any task related to just slicing and printing.

     

    Cloud is primarily a workflow enhancer and helps customers scale up their 3D printing operations. It also brings some security features like encryption during transport (which is hard in a local network due to SSL certificate issuing).

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
