Cura 4.1 no embedded camera stream


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.1 no embedded camera stream

I just upgraded to Cura 4.1. I got Cura and Octoprint talking by updating the octoprint plugin but there is no video stream shown when I am in the 'Monitor' window in Cura. It works in 4.0.

It also works in the web interface for Octoprint.

I suspect there is some setting that I did not configure correctly (or at all) when going to 4.1 and I could use a pointer as to where to look.

    Just to add some detail .... I have a print going. I can load Cura 4.0 and it displays the camera picture just fine. If I now close 4.0 and open 4.1, instead of a camera picture I get a white clear space. The interesting thing is that the tool and bed temperatures are displayed correctly in both 4.0 and 4.1 as is the IP number of the octopi that is running things.

    For reasons unknown, things started working. I hit the 'connect' button on the printer configuration / octoprint section and the picture showed up. I should add that I tried this multiple times before without joy. Some gremlins, some confused bits, I don't know but it started working <shrug>

    Still experiencing strange things ... whenever I start Cura from the beginning, I have to go to the printer interface and connect with octoprint in order to see the embedded video stream from the printer camera. This was not required in any previous version. It's either something broken or something changed that requires some sort of switch to configure to automatically connect.

      • 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
