Octoprint or equivalent for Ultimaker S5

Recommended Posts

Posted · Octoprint or equivalent for Ultimaker S5

My workspace has an Ultimaker S5 in addition to several other 3D printers and in-house tracking software that relies on data obtained via OctoPrint. I have attempted to connect OctoPrint to the S5 using Ethernet and following instructions for the 2 on the internet, without success. I have also found indications that Cura Connect should have an API, but I cannot find this either.


Can anyone point me to instructions to (ideally) control an Ultimaker S5 via Octoprint, or to access Cura Connect's APIi?


System Configuration:

Ultimaker S5:

        hardware type: 9051-0


        on WiFi

        developer mode enabled

connected to a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with an Ethernet patch (crossover cable) (after attempting with a std)

        Octopi (Raspbian) v. 0.16.0

        Octoprint v 1.3.11

        Samba version 4.5.16-Debian


Cura 4.1.0

Octoprint plugin - latest


Thank you for your assistance.

There is no way to print from OctoPrint to an Ultimaker 3 or S5. Connecting the printer directly to your raspberry pi is unlikely going to be useful; the printer expects a DHCP server on the network it is connected to, and the raspberry pi is not normally configured to include a DHCP service. If you want them to be able to "talk" to eachother, it is best to connect them both to the same network instead of directly to eachother.


You can find the documentation for Cura Connect (now Ultimaker Connect) on your printer: http://(address of your printer)/docs/api/
