"no group host" offered solution leads to dead url?


Recommended Posts

Posted · "no group host" offered solution leads to dead url?

Using Cura 4.3, and after slicing any model, sending to print over network, i get an expected 'override needed' (non-UM filament).

Overrides fine in the app, then a message pops up stating "no group host", and to click link to resolve.

However, the link leads to "print_jobs.com", obviously not by Cura / UM... what is going on here?

    I've the same problems:

    - there's mostly always to override a non-NFC material (see thread link)

    - I always get an error message: "Not a group host. You are attempting to connect to UM3X-SPP but it is not the host of a group. You can visit the web page to configure it as a group host."


    For the second topic, the offered URL is bad (strange they've not already corrected in Cura), but it would work if you prefix your printer IP address (eg.

    The problem is that even following the link, that brings you to the normal Cura Connect webpage, you cannot change the host group.


    But, in any case, would I really want/need to have an host group?


    My scenario is this one:

    I've an Ultimaker 3 Extended at home (UM3X-SPP) and an Ultimaker S5 at work, in two different networks.

    Both of the printers are assigned to my Ultimaker account.


    Obviously - being in different networks (no common VPN) - the two printers cannot directly communicate one another, while they could through a cloud service.


    I do not really need setting up a group host to direct prints to available printers, as my works happen in different locations.


    How could I manage this, without having this usual message to override?

      • 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
