Direct LAN connection between PC and UM3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Direct LAN connection between PC and UM3

Dear all,

Is it possible to have a reliable connection between a PC and an ultimaker 3 with a LAN cable without the use of a router?

Situation is as follows: Ultimaker in a university bulding, no connection on network possible due to firewall/security. Therefore, I would like to connect the printer to a laptop which runs teamviewer, which I can then view from remote locations. 

Would it be necessary to use a router on this setup? I am currently unable to get a connection between laptop and printer, the assigned printer IP is different than the IP shown on the printer. I cannot connect to the printer IP. Would I need a router to assign IPs or is there a way which enables direct connection?


Kind regards

        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.
