Remote Cura connect access plans?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Remote Cura connect access plans?

Do you have any plans to update the Cura connect app to work outside of the local network of the printer?

It would be very handy to be able to access the printers from outside of the local network so you can check to make sure a print as is still fine and if you have had a fail to be able to cancel the print. Right now if you are outside of your local network and if a print fails you will return to a lot of wasted filament and a big mess, if you could check in you would be able to stop it sooner.

 

Also the app does not send alerts to warn you of a filament run out error, and it be handy if it did.

Hi,

 

We currently have no plans to update the Connect app to work outside the local network.

However you can use mycloud.ultimaker.com, our remote management solution, on your phone's mobile browser. It's fully responsive and provides most features that Connect does locally. Other Connect features will soon be available on MyCloud as well. We're also investigating a more thorough notification system that includes most printer errors.

As a general rule our goal is to have errors messages and warning which appear on the printer to also be shown within the MyCloud environment.
