Mobile device + headless server Android or ios


Recommended Posts

Posted · Mobile device + headless server Android or ios


After browsing the forum I feel it should be possible to install Cura on a headless server (docker?) And access it on my mobile device over local lan. I'm stuck on the UI bit. Does the docker image contain a UI that's accessible over a specific port?


Essentially id like something like Astroprint (slice only) on my own network.

My setup is as follows

Printer:                          DIY Cartesian 

Firmware:                      Klipper

Firmware Web server: DWC2


I've access to a pi 2 and a Ubuntu headless server on Windows HyperV


Essential I would love to slice an STL from my phone and upload the Gcode directly to my machine.


Cheers for any pointers.

    Getting the engine to run on a server should not be too hard. But the engine doesn't do any of the clever things that the GUI does with the profiles.

    So as long as you don't mind that you have to provide "flat" profiles (So a complete list of all settings as key value pairs), this is a strategy you could use.

    Cheers for the reply. I figured it'd be something like that. Have you heard of anyone has an open source web UI that could work with it? I could probably manage to get it working via command line but I've no idea when it comes to UI stuff.

        (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.
