    Hi,

     

    The Ultimaker App is quite old and not updated with remote functionality via the cloud. You can use the mobile webview however via https://digitalfactory.ultimaker.com, we try to make everything look nice on all screen sizes. For quick access you could pin that page to your home screen?

    Mm that's not supposed to happen. Can you export the logs to USB from the settings menu and send them to me via private message? After that you can try rebooting the printer to see if the webcam icon appears again.

    I had the same problem happen, it worked at first then it just stopped showing the camera one day and saying about the group does not support all the features.

     

    Once my printers are done with the print jobs they got going now in a few days, i'll set cloud back up and see if it's still doing it and if so i'll post my logs also.

    That'd be great. We have created an internal ticket for this problem as well, I expect it to be picked up soon, but likely a firmware release is needed to deploy a fix to the field.

    I'm having the same issues, first I thought it was the company internet policy so I got all the address required to use the cloud services whitelisted (I think @ctbeke posted these a month ago or so, can't remember exactly where I found them), it worked for a bit but was flaky. Now I can't get the camera icon to show even if there is no filtering or surfing policy enabled. I only upgraded my firmware in order to be able to use this feature and now it is broken too:(

    Please upload or send me the printers logs so I can attach these to our internal ticket. The more we know, the faster we can fix it!

    We're now actively trying to reproduce and fix this issue. Will let you know in this thread if we have any results. Please keep sharing logs if you have any available.

    Another update: we have deployed a potential fix to our production cloud environment that should work without firmware changes. Please monitor your connected printers the coming days to see if the issue is not occurring anymore, and please let me know if it still does!

    Awesome! I had the webpage open in the background all morning, and now the camera icons both came back without even refreshing the page. Looks promising, thanks for the quick turnaround!

    So far the camera is working fine on the cloud, will keep eye on it over the next week or so.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
