iphone/ipad cannot connect printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · iphone/ipad cannot connect printer

Hi Folks, 

1. UM3+ connected to LAN via Wifi. Works great. Printing many jobs over network.

2. Cura app on both Mac and PC connect to printer just fine. I can manage printer and see camera stream via Cura AND web browser.

3. Apps on both iphone and iPad find the printer just fine. Clicking on the printer in the list on either device produces error: Can't connect to *my printer name* Your iPhone is connected to "Wi-Fi".   

4. Verified the IP address of printer is within local device DHCP range of IP's.

5. Verified the iPhone and iPad are also within DHCP range of IP's. 

6. Re-installed iPhone app and still not giving me access, though I can see the printer in the list and as mentioned, can click on it. 


I recently updated firmware after not printing for many months. Machine asked to be updated so I did. Running latest Cura 4.8.x.  Unit has been powered off and on several times.

Ideas where to start looking? I'm getting a great stream off LAN computers, but want to check in on print progress without visiting printer (within wifi range, not over internet).

Thanks in advance...

      • 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
