UM3 WiFi Connection Failure


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 WiFi Connection Failure

I am having trouble connecting my UM3 to my WiFi.  I go to Systems>Network>Run WiFi Setup and it creates a WiFi Network.  I connect to the created network on my phone or computer and click "Start WiFi Setup". I name the printer "UM3-5" ,  then select the my local WiFi network and enter the WiFi password. The UM3 reports "Connected". WiFi is selected on the Network Menu.

Now I go to Cura and try to Add the Printer. Today it can't seem to find the UM3 when I click refresh.  Other days it works?  Even when it's working, it seems that when I leave it off for a few days I must go through this hit or miss process of resetting up WiFi.

What am I doing wrong?

    I have the same issue for years. The Wi-Fi connection is just lost sometimes. The Wi-Fi module of UM3 seems very unstable. I don't know it is a firmware or hardware issue. But it is really troublesome to me, I can't use network to send print or check the printing status.


    A long time ago, I sent the UM3 to Ultimaker reseller to fix the issue. They said Ultimaker will fix this issue in future firmware release. But it is still not fixed yet.

      • 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
