Configure Ultimaker S5 in a Windows Server 2012

Posted · Configure Ultimaker S5 in a Windows Server 2012

Dear Community,


I received the ultimaker S5 yesterday and would like to install the printer as a network printer.

I have a Windows Server 2012 print server.


in the manual there isn't anything about this point. In the FAQ idem. In dowloand section there is not a section drivers.


I found only this guide: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012609519-How-to-connect-your-printer-to-the-network


but it really simple and not enough guide.


So is it possibile to configure the ultimaker S5 in a printer server? if yes, how? Where i can download the driver?


thanks for the support.

    No it is not possible, the 3D printer is not a printer that you can add to a print server or something like that.

    When you connect the printer to the network, you can use the Digital Factory or Cura on the clients can send jobs to the printer on their own.

    Thanks for the reply.


    Let me understand ... if I connect the printer to my network, will it receive a dynamic ip? Do I need to install the software on all computers where they need to print?


    Does the software automatically recognize the printer?
