For those who haven't noticed!! There is a workaround to get digital factory working again. Posted above.
The expiration notice was posted back in May!
Update - Update concerning several types of printers
- We have a firmware in place for S3 printers and S5 printer with the U on the side. Check the maintenance menu of the printer to trigger the upgrade.
- For S5 printers with the robot on the side we have a workaround to get the printers back online. See the link below
- Our software engineers are working hard on a fix for the UM3 printers.
- Ultimaker 2+ Printers remain unaffected.
Worked perfectly thanks!
Well I can somewhat safely say that the UM3 and the S5 (for older hardware models) updates are in the testing pipeline and I feel fairly confident about it.
It's never just a simple update though, there's always complications, the UM3 software needed a lot of updates in particular and we had some issues with the update software on our older S-line machines. The software where we did manage to do a straight up upgrade, that one only worked if you installed it on a printer directly as with the workaround, but not when building a package, even though for older firmware that did work.
It's nice to know we were likely not the only ones working hard to fix problems due to this.
Would it have worked flawlessly if we had updated everything on time, definitely not, users of older firmware versions and the UM3 would still have been disconnected from DF.
Already connected printers maintain their connection, but if it is rebooted or looses internet for little while it will fail.
