Current DigitalFactory outage - we are working on a solution


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Current DigitalFactory outage - we are working on a solution

We are aware of the issue of the digital factory outage for the Ultimaker3 Ultimaker-S3 and Ultimaker-S5 (including the pro bundle).
We are working on a hot-fix now.

We will keep you posted as we progress.


Go to http://status.ultimaker.com for the current status.

Update - We can now offer a firmware upgrade to get all printers back online into Ultimaker Digital Factory.

We have a firmware update in place for
- Ultimaker S3 printers - both stable (6.2.3) and latest channel (6.5.2)*
- Ultimaker S5 printers with the U on the side - both stable (6.2.3) and latest channel (6.5.2)*
- Ultimaker 3 printers - Version 5.3.0
Make sure the printer is connected to the internet and if need be check the 'Maintenance' menu of the printer to trigger the upgrade.

For S5 printers with the robot on the side we have a firmware release available in the latest channel (6.5.2)*. We are Investigating changes needed for a firmware release for the stable channel. If your Ultimaker S5 is subscribed to to stable firmware changes you can switch firmware channels to get it back online in the Digital Factory. Alternatively, the method of updating the needed certificates manually is also still possible. Paste the URL below in the address bar of your browser to visit an Ultimaker support page containing instructions.

Thanks for the notification. 

Just noticed most of my printers are offline. 


At least my Pro Bundle is still fully online for some reason 🙂

    For those who haven't noticed!!  There is a workaround to get digital factory working again.  Posted above.

    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.

    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.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
