mysteriously enters developer mode


Recommended Posts

Posted · mysteriously enters developer mode

Hi, I have three new-to-me Ultimaker 3 printers. Our IT folks put them on our local 3dprinteros network.


Every day or so, one of the three printers will mysteriously enter developer mode. I go through the front panel menu to uncheck the developer mode box and let the printer restart. I confirm that the printer is not in developer mode after it restarts. All is well, until maybe a few days later when I walk past the printer and see it in developer mode again. Then I do the uncheck-reboot-confirm steps again and wait until next time.


The four printers (also UM 3) I have had for a couple of years don't do this. 


Anyone else see this? Anyone have any clues? Thank you!

    Weird. I've never heard this before.
    Perhaps some else enables developer mode?


    If you want to I can have a look at the log files and if these go back long enough we might find when it was enabled. This might give you a pointer as to who enabled it. You can send me log files when you click my avatar, and then on top of my personal screen is a 'message' button.
