Printer offline in Digital Factory


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer offline in Digital Factory

After finishing a print earlier today, the S5 is offline in Digital Factory. Print over network in Cura is still available and the printer is connected to the network as it always have been.

I've restarted the printer, re-initialized DF on the printer and (after a couple of tries) added the printer. It showed up as 'online' for a moment, but when I went to the DF library to start a print, the printer was offline again.


It's getting frustrating, I've got prints to make and I've wasted a couple of hours today trying to fix it.

I'll start the print from Cura for now, but that's not why we spend big bucks on a complete solution...

Now for the kicker: after starting the print from Cura, the printer suddenly goes online in DF..


The S5 is on the latest firmware. Any ideas on how to get it back to work?

    Hi Multitube,


    That connection issue sounds very awkward indeed.

    In order to debug, would you mind sharing your printer log with us, so we can debug what exactly was going on with your printer?

    Regarding how to get the log, you may refer to: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015583819-Save-log-files-to-USB


    Please let me know if you have further questions.


    Best regards, xli

    Hey @Aidanvine39


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    Can you share your logs with us? It can also be a private message. 
    Than I can have someone from the team look at it so we can either troubleshoot what is wrong or we can log it as a bug that we can try to resolve. 

    You can follow the instructions here https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015583819-Save-log-files-to-USB
    Thank you!

      • 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
