Ultimaker S5 direct network connection to Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 direct network connection to Cura


We just got an Ultimaker S5 at my work and want to print direct from a workstation with Cura. Tried different approaches but seems I cannot get a direct network connection.

According the manual Ultimaker uses port 5353. I tried with a switch between  but no success. The I tried to connect the printer direct to the workstation. I see the printer in Cura with its IP address and the WS get an address in the same range. However seems a connecton can not be established. I dont see the webcam as well. I run WIN 10 and disabled the firewall. 

When trying to do a network ping from WS (Test-NetConnection  in powershell) on port 5353 to Ultimaker there is ping response but port 5353 is not responding. Port 80 and 8080 are responding. 

When connecting through the Cloud service all works fine. But since we prefere to connect direct to the printer this is not an option at the moment. 

So either its not possible to connect direct to the printer or I do something wrong?

    Have you also tried to add the printer manually to Cura (so via IP?)

    The auto detect feature uses zeroconf and i've seen that cause issues in "weird" network setups. This is because zeroconf is UDP based and that is quite often shielded / regulated for some reason.

      • 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
