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.

      • 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.
