Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Does the plugin require additional hardware?

No. The plugin uses the printer’s built-in Wi-Fi.

Does the plugin stream gcode to the printer?

No. The plugin transfers all the gcode at once. This is equivalent to copying the gcode file to the SD Card via USB or uploading with the Web UI. Only when the full model is transferred, print starts.

Does the plugin transfer the model reliably?

Yes. The plugin transfers the model using TCP, which provides reliable delivery of data.

How fast does the plugin transfer models?

It depends on the model’s size and detail. Expect less than a minute for small models, and between 2-10 minutes for larger ones.


Cannot connect to the printer

Update to Cura 4.7 or later. In earlier versions, you need to temporarily disable the UM3 Network Printing plugin to add the printer over the network. Go to Marketplace → Installed and disable UM3 Network Printing plugin. Restart Cura to apply changes.
