Cura Connect: How to add more 3D printers to the group


In this guide, we’ll explain how to add additional printers to your Cura Connect group If you have not set up a group yet, watch
our video “How to create a Cura Connect group” Make sure all your Ultimaker 3D printers are
connected to the same local network as the group host (“Group-Host”) In Cura, go to the monitor tab Click “View Printers” on the right side of
the screen You will be redirected to the Cura Connect
browser This view is the Printers tab We can add printers directly in this interface Below the printers header, you can manage
the group, and view each printer’s material and print core configuration Note there is one printer already added to
the group – this is the host Any available 3D printer to connect to can
be found below the “Other available printers” header See that there is one printer available on
this network Add “Printer-2” to the group by pressing “Add
to group” on the printer’s icon You can also manually add printers by filling
in the IP address Once you’ve added a printer to the group,
a confirmation screen will appear in Cura Connect and on the display of your Ultimaker 3 Press “OK” in the pop-up window, and accept the request on the Ultimaker 3 display to continue Notice that “Printer-2” has moved to the top of the screen, next to “Group-Host” It is now added to the group, and ready to
receive jobs Repeat these steps for any Ultimaker 3 you
want to add to your group You have now successfully set up your Cura
Connect group Thank you for choosing Ultimaker
