Installing WiFi and firmware

The Ultimaker 3 allows for printing wireless over a network. Therefore the next step is to connect your Ultimaker 3 to a network.

Setting up WiFi

  1. Wait until your Ultimaker 3 has created a WiFi hotspot. This can take a minute.
  2. Move to your computer and connect it to the wireless network of the printer. The name of the network is shown on the display of the Ultimaker 3.
  3. A pop-up will appear on the display of your computer. Follow the steps to connect the Ultimaker 3 to your local WiFi network. The pop-up will disappear when you have completed these steps.

    Note: When the pop-up does not appear, open a browser and type “Ultimaker.com”.

     

  4. Go back to the Ultimaker 3 to continue with the setup for first use.

    Note: Within some network environments the Ultimaker 3 may experience difficulties connecting wireless. When this happens, re-run the WiFi setup from another computer.

    Note: If you skip this process you can always re-do the WiFi setup by going to System > Network > Run WiFi setup. Ensure you have enabled WiFi in the network menu in this case.

Updating the firmware

As a last step the Ultimaker 3 will check if the latest firmware is installed. If not, it will get the latest firmware from the network and install it. This will take several minutes.
