Monitoring your print

Once the print is running via network or if you connect to your Ultimaker 3 from Cura, you can monitor the print.

This allows you to view the progress of your prints and spot failures, and to control your Ultimaker 3 from a distance.

To open the print monitor, click on the printer icon in the top right corner. The printer icon should have a green checkmark next to it when it is ready to start a print. While the Ultimaker 3 is printing blue dots will be displayed next to the printer icon.

You will find:

  • A live camera connection to your Ultimaker 3
  • Print information (temperatures, job name, printing time and estimated time left)
  • A “pause” and “abort” button to control the printer from a distance
