How to group printers together

Grouping printers will no longer be supported in Ultimaker Digital Factory. Please read the details in the article Grouping printers no longer supported.

Networked Ultimaker S-line printers and Ultimaker 3 printers can be grouped together for easier printer management and print job delegation. Printers grouped in your local network are automatically reflected as a group in the Digital Factory.

How do I create a group of printers?

Every printer that is added directly to Ultimaker Cura becomes its own host of a group. The group by default has only one printer - the host.

Tip: Add printers to your Digital Factory for remote printer access.

How do I add more printers to my group?

If the host printer is added to your Ultimaker Account, you can add printers to your group using your dashboard. From the printers tab on your dashboard, click the manage button to access the host groups IP. 

Note: The manage button is only available when connected to the same local area network as the printer.

Alternatively, you can directly navigate to the page by going to <printersip>/printers, e.g 192.168.10.10/printers

You will be directed the Ultimaker Connect printers page from where you can see an overview of the group status. Scroll down to see more printers connected to your network, and simply click 'Add' on a local area network printer that you wish to add to group. For security reasons, you will be asked to input an access code. This access code is displayed on your printer.

Note: The size of a printer group is limited, please follow the printer group guidelines to ensure stable and reliable print results.
