We’re always working to improve MakerBot Desktop and MakerBot Firmware so you can get the most out of your MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer.
To take advantage of all the latest improvements and capabilities, it’s important to keep your MakerBot Desktop and MakerBot Firmware current and up to date. You can download the latest version of MakerBot Desktop from this page. To update MakerBot Firmware, please follow these instructions.
Important: When printing files via the USB port, your printer's internal storage, or your Library, reprepare (reslice) them through MakerBot Desktop to achieve the best results. Files that are not reprepared (resliced) will not achieve best results.
