MakerBot Desktop 3.3 is intended for use with Fifth Generation Firmware 1.4. For the best experience, please update to MakerBot Desktop 3.3, then connect to your Fifth Generation printer and update to Fifth Generation Firmware 1.4.

Bug Fixes and Improvements:

  • An overhaul of the communications between Fifth Generation printers and MakerBot Desktop
  • Faster camera streaming
  • A new device preferences dialog for Fifth Generation printers
  • Changed our infill rule to union meshes with intersecting components
  • Added:

  • Camera streaming over a USB connection
  • Print History to the Library tab
  • Automatic unloading of filament after an out of filament error
  • The ability to change Smart Extruders during a paused print and resume printing
  • Print from file with .MakerBot files
  • Known Issues:

  • After a Fifth Generation printer is reset to factory settings, users should power cycle the printer before setting up Wi-Fi
  • Printing Digital Store items from a printer's control panel will not work, and the following error will appear: 'SLICING ERROR - Sorry, there was an error preparing the file. Please try again later.' This will be fixed in our next release. In the meantime, please use MakerBot Desktop or MakerBot Mobile to start these prints.
  • Printing certain Digital Store items will not work. These will be fixed on a rolling basis.
