Version 3.9.0 Notes
Latest Release
3.9.0 Notes:

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 the Smart Extruder+ as well the latest improvements, it's important to keep your MakerBot Desktop and MakerBot Firmware 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.

Improvements:

  • Optimized printing for the Smart Extruder+
  • Added Smart Extruder Type dropdown to Settings dialog
  • Extruder Type setting will automatically be set to match the extruder on any connected Fifth Generation MakerBot 3D Printer
  • Notification that X3G file has been exported no longer appears too early
  • Fixed an issue with the print preparation dialog where it would get stuck
  • Known Issues:

  • During autoupdate, the installer dialog can appear before MakerBot Desktop is completely closed. Wait 5 seconds after the appearance of the installer dialog before clicking "Yes" to start installing.
  • Slicing a file with unicode characters in the filename will fail. To get around this issue, rename your file.
  • If an error is thrown when connecting to a hidden wireless network, please dismiss the error and check to see if you are connected before attempting to connect again.
  • The toolpath visualizations for the Replicator Single, Replicator Dual, Replicator 2, and Replicator 2X begin at the fourth layer.
  • Transformation icons have invisible text labels.

    Combine Two or More Scans
    MakerBot MultiScan Technology allows you to
    scan objects from multiple angles to capture the
    top, bottom, and hidden parts of your object.
    You can then "merge" them together to create
    the best possible 3D model.
