Download MakerBot Desktop 3.10.0


Version 3.10.0 Notes

3.10.0 Notes:

Adds compatibility with MakerBot Print.

For proper USB functionality when using both MakerBot Desktop and Makerbot Print, please make sure you're running the most recent version of MakerBot Desktop.

MakerBot Desktop supports USB and network connectivity with the MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation, Replicator Mini, and Replicator Z18.USB support is also available for Replicator 2 and 2x.

Bug Fixes:

  • Minor fixes and improvements
  • Known Issues:

  • If you’re using multiple printers of the same type equipped with different extruders (Smart Extruder/Smart Extruder+), make sure to open the Settings dialog when switching between printers to ensure extruder settings are properly applied.
  • When printing with an out of date custom profile you will get two error messages: one for the out of date profile, and one for printing with the wrong extruder type. The extruder type error is being thrown automatically and you can ignore it unless you have actually changed your extruder type.
  • Videos in the Learn tab may cause instability on certain systems. Try the "open in browser" option or find the videos on Makerbot.com/Support.
  • 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.

  • Version 3.9.2 Notes

    3.9.2 Notes: "For Windows Only"

    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.

    Version 2.4 Notes

    MultiScan Technology Enhances Your Scans:

    New MakerBot MultiScan Technology vastly expands the capabilities of the MakerBot Digitizer. MultiScan allows you to scan objects from multiple angles so that you can make higher quality models than ever before. Now, you can capture the top, bottom, and hidden parts of objects simply by changing the orientation of the object you’re scanning. Stay tuned for our next Digitizer Education blog for a complete rundown of this game-changing capability.

    Additional Features:

    With MakerWare 2.4, we’re introducing a lighting acclimation feature that lessens the impact of strong overhead light on your scans. We’ve also upgraded our Extrusion Guards to improve stability, and implemented filament fan modulation to prevent filament clogging in the MakerBot Replicator 2.
