Connecting MakerBot PrintShop to your 3D Printer

    NOTE: MakerBot Printshop is no longer in development and is NOT compatible with the MakerBot Print software, the Replicator+ and the Replicator Mini+. Please use the MakerBot Desktop software to access your Cloud Library.

    In order to print directly from MakerBot PrintShop you must connect the app to your Fifth Generation MakerBot 3D printer.

    How to Connect MakerBot PrintShop to Your 3D Printer

    1. Make sure that your iPad and MakerBot 3D printer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

    2. Open MakerBot PrintShop, then tap the menu icon in the top right corner of the PrintShop home screen. In the menu that opens, select Add a Printer.

    3. Tap on your device in the list that appears. You can also search for your MakerBot 3D printer by tapping Connect Manually to IP Address. If you do not know your 3D printer’s IP address, tap Not seeing your printer? at the top of the printer list for instructions.

    4. Tap Use This Printer. Confirm your network connection by pressing the control panel dial on a MakerBot Replicator or MakerBot Replicator Z18, or the Action Button on a MakerBot Replicator Mini.

    If you are connected to more than one device, your most recently connected device will be shown in the list of available printers as your “Default Printer.” To set a different MakerBot 3D printer as the default, tap to select the 3D printer you want and then tap Use This Printer. To disconnect a printer, swipe left on the printer name in the list and tap Delete. To remove all printers, tap the menu icon and then tap Settings > Reset all Printer Authorizations.

    MakerBot Printshop is only compatible with the Replicator 5th Generation Model, Replicator Z18, and Replicator Mini.

    If you have an older MakerBot 3D printer, a Replicator+ or Replicator Mini+, or cannot connect to the app for any other reason, you will have to use our MakerBot Print computer software for your printing needs.

    NOTE: MakerBot Printshop is no longer in development and is NOT compatible with the MakerBot Print software. Please use the MakerBot Desktop software to access your Cloud Library.
