    How to Update MakerBot Desktop

    If your computer is connected to the Internet, MakerBot Desktop should automatically download new software when an update becomes available, unless you have opted out of Automatic Downloads. However, if you are experiencing issues with your prints, it is always a good idea to confirm that you have the latest version of MakerBot Desktop. Note: MakerBot Desktop is no longer in development. To upgrade to our newer software, please install MakerBot Print. If you are using a Replicator 2X, we recommend continuing with the MakerBot Desktop software.
