Using MakerBot Desktop

    MakerBot Desktop is a free app for preparing 3D prints and managing your 3D content. Whether you print directly to your MakerBot 3D printer via USB cable, Ethernet or Wi-Fi or you export your print files to a USB drive or SD card, MakerBot Desktop is where all of your prints will begin. For more information about what MakerBot Desktop is, you can watch the video below.

    MakerBot Desktop consists of five sections: Explore, Library, Prepare, Store, and Learn.

    Use Store and Explore to find 3D models, Library to keep them organized, and Prepare to send them to your MakerBot 3D Printer for printing. Note: the Store and Learn tab are no longer active.
