    Connecting to a Networked Printer via MakerBot Print

    1.  Locate the USB cable that came with your MakerBot Replicator Mini+.

    2. Insert the USB-B end of the cable into the port on the side of your Mini+ and insert the USB-A end of the cable into one of the USB ports on your computer. We do not recommend connecting with USB hubs or extension cords.

    3. Power on your printer and open MakerBot Print on your computer.

    4. The Mini+ will take a few minutes to boot up. Once the light on the printer’s action button has stopped blinking, you should see the Mini+ appear on MakerBot Print.

    5. Expand the Printers menu and select the Mini+ to access the Printer’s menu.

    6. Select Utilities > Network Preferences.

    7. Select your Wi-Fi network from the drop down menu and input your password.

    8. Once connected to your Wifi network, disconnect your USB cable. You should now be successfully connected.
