I'm Using ReplicatorG and Can't Figure Out Which Is The Right Serial Port For My Printer

Current Step:

Sometimes, when using ReplicatorG, it can be difficult to tell which serial port you need to select, even if your drivers have been installed correctly. Here's a tip that should help:

Open ReplicatorG with your MakerBot Replicator disconnected. Go to the Machine > Connection (Serial Port) menu and note the port numbers you see there. Now, plug in your MakerBot Replicator, go back to the Machine > Connection (Serial Port) and choose the Rescan serial ports option. Have a look at the selections again -- if a different port has appeared, that will be the correct port for your MakerBot Replicator. If you don’t see an additional port, make sure that you’ve successfully installed the driver.

MakerBot is no longer actively supporting ReplicatorG. We recommend upgrading to MakerBot Desktop.
