Connecting Via USB Cable

The printer can connect to a computer running Windows® 8.1 or Windows 10 using a standard USB A to USB B cable. It is recommended that you use Cubify Software to prepare your files for printing. However, you may also use any PC application that is Windows 3D print compatible.

Compatible Applications include:

  • Microsoft® 3D Builder
  • Microsoft 3D Scan
  • SolidWorks 2015
  • Autodesk TinkerCad
  • Netfabb Professional
  • Autodesk Mesh Mixer
  • Siemen's JT2Go
  • Siemen's Solid Edge

NOTE: The USB connection is only compatible with computers running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 operating systems. 

  1. Connect a USB A connector to your computer and connect the USB B connector (A) to your printer.

NOTE: When the USB cable is connected, Windows will automatically obtain the driver from Windows Update and install it. An internet connection is required.

NOTE: Once the driver has been installed, you can print from any Windows 3D print-compatible application using the 3D print option.

  1. Once the driver has been installed, you can verify that it installed properly when you see the printer icon in the Devices and Printers section of the control panel.

NOTE: You can also view 3D Systems Cube under Printers in the Device Manager.
