Your First Print


Windows 8.1 has recently dropped signed drivers to recognize your Printrbot.  For other versions of Windows, download the required USB driver from, right click on it and “Run as Administrator” to install the INF file. It should create a new COM port that you can then use in Repetier to connect.  Click here for a helpful user created guide.  Windows 8 users – if you are still having trouble, see this guide.
