    Does this FW work for Cubepro Duo?

    Yes, but it is tricky to initiate the install. You also have to downgrade to v2.00. Remember that carts must be initialized to under 100%. You cannot do that with the FW upgrade in place.

    Went to 3D Systems site, to download the software, and the storefront is closed (which is no surprise to anyone).
    How does one get the software to run a used machine?

    Hello everyone,
    I am a proud owner of a Cube 3D Printer Gen3 (LOL) and I have applied the 1.14b firmware. It seems to be working fine. From what I am reading there is newly updated firmware available (2.00) but there is a lot of conversation on what printers it will work on. Can someone clarify for me? What is the latest firmware is available and what should I be using.

    As an additional request. I would like to monitor the status of my print jobs outside of the "Cube Print" software does anyone have any advice?

    Thank you advance.

    Greg

    Tom,
    Thanks for the link. Just to clarify, is the link you sent for the software to be installed on the p.c., or the firmware for the printer?
    I am looking for the software to put on my p.c.
    If this is what I'm looking for, what do I do with an XML file?

    The link covers everything Cubify. Firmware, apps, notes, etc. Someone really should back that site up somewhere.

    Could you point me in a direction of how to proceed, as I have no idea what to do with an XML file, in order to run it on my p.c.
    Thanks for your help too!

    Sorry, indeed there may need to be instruction.
    The root site is http://cubify.s3.amazonaws.com/
    This should open up the XML file to see all the data.
    In this case, the data are pointers.
    You can search the site for your particular file but you need some level of understanding of what you are looking for.
    v2.00 and CubePro are good search parameters.
    You will run across this entry:

    <Contents>
    <Key>Printers/Cubepro/cubepro V2.00.ar</Key>
    <LastModified>2017-05-07T23:33:45.000Z</LastModified>
    <ETag>"d6909d4b7c2043693c717751c70e62d4-6"</ETag>
    <Size>34539296</Size>
    <StorageClass>REDUCED_REDUNDANCY</StorageClass>
    </Contents>

    Take the red parts and attach it to the primary link - http://cubify.s3.amazonaws.com/
    ...and you get: http://cubify.s3.amazonaws.com/Printers/Cubepro/cubepro V2.00.ar
    Going to that link will initiate a download request of the file you are looking for.
