Isn't the latest version on Mac in sync with the Windows version (software, not drivers)? I thought it was.

Ah, interesting. I'm running it on an iMac (not that that should matter) and haven't really had any problems with it...compared to the old days is was WAY better. I haven't even had it freeze up on me.

That's great news, but has anyone actually got a link to it? Or will Windows 8.1 detect and download automatically? I'm not at home so can't check right now.

Yeah I think those of us with experience of old versions are more tolerant (and used to) it's issues so relatively the latest version is great but it's not as good as the Windows version. Neither are below par for commercial software. Still very Beta feeling releases.

The windows 8.1 driver will appear in printers and you'll see the UP there. Properties can also be changed in the printer. You need to download from the Microsoft store the 3D builder app as that is the only app that talks 3d printing to it at the moment.

It's implementation feels a bit clunky, but this is a Microsoft thing.

If you have the Up! windows software installed on windows 8.1 you can download the Microsoft 3D software here ... http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us ... 590d5781f2

Make sure the printer is initialised, and maybe warm the plate using the up software (driver control is very basic at the moment), choose your model and press print.

outputs good prints..

note: always add raft..

The interface is nice and there are some good models to play with, will load STL's.

Anyone else worked out file formats etc.? .3MF
