Why is the on board camera in my MakerBot replica Z18 3D printer stop working? I have a problem in making the full software of my MakerBot replica Z18 3D printer to function properly, when I tried all I could to make the software function well and it fails, I later download another driver for the printer. After installing the driver, the on board camera fails to work. I later uninstall the driver, but the camera is still not working. How can I fix this problem?
Help, on board camera in 3D printer sop working?
If there is a problem with the onboard camera even if you install the driver that comes with it, I guess you should check if your operating system is supported. For the Makerbot Replicator Z18 3D printer, the supported operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7 and higher, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and higher, Linux Ubuntu 12.04 and higher, and Fedora 19 and higher.
So, if you are using Microsoft Windows, make sure you are running Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1. The Makerbot Desktop Software, the software bundled with the printer, will not operate on Microsoft Windows Vista and earlier versions of Microsoft Windows. If you have either Windows XP or Windows Vista, there’s no way you can make it work without encountering issues.
The best way to fix it, in case you have Windows XP or Windows Vista, is to upgrade to Microsoft Windows 7. If you can’t upgrade your operating system for any reason, just do a fresh installation of Windows 7 or higher operating system. That’s the only way the program will work normally so goes the onboard camera.
