Link to download new software version:



  1. Is the firmware download included in the software download? I've downloaded and installed the new Cubex software, but when I go to update the firmware I just get "Firmware updated error: Bootloader not detected". I've used the "How to update the firmware" link, put my printer into USB Bootloader V4 mode, and have it connected to my computer. What am I missing? Does anyone have any other resources on how to do this? Cubex's instructions aren't really helping me.

    1. Can't find the 1.08 firmware too...

    2. HI, I asked Cubify, and they sent the solution to me..and it works!
      Boot loader not detected is a common error. This means your computer is not recognizing the printer. To resolve this:

      1) Leave the Printer connected to the computer through the USB cable. close out of all software.

      2) Once all software is closed, restart the computer

      3) Once the computer reboots, reopen the software ( your computer should now recognize the printer)

      4) Follow steps on updating firmware

    3. tom,
      i had the same problem on a new cubex single just removed from the packing;
      turns out the ribbon that connects the USB board to the main board was disconnected at the main board. i had to remove the bottom plastic platform to access the main board and reconnect the ribbon. once this was done the firmware update went through without a problem.
      hope this helps

  2. Taked to Cubify regarding frimware v.1.08. The newest version is 1.07 not 1.08.

  3. hi,
    I am a dealer, in this new version i have many erros like "can open g code" when finish the build. You have this problem to? (WIN8 x64)

    1. I have the same trouble : "Error loading Gcode file" (Win7 x64). All was ok with the previous version of this software. Somebody has a solution ?

  4. I have exactly the same trouble : "Error loading Gcode file" while building. I'm on Win7 x64. Somebody found any solution ?

  5. Exactement le même problème avec beaucoup de pièces "error loading G-code file"... Anyone has a solution?

  6. hi all,

    I have recently .bought a cubex duo but it did not come with any drivers or software. when I switch on and scroll through the options on the front panel it says v1.07 is in the machine but when I plug into my laptop nothing registers.
    could anyone give me a link to where I may be able to download the software and drivers please? I am currently using windows 10.
