5th Gen Makerbot Z-Homing issue with Firmware 1.3

The Firmware 1.3 for Makerbot Replicator 5th gen machines is known to occasionally cause a Z (up down direction) Homing issue. Makerbot is aware of the problem and appoligises. A new version will be out soon.

Reverting back to the prior firmware will rectify the problem.

You do this through your Makerbot Desktop Software by going to : DEVICES -> UPDATE FIRMWARE

You machine must already be connected via USB cable and you must have internet access

You can choose the Firmware to upload onto your machine, simply choose the one prior to the latest 1.3 version
