We do encourage all users to be on the latest release. You are welcome to remain on older versions, but we will only be able to provide limited support (and no bug fixes) to older versions. Please consider upgrading to the latest version.
Please note that version 4 and above require a license key to operate - see Licensing for details.
Please follow the instructions detailed on the Installation Overview page. This is also the order listed in the quick access menu on the left side of every page on this wiki.
4. Repetrel. Select ONE of the following
4.1. Version 2.865
4.2. Version 3.084c
4.3. Version 4.x (you are here now)
After you have completed steps 1-3, this page is step 4, the Repetrel download.
The Repetrel download will install the Repetrel software (release 4.004_D as of 5 Dec 2019) as well as the firmware for your 407 (30M, ESR) or 429 (16A, EHR) Motion Controller, your 103 Print Head and Hot Bed Controllers, and controllers for the CO2 laser, 3-phase spindle tool, and extra axes. This install must be carried out per the instructions below, so that Repetrel and its dependent resources will be found in the expected locations.
Contact us if you are (or wish to be) a beta site for Repetrel version 4. email@example.com

On new (clean) installs, you MUST run Slic3r.exe BEFORE launching Repetrel. Exit the default settings too, then open the Preferences menu and configure Slic3r to run in expert mode, then exit.
- Download http://hyrel3d.net/downloads/repetrel/SW-4.004_D-FW-4.004d.rar This contains:
- Motion Controller firmware
- 103 PH/HB and other Controller firmware (see Firmware for compatibilities)
- Extract the contents - actually drag the new repetrel folder to your desktop
- Rename previous C:/repetrel to C:/repetrel.old (or similar)
- Move your extracted repetrel directory to C:/repetrel
Software upgrade complete. Occasionally a user will have to point existing shortcuts to the new executible, C:/repetrel/bin/repetrel.exe
NOTE: Repetrel must be set to a rate of 38400 bps to connect to the motion controller!
If you already have a Version 4 install, and just want to upgrade to the latest (dfu version 4.004d as of 5 Dec 2019), then you don't need the entire Repetrel directory; download the bin directory, rename your old bin directory to... bin.old, and put the new one under C:\repetrel\
Note, any upgrade should include upgrading your firmware, both on the motion controller and on the accessories (heads and beds). See Firmware.
Please proceed to steps 5-8 to complete your install or upgrade.
