Firmware Updates for Zortrax M200 Plus

Remember that to download and install firmware newer than 2.3.0, it is necessary to register your Zortrax device first. The registration process is simple and has to be done only once per each device. Registered products will receive authorized firmware guaranteeing the best possible performance and access to new features as soon as they are implemented. You can register your Zortrax device at: zortrax.com/register.
