Do I need to install firmware?

I am new to 3D printing so this is probably a dumb question.

I have a new Wanhao Duplicator I3 printer.  I have downloaded the Repetier-Host software to my Windows 7 computer.  My PC gave a message that it was downloading a driver when I plugged the printer in for the first time.

I am just not sure if I need to download the firmware or not.  I assume NOT, but I just want to make sure.

Thanks in advance for any help!


  • Prebuild printers normally come with firmware installed, so you only need the driver and a host software.
