3D Printer not recognized by Solidworks Feature 'Print3D'

I am using a 'Maker Gear M2 rev. D' model 3D Printer on my Windows 10 computer. In SolidWorks 2016 x64 Edition SP03, I am trying to use the "Print3D" feature to print a part model, but I am receiving the message "There are no 3D printers installed on this computer."


The 3D Printer should already be installed on the computer, as I was already able to use the program Pronterface to 3D print a model

from this computer.


Has anyone with the same 3D printer been able to use the "Print 3D" feature in SolidWorks successfully? If so, what did you have to do first?


If anyone else has a different 3D printer but also had this issue and overcame it, what was your workaround? 


Thank you.
