Preform and Power PC Error?

Okay, just bought a used 1+ and excited to get started. But after downloaded Preform to my macbook pro, the program won’t open saying that “power pc programs are not supported.” I can’t believe this software is a Power PC program. Why am I getting this error?


Hey Deke,

Try downloading the program again from and make sure to click the Download for Mac Link. You should download a .dmg file which mac will allow you to mount and install. If you are still having problems I’d recommend contacting support, they’ll help you get this sorted out.

Thanks. Did a clean re-install and for whatever reason the problem went away. First part printed right out of the gate really well. Second part didn’t stick to build plate, but at least I’m up and running.
