Microsoft OS 8.1 works with 3D software for home and office users
Microsoft has released a 3D printing app for its Windows 8.1 operating system. The software makes 3D printing possible because it is native to the operating system, meaning the OS offers plug-andplay support for printers, understands 3D file formats, and connects lots of apps to provide a seamless printing experience.
Now, with the 3D Builder app, Microsoft has made it easier for people to create and print objects in 3D.
3D Builder software has a catalogue of objects you can create from ornaments to toys. The clean, simple user interface lets you scale, rotate and adjust what you want to print.
Add multiple objects to a single print – even stack or push objects into one another to create new ones. Printing 3D objects created in other applications or ones that are downloaded from the internet is easy with the app.
Home users of 3D printers are entering an era in which everyone will be able to create and print three dimensional objects.
There are a number of 3D printers on the market and companies such as 3D Systems, Autodesk, Dassault Systemes, MakerBot, netfabb, Materialise, Stratasys, Tiertime (PP3DP), and many others are making 3D printing a reality. In fact, 3D Systems, MakerBot and TierTime are supporting Windows 8.1.
