In case you haven’t heard, 3MF is a new file format that is being designed from the ground up for 3D printing. It addresses many of the issues inherent in other formats like .STL, .OBJ and others. Not only does it describe a part’s geometry, but can also include lots of other useful data about materials, colors and more.
3MF is already in use by dozens of companies including Dassault Systemes, Materialise, Microsoft and others. But perhaps the biggest opportunity in the near term is with HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology, which accepts 3MF, helping to automate workflow.
DigiFabster has many customers who utilize HP’s MJF machines and we’re excited to announce that 3MF files can now be uploaded directly through the software’s web-based widget.
