As we mentioned earlier today
is really on board this whole 3D printing
thing, loading Windows 8.1
with native 3D printing capabilities and working closely with MakerBot
to develop a driver for the latter’s Replicator 2 3D printer, but that’s not all. Microsoft also now has an app called 3D Builder that lets users more easily set up a design for 3D printing.
3D Builder, which is available for free in the Windows Store starting today, lets users manipulate existing designs stashed in the app’s library or upload their own designs made in other applications. Features include the ability to scale, arrange, rotate, and adjust objects and even stack or push designs together to create something new.
If you want to see the app in action, you can hit up a Microsoft Store this weekend and also check out MakerBot 3D printers. You can also just download the app from the Windows Store here
