Windows 10 3D Print Driver

Recommended Posts

I had been thinking about the possibility of building off of Microsoft's incomplete 3D Printer driver and slicer code they have published in their developer site. I was curious if anyone else had this idea, and would like to assist/run a project doing this?

My idea is as follows: Using the Cura Engine for the heavy lifting, write a Universal Windows Platform Driver, that wraps the engine, and makes printing to printers such as a RepRap possible from within the 3D Builder app in Windows 10. Combine this with a Kinect v2, and you have an easy setup for 3D printing and Scanning.

Thoughts?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
