Windows 10 3D Print Driver

Recommended Posts

Posted · Windows 10 3D Print Driver

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?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
