During our session, we'll discuss the changes and current file-specific problems in additive manufacturing that impact the skillsets and adoption required to succeed in tomorrow's world. Our focus will revolve around how the 3MF format allows design applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services and printers, eliminating the issues with currently available formats. 

3MF is on a mission to solve data interoperability challenges that the 3D printing industry faces today with a comprehensive file specification format that moves beyond solely communicating file geometry and includes material, color and printer specifications. Our session aims to inform manufacturing professionals of our open-source specification that's becoming widely available within leading industry platforms and is allowing companies to focus more on innovation and less on having to fix problems associated with other 3D file formats.

Additive manufacturing professionals will learn the advantages of the 3MF specification, how it compares to file specifications used today and how it helps streamline workflows by capturing specifications and reducing error corrections. Designers will learn how to control their end-result through specifications and design details that will travel with their design files by using 3MF. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the advantages of the 3MF specification as it compares to the 3D file formats currently available and where it's now available.
  • Know where to access our open-source, royalty-free 3MF core and public 3MF extension specifications.
  • Comprehend how the completeness and accuracy of the 3MF specification solves communication issues between software systems and manufacturing equipment on the factory floor.
