Microsoft does for 3D printing what it did for 2D printing — makes it mainstream

Microsoft does for 3D printing what it did for 2D printing — makes it mainstream | 3D Printing Future | Scoop.it

 

 

Microsoft, the maker of the most popular desktop operating systems, appears to have brought 3D printing fully into the mainstream.

 

The company announced at its Build developer conference on Wednesday that it will be adding built-in support for 3D printers as part of Windows 8.1.

 

The additional features stand to make 3D printing as easy and standardized as 2D printing, which was once (if you can believe it) an involved process.

 

Microsoft also announced it has started selling the Makerbot Replicator 2, a desktop 3D printer, in its Palo Alto and San Francisco stores (the Build conference, conveniently enough, kicked off in San Francisco on Wednesday).

 

The 3D printer currently retails for just under $2,200. The news comes a week after MakerBot announced that it would be acquired by 3D technology company Stratasys.
