We were sharing with you earlier the news that MakerBot’s 3D printer driver is now Available on Windows 8.1 and now comes a fresh news regarding 3D printing, this time straight from Microsoft. The Redmond company has been a strong supporter for 3D printing with Windows 8.1 as it has built a class driver for 3D printers inside Windows’ latest operating system version.

The 3D Builder app can be used to make slight modifications from a library of 3D objects like simple toys, household items, miniatures and seasonal objects. You can also load existing CAD projects into the app, but, unfortunately, the ability to create 3D printed models inside the app is lacking. Here’s the app’s description from  the Windows Store:

Meet 3D Builder – the best place to view, prepare, and print your 3D models on Windows 8.1-ready 3D printers!c3D Builder is a fun, easy to use, free app that helps you turn bits into atoms and explore the exciting world of 3D printing. It also includes a library of example 3D objects to get you started. Whether you are an experienced enthusiast or new to the world of 3D printing, 3D Builder is fun for Makers of all ages.

Not too many folks have a 3D printer at home, mainly because their prices have to climb down so that more users could afford it. Until then, 3D printers are used more by enterprises. For them, the inclusion of 3D printing support in Windows 8.1 is a much welcome upgrade and now using this app they can easily print to their Windows 8 compatible printers.
