Use Microsoft’s free 3D builder app to print objects to Windows 8.1-ready 3D printers


The Windows 8.1 3D Builder app is an awesome free 3D printing app that we’ve included in the best Windows 8 apps for the past week (November 2013). The app has been released in the Windows Store only a week ago, but it has already received an early update that fixes some annoying bugs and improves performance.

In a recent post on the Extreme Windows Blog, Gavin Gear from Microsoft explains how you can use the 3D Builder app to import, view, manipulate, and print 3D models on your Windows 8.1 device. He recaps the main features of the app:

  • Support for importing .3mf, .obj, and .stl files
  • Built-in library of ready to print 3D models
  • Move, rotate, and scale models on the virtual build platform
  • Print multiple models simultaneously
  • Easy panning, rotation, and zooming of view
  • Select, duplicate, and delete individual models
  • Works with any 3D printer that has Windows 8.1 driver
