Microsoft's 3D printer app


#1

Anybody tried this?


#2

Yea, I played with it but it only has support for only a couple of commercial 3D printers so far. I’m in talks with them to get the SDK at the end of the week to try and get a driver built for my printer. Hopefully, that will be my Thanksgiving vacation project.

It’s very nice software but currently is very lacking in advanced control of parameters.


#3

Interesting. Bump this thread if/when you get more details on the SDK, please.


#4

Will do.


#5

That sound like a fun project to tackle!

I just got my Microsoft Connect invite. They just posted some info here:

Send an email to ask3dprint@ microsoft.com to request an invite. I’ll be playing with this quite a bit this week.

@ Architect - did you ever get your printer working?


#8

Need to finish electronics.


#9

Which board are you going with?


#10

Probably will put something together out of parts laying around. Thinking about trying it with Lynx actually. I have stepper drivers separately.
