This is the ultimate sign that 3D printing has gone mainstream.

I believe that too, Charles.  Now if Win 8.1 will be supported by a lot of other manufacturers, it will be fine.  I downloaded the 8.1 preview and a number of my programs stopped functioning (mainly Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus).  But I think this will make 3D printing available to anyone who really wants it.

IMO I feel it's a good move by Microsoft. They have to find solutions which will make the users forget or take their minds off from the Windows 8 drama. This will be embraced by the Windows 8 users in a much more positive and proactive manner for sure.

I agree with you.  Once Microsoft creates a direct application, you know that a technology has truly arrived.  It's enjoyable for me to see more and more people get excited over 3D printing (which was once a specialized, niche technology when I first entered the engineering workforce).

I agree, Greg. Five years ago, 3D printing sounded like something from a science fiction novel. Today, its reach has extended beyond the techies and into everyday vocabulary. Microsoft's connection to it will only reinforce that trend.

To find a good printer in Canada. I would suggest using the following companies: Toronto Printer | Calgary Printer | Winnipeg Printer | Montreal Printer | Regina Printer | Saskatoon Printer | Quebec Printer | Ottawa Printer | Edmonton Printer | Vancouver Printer | These companies provide the best and most affordable price in whole Canada. Other printing companies I suggest would be Print Quote Services | Printing Company | Best Local Printer | Some other local cities have great printers as well such as the following: Charlotte Printing | Dallas Printing | Nashville Printing

Nowadays, it is hard to find quality print trader. This is my recommendation for best print trader in the united states Best Print Trader | Lowest Price Printing Wholesale | Print Outsourcing | Print Broker Trade

Lastly, all print should comes with a state of the art Print Management Software. I would highly recommend this print software tool.

More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility.
