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.

Latest Analysis
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
