Advancing the print industry with a universal specification for 3D printing

3MF is an industry consortium working to define a 3D printing format that allows design and engineering applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services and printers. Our goal is to provide a specification that eliminates the issues with currently available file formats, and allows companies to focus on innovation, rather than on basic interoperability issues.
