3MF Consortium

The File Format Optimized for 3D Printing

View the SpecificationsExplore 3MF on GitHub

Advancing additive manufacturing with a universal specification for data storage and communication

3MF is an industry consortium working to define a 3D printing format that allows design and engineering applications to send full-fidelity 3D models and additive manufacturing data to a mix of other software, hardware and services. Our goal is to provide a specification that eliminates the issues with previously used file formats that were not optimized for industrial additive manufacturing workflows, and allows companies to focus on innovation, rather than on basic interoperability issues.
