The 3MF format is designed to be an additive manufacturing format, with the complete model information contained within a single archive: mesh, textures, materials, colors and print ticket. 3MF provides a clear definition of manifoldness — open source code available for rapid validation and there is no ambiguity for models with self-intersections.

 

Transforms and object references are supported, with multiple objects contained within the single archive. Single objects can be referenced or moved without changing the mesh, and multiple identical objects can be placed referencing the same mesh.

 

3MF is extensible, allowing more information to be added, such as build instructions, notes, certifications or proprietary information.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
