Microsoft has released a major update of 3D Builder with new features and improvements, including a partnership with the 3D printing giant 3D Systems.

The new version of 3D Builder comes with the following new features and enhancements:

  • Cloud Print (buy a print online from 3D Systems)
  • Overhauled main control, new selection control
  • New trophy parts 3D models
  • Windows RT support
  • Save as STL

In recent months we’ve seen household names such as HP, and now Microsoft, discuss future operations and strategies that involve 3D printing. This begs the question: if Microsoft is partnering with 3D Systems, will Samsung or Apple end up joining Stratasys?

In addition to covering 3D printing and the maker movement, Dennis writes about politics, finance, technology and the markets. His work has been published in Information Week, Jerusalem Post, AFP, PJ Media, Times of Israel and in several other notable publications.
