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?
