Mcor Technologies, a provider of full-color printing systems, has added support for the 3MF file format in its Orange software. The 3MF format allows full-color digital data to be exported to the Mcor ARKe for full-color 3D printing, the company states. The company is showcasing the technology at this week’s Microsoft Build developer conference in San Francisco.
The 3MF file format is through the work of the 3MF Consortium collaborating to define a standardized 3D printing format. It allows design applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services and printers, the company states.
“We are in this business to expand the possibilities of 3D printing and make it accessible to everyone, so we couldn’t be more excited about our new support for 3MF through Mcor Orange Software,” said Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO, Mcor. “Without a doubt, this is huge news for the entire 3D design and printing industry, and will have positive implications moving forward.”
