3D Printing with Windows 8.1

I been playing with a 3d printer for  while but it been a pain configuring the drivers. Now with Windows 8.1  (BETA) for now I just choose my 3d printer just like any other printer..

The MakerBot Replicator 2 and the 3D Systems Cube printers are already supported with plug-n-play compatibility and their functions are now tied into the Window’s GUI.

Shanen Boettcher, General Manager of the Startup Business Group at Microsoft said in a blog post, “Remember when we said there’d be a PC on every desktop? How about this — a factory on every desktop!” And concerning the adoption of 3D printing, commented “But will 3D printing go mainstream? We think so – which is why we’ve built it into Windows – the world’s most popular platform. This includes all of the things you’d expect from Windows: plug-n-play support for printers, enabling apps to seamlessly submit 3D print jobs, understanding 3D file formats, and connecting lots of apps with lots of hardware to deliver an end-to-end solution for customers. We want this to be so simple that anyone can set up their own table-top factory.”
