Datakit, CAD data exchange software vendor, has developed a library to write 3MF files (3D Manufacturing Format).
While a STL file only defines the geometry of the model to print, the 3MF format can also define other data such as colors or materials to print.
This file format, created in 2015 by the 3MF consortium, is designed to become a standard for 3D printing. That is why Datakit, as an expert in data exchange, has worked on the development of a 3MF format writing library.
So, with CrossManager, the Datakit standalone converter, users can now convert models coming from many software (as CATIA, Inventor, SOLIDWORKS, NX, Creo Parametric...) to 3MF. They therefore have a simple way to get files compatible with most 3D printers.
