3D Printers supporting Windows 8.1 direct printing API

    Question

  • Hi,

    Does someone know which 3D printers have drivers that are supported by the Windows 8 API? (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/bg183398.aspx)

    It seems to work with 3D System's Cube 2 (http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2013/08/22/3d-printing-support-in-windows-8-1-explained/), but I've tried my Cube 3 with, e.g., the 3D Builder app (http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/3d-builder/75f3f766-13b3-45e9-a62f-29590d5781f2), and Windows won't find the printer.

    Thanks!
