I am into the 3D printing hobby ~two years now and have even designed my own printer, but was never really active in any community besides reddit. Finally, a few days ago, I decided to search for a community and found you! So, “Hello everybody!”.
Besides myself I want to introduce my current project (I hope the category is ok).
I always wanted to distribute my 3D print projects in a single file. Including STLs, Readme and maybe notes. 3MF is great to ship multiple STLs in one file, but I don’t know any viewer which is able to show additional information like a extended readme file. Thats why I created one…
3D2P is a desktop application for windows only at the moment (linux on its way). It ships a 3MF viewer (NO electron, if someone is curious about it) which is able to read additional information like STL annotations and a readme out of a 3MF file. Besides the viewer part, the application is also a CLI which ships commands to create a 3MF file. All files created by the CLI are compliant to the 3MF spec (it even uses the offical lib3mf).
Because it can be cumbersome to create a 3MF just with the CLI, I created a Visual Studio Code extension, too. Everything is available at:
The website features an online version of the viewer, too. So try it without any download, if you want to (there is an example 3MF file - created by 3D2P - in the footer, ready to download and test)
Hope you like it!
