Microsoft’s 3D Printing App '3D Builder' Arrives on Windows 8.1
While not a part of the mainstream yet, 3D printing has a small audience that is getting bigger with the passage of time. That is why Microsoft has just released its 3D Builder which is to arrive on Windows 8.1. The creation of solid objects whether toys, decorative objects or tools for practical purposes will be a reality in every home one day.
This is where computer technology goes from the information revolution to the dimension of reality itself. It is indeed the very stuff of which dreams are made of. With the 3D Builderapp, ordinary people may construct objects in the safety of their home environment. All they will need is a 3d printer and the specific application.
You may form the scale value, the rotation and adjustability of the 3D model of the object of desire that you want to create. Among the long list of solid stuff that you may manufacture are: a toy train for your son, a piece of ornamental jewelry for your wife or a decoration for your living room. The future sure looks bright and optimistic when you look at it from the angle of 3D printing.
Computer technology has definitely taken a leap ahead thanks to this form of practical creativity. Among the many 3D printers available in the market are: 3D Systems, Autodesk, MakerBot, Stratasys and TierTime. Among these 3D Systems, MakerBot and TierTime are compatible with Windows 8.1.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
