Autodesk and Microsoft have joined forces to integrate the Autodesk Spark 3D Printing platform into Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system that has just launched worldwide.
Spark is a professional 3D printing software platform developed by Autodesk and provide APIs for each stage of the 3D printing workflow to enable businesses quickly add 3D printing functionality to applications.
It will be interesting to see how the new Spark integration functions with 3D printers and the Windows 10 operating system that launched late last month on July 29th and has been installed on over 14 million systems in just the first 48 hours after launch. Autodesk explains more about the Spark platform :
While additive manufacturing offers unprecedented opportunities, it is still complex, expensive and not always reliable. Until now, proprietary technologies and fragmented processes have limited innovation and adoption in 3D printing. To address these challenges, Autodesk developed Spark, the first open professional 3D printing software platform.
Spark will offer a set of industry standards for all aspects of the 3D printing ecosystem: software, hardware, materials and services. Together, this community of innovators can improve how things are made and even change the very nature of what we create.
