Windows 10 and Raspberry Pi add wireless printing to 3D printers
23 May 2016
Microsoft has launched a Windows IoT Core app for the Raspberry Pi that allows for wireless printing on various types of 3D printers.
The Microsoft app, Network 3D Printer, equips the Raspberry Pi to receive print requests wirelessly and then forward them on to a 3D printer. The app will allow more than one Windows 10 computer to share the same printer.
The Raspberry Pi connects to the 3D printer via USB and will broadcast the printer’s location on the network, much like setting up a normal printer.
The app supports more than a dozen printers and these include:
• Lulzbot Taz 6
• Makergear M2
• Printrbot Play, Plus and Simple
• Prusa i3 and i3 Mk2
• Ultimaker Original and Original+
• Ultimaker 2 and 2+
• Ultimaker 2 Extended and Extended+
Raspberry Pi owners are free to download the app now.
