Hey Everyone,

I've created Issue #1331 (see
https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues/1331) to gather info and
interest around this new file format being developed by Microsoft and


Open Source examples (licenses tbd) will apparently be appearing via GitHub:



The code to read or write 3MF is available as open source: Microsoft’s
donated code reads STL/OBJ/3MF, writes 3MF, and can use Web Services for
model repair. The source code will be on Github and cross-platform code is
in development.


...and apparently it'll be an open standard and will be relatively patent



3MF members have agreed to make their necessary patent claims available for
implementations of the 3MF Core Specification and 3MF Materials
Specification on a royalty-free basis.  For details, please review the Joint
Development Foundation Working Group Charter Appendix A, Patent Policy
Option 2, available at http://bit.ly/1KqwpFU.
