5 5  The existing limitations in available model descriptive file formats, such as STL and others, lead the leading brands to get together and formulate a more extensible file format for 3D printing. An important consideration was to how applications should pass model data to 3D printers. The 3MF consortium, hence, came into being to back a new 3D file format called 3MF with the aim to make it extendible enough to cater the needs of 3D printing. Several companies were part of this consortium including Microsoft, Autodesk, Dassault Systems, Netfabb, SLM, HP and others. Microsoft donated its 3D file format work-in-progress as the starting point for the 3MF Consortium’s collaborative further development of the specification.

9 9  3MF is an XML-based data format – human-readable compressed XML — that includes definitions for data related to 3D manufacturing, including third-party extensibility for custom data. The 3MF file format was designed keeping in mind the limitations and issues faced by other 3D file formats. This lead to the formulation of 3MF file format that is:

18 18  The specifications for 3MF file format are hosted over [[Github>>]] for public access and continuous updates. The current published version is 1.2.3 that describes the set of conventions for the use of XML and other widely available technologies to describe the content and appearance of one or more 3D models. Developers, who want to build systems for processing 3MF file formats, can refer to these specifications for implementation purpose.

It includes a well-defined set of parts and relationships that fullfill particular purpose in the document. This also makes the format follow the package feature including digital signatures and thumbnails.
