Printer Working Group (PWG) to Address 3D Printing Standards at MAY 21 RAPID + tct Additive Manufacturing Event

PISCATAWAY, N.J., May 17, 2019 – The  Printer Working Group (PWG) will speak May 21, 2019 at the  RAPID+TCT event, Detroit, Mich. Paul Tykodi, PWG IPP Working Group co-chair, will address the work of PWG to standardize and simplify additive (3D) printing across devices.

With printer industry members, PWG has developed and promoted the widely implemented  Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). A subgroup focused on 3D printing has extended IPP to incorporate the requirements of 3D printing to support data exchange and embedding within common 3D file formats including 3MF and 3D PDF documents, so that user intent is preserved regardless of the transport or workflow use.

Tykodi’s session at 3:55 p.m. Eastern will highlight the possible improvement in the efficiency of the additive manufacturing landscape, which could be achieved by having 3D printing equipment implement support for an industry standard way of declaring capabilities and receiving jobs.

Prior to the widespread use of PWG’s IPP Everywhere™ standards, users had to install and continually update software to their computers and other devices to print. Printer makers had to develop, update and distribute a stream of driver updates. IPP Everywhere provides a single universal driver, and the group is working to port the same capabilities to 3D printing. 

About PWG

The IEEE ISTO Printer Working Group (PWG) is a Program of the  IEEE Industry Standard and Technology Organization (ISTO) with members including printer and multi-function device manufacturers, print server developers, operating system providers, print management application developers, and industry experts. Originally founded in 1991 as the Network Printing Alliance, the PWG is chartered to make printers, multi-function devices, and the applications and operating systems supporting them work together better. The PWG enjoys an open standards development process. More information is available at  https://www.pwg.org.
