3D Printing SIG

The Fedora 3D Printing SIG's goal is to make Fedora the best platform for 3D printing.

There is no formal process for participating; joining the mailing list, hanging out on IRC, or participating in meetings are all great ways to get involved.

A little self-introduction on the mailing list would be nice, too. And, if you want to, add yourself to our members-section above.

There is now a FAS group as well; so if you want to get a badge, you can join. Plese introduce yourself on the list before applying.

Packages with * are not maintained by the members of the SIG, but are important for us.

Packages waiting for your review

Feel free to add the link here or send an e-mail to our mailing list, if you have some new packages waiting for review.

  • M3D-Linux Linux program that can communicate with the Micro M3D printer
  • libarcus Communication library between internal components for Ultimaker software
  • slic3r-prusa3d Slic3r Prusa Edition

Packages not yet in Fedora

Those packages are not yet ready to be in Fedora:

Packages that will never be in Fedora

Those packages are not able to be in Fedora, because they are not free software. Use known alternate repositories to get them.

  • netfabb-basic
  • kisslicer
