What is a 3W file?

A 3W file is a model created by XYZware, software bundled with XYZprinting printers such as da Vinci Pro. It contains a sliced model of a 3D object in Base64 Encode G-code. 3W files are created by XYZware then transmitted to a 3D printer for printing.

More Information

In order to create 3D objects, a user converts the object into a series of slices that are printed vertically one at a time. A 3W file saves these slices in formatted G-code, which is a language used in CAD manufacturing for controlling automated machine tools.

The XYZware program that comes with select 3D printers developed by XYZprinting and allows you to adjust printing settings, including speed, print support, and Retraction (printing without streaking or smudging when the extruder moves over the print).
