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.

Packages waiting for your review

Currently none, 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.

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 alternate repositories to get them.
