3D Manufacturing Format

An XML based file format used in additive manufacturing to define a part to be printed. As an alternative to STL format, it still uses facets to describe the part surface but also has support for color and texture specification, a way to efficiently describe lattice structures, and support for multiple materials. It is also extensible and other part characteristics can be included.
