PrintTask.Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the PrintTask supports 3D manufacturing devices, like a 3D printer.

 property bool Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
bool Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled();

void Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled(bool value);
public bool Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled { get; set; }
var boolean = printTask.is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled;
printTask.is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled = boolean;
Public Property Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled As Boolean

Property Value



True, if 3D manufacturing devices are supported.


This property works together with IsPrinterTargetEnabled to determine which devices are enumerated when the user extends the print charm. When IsPrinterTargetEnabled is true, the print charm displays conventional printing devices, like 2D printers. When Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled is true, the print charm displays 3D devices like 3D printers. When both IsPrinterTargetEnabled and Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled are true, the print charm displays both 2D printers and 3D printers.

By default, IsPrinterTargetEnabled is true and Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled is false.


UWP apps that support 3D printing in Windows 8.1 must set IsPrinterTargetEnabled to false and Is3DManufacturingTargetEnabled to true in order to enumerate only 3D printers in the print charm.
