The Printer Working Group

Our members include printer and multi-function device manufacturers, print server developers, operating system providers, print management application developers, and industry experts. We make printers, multi-function devices, and the applications and operating systems supporting them work together better.

The PWG Last Call of IPP Shared Infrastructure Extensions (INFRA) has begun. This specification defines an IPP binding of the Cloud Imaging Model that allows IPP Printers to interface with shared services based in the network infrastructure, i.e., software-defined networks, and/or through Cloud solutions to remotely obtain and process jobs and documents, and provide state and configuration changes to those services.

3D Printing and PWG Standards 7 Days Ago

What do two-legged dogs, a floppy airway, and a custom-built car have in common? The answer: 3D printing and PWG standards.

The PWG is currently investigating how to best support networked 3D printers and invites all interested developers to participate in our discussions. The next 3D Printing BOF will take place on February 4, 2015 at the February 2015 face-to-face meeting. The PWG also has a 3D printing mailing list for discussing potential solutions and the necessary data models.
