Thank you for updating us on this new IEEE workgroup (C3DP):
I have reached out to the IEEE-SA Liaison to learn more about the scope of their work and determine the feasibility and usefulness of a formal liaison relationship between the IEEE-ISTO Printer Working Group and IEEE C3DP workgroup. My hope is that the P3030 standard will be made freely available, otherwise it will be useless in the consumer space which is currently dominated by printers utilizing open source software and/or hardware.
In any case, I think we should continue developing the IPP extension white paper since it doesn't sound like P3030 will actually define any interface protocols.
I also intend to expand to include definitions of the corresponding PWG Print Job Ticket elements which will allow our job ticket to be embedded in 3MF and other XML-based 3D formats for simple web form submission of objects for printing.

>> PISCATAWAY, N.J., USA, 02 September 2015 – IEEE, the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announced today that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has approved development of IEEE P3030™ Draft Standard for Consumer 3D Printing.
>> IEEE P3030 is being crafted to define an architectural framework for consumer 3D printing, including descriptions of various domains, definitions of domain abstractions and identification of commonalities between different domains. Because consumer 3D printing involves unique standards requirements, IEEE P3030 is planned to provide a needed blueprint for data abstraction, quality, protection and safety. The architectural framework for consumer 3D printing is intended to be a reference model that defines relationships among various domains and common architecture elements, and that addresses all contingencies related to the industry, regulatory bodies and consumers.
>> “Consumer 3D printing technology is emerging rapidly and there is a need to incentivize industry adoption of standards specific to the marketplace, and to be cognizant of unique challenges where 3D printed items from a wide range of future equipment will need to produce identical results in order to achieve broader market acceptance,” said Yu Yuan, chair, IEEE Consumer 3D Printing Working Group. “IEEE P3030 is focused on standards development to establish quality metrics and accuracy grades so that printed materials at the consumer level can be assembled faultlessly, while also addressing issues related to privacy, security and control measures.”
>> IEEE will host several workshops on consumer 3D printing to collect input and solicit participation for IEEE P3030. The first workshop will be held during the 2015 IEEE Global High Tech Congress on Electronics (GHTCE) in conjunction with the 17th China Hi-Tech Fair on 16-21 November 2015 in Shenzhen, the largest electronics industry base in China.
