Well, it makes for me.
Lot's of memebers of our group at university asks me: What Linux
distro should I grap for 3D printing?
If we have a 3D printing spin, I could point them directly to that.
You don't need that. You can just tell them to use Fedora and install the printrun
package (example). If there was a spin for every activity out there, Fedora would have
literally, and i mean it, thousands of spins.
You just need to watch out for those binary executables and such, because Fedora
Guidelines are quite strict about inclusion of binary, patented or non-free software.

I am not sure, if this is going to work, from my point of view, the
slicing profiles are very machine and material specific. You can get a
very huge number of profiles.
Once you get involved, we can work out a way of distributing the profiles, be it RPM
packages or not.
