Print 3D objects will be almost as easy as printing photos on the site of the corner

Print 3D objects will be almost as easy as printing photos on the site of the corner

Fujifilm knows that printing is on the rise, many people not only to view 3D designs virtually, now many have the chance to play their creations in a physical format, either in plastic or other material.

knows that many people have no access to 3D printing machines because they are expensive and many shops are in universities or in private studios.

So the company is working on a 3D printing service to the general public. The idea is that local stores or photography (and others of this style as professional stationery) have in their store or in another building a 3D printer (such as 3D Systems to illustrate this post), a type of vending that you insert a memory card. Then people can go with your 3D model and order to print it.

The concept is that these machines also include pre-loaded templates gift products (cup, shoes, necklaces, etc..), The buyer only personalize it (colors, text, etc..) And asks to be printed.

And when they took rolls of black and white photography to the shops, you have to return a day later to pick up processing. Similarly with the prints will be 3D, left the order and return later to collect the object.

For now Fujifilm is developing the service and no date for launch but it predicts a boom in commercial 3D printing soon.
