3D printin is out of science-fiction movies and is a reality today. Now if you want to order 3D prints you can do that. Staples Printing Systems Division has signed a deal with Mcor Technologies to launch a new 3D printing service called “Staples Easy 3D,” online via the Staples Office Centre. All you need is upload the electronic files to the Staples Office Centre and pick up the models in their nearby Staples stores, or have them shipped to their address.
“Given our market leadership in commercial print, why would we ever stop at two dimensions?” said President Wouter Van Dijk, president of the Staples Printing Systems Division in Europe. “Customised parts, prototypes, art objects, architectural models, medical models and 3D maps are items customers need today, in a more affordable and more accessible manner. Mcor will help us to keep prices low, quality high and colour brilliant as we meet the demand.”
The online platform for Staples Easy 3D will initially be made available in the Netherlands and Belgium in Q1 2013 and will be rolled out quickly to other countries, according to Oscar Pakasi, director business development of Staples Printing Systems, who is responsible for developing the concept and the design of the Staples Easy 3D print service platform.
