Mcor Technologies and Staples have teamed up to start a new service that will provide low cost 3D Printing for all, via a service called “Staples Easy 3D”.
The new low cost 3D printing service will be available online via the Staples Office Centre, and will be rolled out in the Netherlands and Belgium during the first quarter of 2013.
The new service will allow customers to upload electronic files in either STL, OBJ, or VRML formats, to the Staples Office Centre and pick up the models at their nearest Staples store, or have them shipped firstly to a specified address. Wouter Van Dijk, president of the Staples Printing Systems Division in Europe, explained in the press release.
“Given our market leadership in commercial print, why would we ever stop at two dimensions?”-“Customized 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 color brilliant as we meet the demand.” Mcor said that the Iris printer supports “more than one million hues simultaneously as it creates photo-realistic physical objects from 3D data.”
The service will offer a resolution of 5760 x 1440 x 508 dpi, and use Mcor’s new Iris 3D printers, and was officially launched at Euromold 2012 exhibition, last week.
