Fujifilm showcases 3D printing technology at The Digital Show in Melbourne 25-27th May 2012. The 3D printer on display 3D printing technology is a 3DTouch™ 3D Printer from Bits from Bytes (3D Systems).
Fujifilm explains that in the near future retailers could offer 3D printing services to customers, from jewellery, toys to interior decor.
'In a retail environment, a customer could use a kiosk to create their customised 3D product from a range of customisable designs or even a photograph, place their order with the retailer and then return to the store at a later time to pick up the product,' said Michael Mostyn, Fujifilm key account manager at Commercial Division.
'Fujifilm is also looking to make 3D printers available for consumer purchase from retailers in the near future, enabling the family and do-it-yourself enthusiasts to produce low cost, high quality finished parts for their projects at home.' Mr Mostyn said.
