Pretty soon you’ll be able to print your 3D projects at the local Staples.
A new service called “Staples Easy 3D” will allow customers to upload their designs to Staples’ website, then pick up the printed objects at their local office supply megastore, or have them shipped to their home or business — not unlike the photo- and document-printing service the company already offers.
The project was announced today at Euromold 2012 by 3-D printer manufacturer Mcor Technologies, who is partnering with Staples to provide its new Iris printers for the service.
An interesting decision, though one we suspect will work out for the company based on the increasing popularity of 3D printing thanks to companies like MakerBot Industries. Between this and the introduction of more Dunder Mifflin office supplies, we think we might be spending a little more time at this particular office supply chain in the future.
