There is a wide adoption of 3D printing today. Over the last few months, there have been many firms that have adopted 3D printing and one of them is Amazon.com. Amazon is the biggest online store in the world and it offers different products and services. Recently, it has added cheap 3D printing service that provides 200 customized on-demand print products.
The 3D printer cost is still high particularly high-end and precise 3D printers. For this reason, Amazon wanted to bring 3D printing to those who cannot afford to buy their own machine. The 3D printed products can be personalized and can range from dog tags, iPhone sleeves and bobble heads.
Amazon has partners with Sculpteo Mixy Labs and 3DLT which are 3D printing companies that will be responsible in printing the customers’ orders. The thing is that Amazon will not be involved with the production process. This means that it is helping startup companies like 3DLT and Sculpteo Mixy Labs. This is also the reason the 3D printer cost is also very competitive.
The new Amazon store will feature user-friendly design templates where clients can put their individual style on each item that they create. It also comes with a 3D product viewer where clients can view the output as a 360-degree virtual model. Once the client is okay with the design, the item needs to be checked out so that the partner company can print the items on demand before shipping to the clients. With these high-tech features, who would have thought that the new Amazon store offers very cheap 3D printing products.
The 3D printer cost can be very expensive for now and it is the reason why Amazon’s new store will become popular among people who want to try get cheap 3D printing items but cannot afford to buy their own printers.
