3D – the new 2D

So many marketing campaigns these days are jumping on the 3D band wagon!  Offering us a 3D smile or 3D smiley faces for our e-mails, do they think we’re stupid?  We live in a 3D world!  So forgive me for being a little sceptical when I first heard about 3D printing. Another gimmick was the first thought that entered my 3D mind!  I pictured a normal flat image which looked 3D when you stared at it for 3 minutes, kind of like one of those old magic pictures.  But I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Check out www.mcortechnologies.com and you’ll see what I mean.

Mcor Technologies Ltd, recognised as one of the world leaders in 3D printing, has struck a deal with Staples Printing Systems Division to launch a new 3D printing service called "Staples Easy 3D," online via the Staples Office Centre, based in Dunleer, County Louth.  Customers will simply upload electronic files to the Staples Office Centre and pick up the environmentally friendly models in their nearby Staples stores, or have them shipped to their address.  Staples will produce the models with the Mcor IRIS, a 3D printer with the highest colour capability in the industry and lowest operating cost of any commercial-class 3D printer.   The company's co-founder and chief executive Dr Conor MacCormack says that MCor Technologies turns ideas into physical realities. 3D printing has so many uses, for example; creating customised parts, prototypes, art objects, architectural models, medical models, 3D maps, models of your children, your pets, your favourite film stars, the list is endless but if you’re a little more juvenile like me just think of the images you can have made in to 3D models…now where’s my camera?
