DUNLEER, Ireland, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the only line of desktop paper-based 3D printers in the world announced today that Staples' new 3D printing service, "Staples myeasy3d," is now available online via the Staples Office Centre (http://staples.myeasy3d.com/).
Staples myeasy3D offers consumers, product designers, architects, healthcare professionals, educators, students and others low-cost, durable, brilliantly colored, photorealistic 3D printed products from Staples stores. Customers just upload electronic files to the Staples Office Centre (http://staples.myeasy3d.com/) and pick up the models in their nearby Staples stores, or have them shipped to their address. Staples produces the models with the Mcor IRIS, a 3D printer with the highest color capability in the industry and lowest operating cost of any commercial-class 3D printer.
Mcor announced the launch of Staples myeasy3D today at the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, booth #134.
"Given our market leadership in commercial print, why would we ever stop at two dimensions?" said President Wouter Van Dijk, president of the Staples Printing Systems Division in Europe. "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."
"Although 3D printing is evolving on a similar path to 2D printing, there are no safe, full-color, low-cost, high-quality 3D printers available on the market today that are suitable for true consumer in-home use. Until that time, consumers will look to service bureaus," said Mcor Technologies co-founder and CEO Dr. Conor MacCormack. "Staples is uniquely positioned to become the top service bureau to the world, and we will help them deliver highest quality and value. Staples myeasy3D is a breakthrough service in innovation and access for consumers and businesses alike."
"The online platform for Staples myeasy3D is now available in the Netherlands and will be further enhanced with customization apps and designer support in the very near future," said Oscar Pakasi, director, business development of Staples Printing Systems, who is responsible for developing the concept and the design of the Staples myeasy3D print service platform.
Mcor IRIS full-color 3D printers also power Staples' First 3D Printing 'Experience Centre' in the Staples Office Centre in Almere, The Netherlands. The Staples Experience Centre provides a hands-on 3D printing experience where consumers learn all about 3D printing. Visitors interact with Mcor 3D printers, examine full-color, paper 3D printed models, as well as attend 3D printing presentations and workshops.
