Amazon Joins 3D Printing Service Industry

Posted Date 01/08/18
Not that it should come as a surprise, but Amazon has staked a claim on the 3D printing services market with a patent for a retailing system allowing it to process orders for custom 3D printed items. The main difference between this service and the current market players such as Shapeways is that Amazon’s system targets the ordinary, non-professional 3D printing enthusiast.
The system, according to Amazon, could change the face of the retail industry, as customers would be able to order an item, have it 3D printed from a design in an online library and shipped to them. The item could be printed on a printed that is the property of Amazon, a third-party printer or even on the way to the customer, in a truck.
