Following its US counterpart Staples, Australian office supply chain Officeworks will start offering a 3D printing service to its clients beginning mid-June.
Starting with its store on Russell Street in Melbourne, Officeworks will enable customers to directly order 3D prints, choosing from a range of colours, materials and sizes. For the 3D printing service, the office supply chain has teamed up with the Australian provider Keech 3D, working with Stratasys PolyJet and FDM printers as well as Mcor’s paper 3D printing devices.
Additionally, their in store “3D Experience Center” will feature a full-body 3D scanner, so customers can get their own 3D printed mini-me.
Should their pilot turn out to be successful, the company will expand the 3D printing service to additional stores across the country.
