AN IRISH COMPANY based in Co Louth has signed a deal with the printing and office supplies company Staples to provide 3D printing services.
The company confirmed to TheJournal.ie that it had struck the deal, and that representatives are currently in Germany for trade show Euromold, where the announcement was made today.
Mcor Technologies was formed by brothers Dr Conor MacCormack and Fintan MacCormack in 2005.
Wired reports that Staples will offer a service called ‘Staples Easy 3D’, where customers can upload their designs to Staples’ website and then pick up the objects at their local Staples, or have them delivered.
According to Wired, Staples will introduce the service in the Netherlands and Belgium first, before moving on to other countries.
Here is a video from Mcor showing how their 3D printer, which prints and glues the objects using paper, works:
