Fuji to Launch 3D Printing in April

Some weeks back, HP announced their plans to develop and release 3D printers. Apparently, it seems like every printer manufacturer is thinking of the same thing. The latest to announce that they are also launching 3D printing is Fuji. Actually, this is not a surprise since Fujifilm has just released the first 3D point-and-shoot camera last fall so it is expected that the company will also develop a 3D printer that will complete this.

According to a press release, Fuji’s 3D printer system will be launched this April in the U.K. The aim is to provide a “portable system” for photographers and event organizing enthusiasts. The Fuji 3D printer has a dimension of 17.7 x 16.9 x 35.4 inches. It is can produce high-quality and high-resolution prints. According to Fuji, the print rate is equally satisfying as it guarantees that your prints will be out and ready in a few minutes (no exact time or print rate has been stated though).

As for the sizes of prints, the Fuji 3D printer is for photo printing. There are four possible standard sizes of prints, ranging from 4 x 6 inches to 6 x 9 inches.

The company hasn’t released an official photo or a description of their 3D printer yet.
