3D printing is one of the hottest topics in print today. In fact, IDC has identified 3D printing as one of the core innovation accelerators for the 3rd Platform. This recognition is a signal that this market, which has been around for 30 years, is ready to transition from a market hype status to a technology that brings innovation and disruption to the materializing of all sorts of physical things from digital blueprints.
Recently, Konica Minolta announced the availability of the professional line of 3D printers to us. The professional line of 3D printers consists of 3D Systems ProJet 1200, ProJet 4500, ProJet x60 and ProJet 3500 series. The professional line of 3D printers provides the accuracy, build volume and speed that architects, engineering firms, education, and consumer product companies demand.
