Fujifilm plans to thrill with 3D printing at The Digital Show

The company will showcase its 3D printing technology to the masses at Melbourne's The Digital Show

Fujifilm will put on demonstrations that showcase the company's ability to create 3D items made out of thermo-plastic. The company hopes to make the technology available to retailers and says that the technology can be used to create toys, jewellery and interior design products. It creates objects by referencing a digital file and depositing various type of plastics, rather than ink, layer by layer until they are formed.

Michael Mostyn, Fujifilm's key account manager for its commercial division, said in a press release that Fujifilm is also "looking to make 3D Printers available for consumer purchase from retailers in the near future, enabling the family and do-it-yourself enthusiasts to produce low cost, high quality finished parts for their projects at home". He went on to say that "consumer printers would not have the capacity to produce all of the customised 3D products that would be available in-store through kiosks or online”.

The technology will be on display at The Digital Show, which starts at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Friday 25 May. If you plan to attend the show, you can see the technology at Fujifilm's stand (53).

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
