NFC Technology Meets 3D Printing


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

Wow, what a great idea! However I think the bigger story may be the $0.50/cm3 price on their printing. At that price I can see some people ordering prints through them even if they don't plan on using the NFC tag at that price.

Concerning the price, this is a good point. We all know how sensitive customers are about the pricing of 3D printing. Note that the material used is ABS, the process is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and the precision is 0.3mm (85dpi). Shapeways is not offering this choice (I think they tried it, with a special glossy finish, ages ago). Perhaps they should try again... :-)
