Staples to Launch 3D Printing Online Platform Powered by Sculpteo

Staples is about to launch a new online 3D printing platform which will let small businesses and consumers upload their own 3D designs or select from a curated assortment of models. The platform will be powered by the online 3D printing service Sculpteo.

User will be able to submit their own 3D files and customise designs by selecting from a wide array of materials and colours as well as adding text, figures, and images to any printable project. The platform also features a responsive, interactive 3D viewer so creations can be previewed before being 3D printed.

Staples has offered 3D printing as a service in its retail locations and through its Copy & Print sales teams, but the new service offering makes 3D printing even easier for businesses.

This is a great addition for our business customers that are looking for an easy way to prototype with quick turnaround time, and at an affordable price,said Behzad Soltani, vice president of services, e-commerce for Staples, Inc. The platform allows beginners get a taste and try 3D printing by selecting one of our existing models and making it their own through our customization options.

Clment Moreau,CEO& Co-Founder of Sculpteo: We are thrilled to support Staples through our 3D Printing Cloud Engine. This is an exciting time for 3D Printing in Retail. Staples will become an entry point for both businesses and the general public to benefit of 3D printing, and we are proud that Sculpteos technology will help to make that possible.

The site is scheduled to go live onStaples.comthe week of September 14.

Staples previously announced in May of 2013 that it would be the first major U.S. retailer to carry 3D printers. The company has since rolled out 3D printing hardware and accessories in a limited number of stores, and expanded its overall product selection to include printers by MakerBot. The company also launched in-store 3D printing services in pilot stores in New York City and Los Angles, as well as in a limited number of stores supported by Stratasys.

Staples is launching an in-store 3D printing service

Although the companys is mainly focusing on the consumer side of 3D printing (like action figures or personalized figurines), Staples aims to attract the attention of small businesses also.

Walk-in customers will have access to seven kinds of printers and six types of materials, including the Cube and Cube X models Staples already sells. Larger jobs will be sent to 3D Systems. If you dont have experience with modeling 3D-printable files, you will be helped: graphic design consultants will help customers model their vision. Theres no pricing announced for any of the services yet.

Staples to introduce 3D printing in their stores

As 3D printing gains traction in the public space there will be big players looking to capitalize on streamlining makerspaces by increasing their accessibility and overall appeal to the masses. Weve made a few comments here about Kinkos taking that plunge, but our predictions were a little off their mark, at least for now. The office-supplies giant Staples plans to make that first leap of introducing 3D printing into their stores, but dont hold your breath America, because theyre running the Easy 3D pilot program in Belgium and The Netherlands starting in 2013.

Many Staples customers are architects, designers, and engineers that need paper for documents, and whatever else Staples sells. It will further enable those customers with Staples offering them affordable rapid-prototyping and proof-of-concept services. Logistically the architect saves time and money by getting office supplies and models in the same building, or by having them shipped, which is offered too. Staples execution is a little odd as the printer that will be deployed is the Mcor IRIS, which prints solid objects in paper, A4 and letter-sized to be precise. Since Staples already has access to cheap paper they can probably make this work, but while it is 3D printing, its not additive manufacturing like most 3D printing is; its a subtractive process, starting with a stack of paper and then removing whats not part of the model. Since no toxic resins or dyes are used though, the waste is recyclable. As paper absorbs ink well the objects can also be in color, and not just single solid colors either; no, these objects are near photorealistic, something only a few of the most expensive printers can achieve. Something that this printer is not is expensive. One of the primary reasons for using the IRIS is its substantially lower cost of ownership compared to other printers.

President of the Staples European Printing Systems Division, Wouter Van Dijk, recently said in a press release, Given our market leadership in commercial print, why would we ever stop at two dimensions? Thats a good question. Another is, why didnt you say that last year? I feel this Easy 3D pilot sets the stage for the competition to launch similar services in the US without need of testing internationally, but thats just what Id do. Maybe a competitor will come with some true additive manufacturing to distinguish itself from Staples. Either way, this should light a fire under the commercial print industrys collective ass to get us more retail-oriented 3D printing.

Staples Launches In-Store 3D Printing Experience

in a pilot of 3D printing services in two Staples stores in New York City and Los Angeles.

Each Staples store features an immersive 3D printing experience center that lets consumers and small businesses create personalized products and use 3D printing hardware. Customers can also bring in their own 3D print-ready files to have them printed.

3D printing offers enormous potential for small businesses, and by using Staples, they can print with the technology without having to invest in it, said Damien Leigh, Senior Vice President of Business Services for Staples, Inc. The test with 3D Systems will help us learn about our customers needs for a local 3D printing service, and how Staples can help them make more happen for their business through 3D printing.

Staples established reputation as a leader in home office and small business solutions makes them an ideal partner for testing out live, consumer-facing 3D print services, said Rajeev Kulkarni, 3DS Vice President and General Manager, Consumer Products Division. We have been thrilled with the retail experience and response from our audience, and the difference it makes being able to see, touch and experience 3D printing.

With the new experience centers, both small businesses and consumers are able to learn more about 3D printing through demonstration areas where they can use design software and see 3D Systems printers in action. Each store will have a 3DMe(R) Photobooth from 3D Systems to capture customers facial images for the purpose of personalizing 3D products like figurines, and customers can also print personalized smart phone cases.

Each store has an expert from 3D Systems on-site, along with trained Copy & Print associates from Staples to help guide customers on their 3D printing journey. The items will be printed on site or through 3D Systems and shipped directly to their offices or home.

Staples previously announced in May of 2013 that it would be the first major U.S. retailer to carry 3D printers, with the launch of the Cube(R) from 3D Systems on . The company has since rolled out 3D printing hardware and accessories in a limited number of stores, and expanded its overall product selection.

Staples Wants to Be the 3D Printing Solution for Small Businesses

At 3D Print Week in New York, I was invited to interviewBehzad Soltani, Vice President of Global E-Commerce and Business Development at Staples, Inc. Having written about the company multiple times, and as a consumer, I didnt exactly anticipate any surprises coming from the office supplier, but, when I got to the Staples booth to speak with Behzad, I learned thatStaplesis actually up to a lot more in the 3D printing space than I previously thought.

Speaking with Behzad, along with Director of Corporate Communications Mark Cautela and Business Development Manager Sam Garzon, we began with some of the topics I was already aware of.  On the retail front, Staples sells 3D printers and 3D printing supplies in-store and online.  You can head over to their website andorder a wide range of machines: the complete MakerBot line, various generations of 3D Systems Cube 3D printers, the Afinia H480, the BEETHEFIRST, the Leapfrog Creatr and Creatr XL, the Flashforge Creator, and the Matter & Form 3D scanner.  Some of these are also available in physical Staples stores, with a number of them carrying MakerBot machines.

As we began discussing some of the companys other initiatives outside of the US, I learned that Staples, as a global company, doesnt enter various markets with a single-pronged approach.  Behzad explained,Our products and services are very localized. Certain brands have certain strengths. For instance, Staples Europe began with Mcor. The US is much more diverse, so Staples works with Stratasys and 3D Systems. We do this across the board. On the service side, theres a wide variety of technologies out there.  This goes for standard printing, as well, with Xerox, Canon, HP, and all of these companies.  We want to bring all of these services to our customers.

It was at this point that the overall Staples business model for 3D printing started to coalesce.  Just as Staples offers multiple 2D printer brands, the office supplier isnt about selling a single 3D printer or 3D printing service.  In fact, they arent even solely an office supplier.  Staples is a business-to-business solutions provider.  So, in addition to office equipment, the company sells printing and design services, even business consultations. The owner of a small bakery might look to Staples to purchase some binders to organize wedding cake designs, order a few thousand flyers made, or speak to a consultant about re-designing their stores signage.  All of this, as someone who doesnt own his own business, had not even occurred to me; I just go there to buy ink cartridges!

As the company enters the realm of 3D printing, all of these offerings go with it.  Not only does Staples sell 3D printers, but they offer 3D printing services and can help customers implement 3D printing in their own businesses.  That same bakery owner might turn to Staples to get their signage made and, when speaking to a Staples sales representative, get introduced to 3D printing as a means of producing full-color cake toppers using 3D Systems ProJet 660 system, their ChefJet Pro, or ceramic toppers made with their CeraFab 3D printers.  In the same way, businesses in need of industrial-grade plastics could leverage Stratasys Fortus FDM technologies.

The same works at the other end of Staples 3D printing spectrum, with a customer wandering into a Staples looking for paper and coming across the shops Innovation Center, where a 3D printer might be chugging away.  They could purchase the MakerBot on display or, speaking with a store representative, learn that the company also provides advanced 3D printing services and expertise.

It became clear to me that, for small businesses that already know the value of 3D printing, they might find a local 3D printing service provider to produce their goods, but, for those just becoming familiar with the technology, they might not know the benefits to begin with, let alone how to design with 3D printings benefits in mind.  In so doing, they approach a knowledgeable business that can help them navigate the otherwise confusing world of this new technology.

Soltani elaborates, They can come to us and we can give them the right technology.  And that is one of the true values that I think we bring. They come into this space where there is so much innovation and want to leverage the technology, but it is constantly changing. So, in trying to keep up, upgrading machines, materials, and so on and so forth, we can bring that to them.Furthermore, when a customer needs specific design and engineering services, that one might expect from an industrial design or service firm, Staples is able to provide that expertise through their partners, such as Stratasys Direct Manufacturing or 3D Systems Quickparts divisions.

Behzad then gave an example of just how it was able to help a cosmetics business launch its product when the Staples Sales division introduced them to 3D printing,The example that Im really excited about, in regards to the true value we bring in, is a project we did with a cosmetics company. We helped them with the entire end-to-end process.He continued,Theyre launching a new soap bottle and bar and we helped them design it the complexities of which, Im sure you know, with the media doing a very good job of making it look very simple, but it is a complex process we helped them with the design, we helped them choose the material, and we actually printed it for them. And it was a huge success for them.

It was fascinating to learn that the company had infused itself into all aspects of 3D printing, from retail to providing services, to offering design expertise.  Mark Cautela pointed out that the company even uses the technology in-house, when designing their own retail products.  He explains,The Staples Design + Innovation team is working on various projects and will launch 200+ skus during 2015. The projects range from fashion licensed to support our Style by Staples range, to new sensors that will be integrated into our Staples Connect home automation solution.And, to prototype these products, the team uses the NVPro 3D printer fromNVBOTS, which wevecovered on 3DPI numerous times.

Though weve reported on the use of the NVBOTS device in schools, the printer is also sold in an commercial package that allows businesses to lease the NVPro.  Mark further points how the printer is ideal for businesses such as theirs,It has the capability to run 24/7, is cloud connected, has automated part removal and a print queue, and offers video monitoring so you can confirm its running and check the status of parts being printed. This allows the team the freedom to work on multiple projects and collaborate with their China-based counterparts, as the traditional wait time for 3D printed products is not conducive to a regular work schedule.

This is only the beginning for the office supplier and service provider.  As Staples gets into the 3D printing space more, the company has plans to expand their online offering.  Just as you can walk into a Staples store, speak with a Print Pro and receivefull end-to-end services, including design and 3D printing, customers will be able to have a similar experience online.  This means that youll be able to upload a 3D file to the Staples site and have it printed, mirroring their 2D printing services.

Leaving the conversation, the aisles of Staples began to take on a whole new light to me.  This wasnt just a place where a customer might go to pick up office supplies, including a 3D printer.  Staples, as a familiar face for designing logos and printing brochures, was becoming an interface for mainstream businesses to understand and utilize a revolutionary technology that might fundamentally change the way they operate.

Staples starts 3D printing service online

officially opened its 3D printing service in the Netherlands on Monday (Sep.16). Users can upload their 3D designs, get them 3D printed at Staples using full color Iris 3D printers from MCOR Technologies. Besides uploading their own designs, users can also order 3D prints from an online 3D objects catalog. Moreover, 3D designers could also sell their designs via Staples web store.

Staples announced the launch of a new3D printing servicein November last year. Low-cost, coloured, photo-realistic 3D printed products will be offered from Staples stores. Staples claims that the Iris 3D printer provides the highest color quality by using office paper instead of plastic. Unlike the plastics-based printersMcors Iris printercreates 3D objects with layers of paper and a water-based adhesive. The most obvious advantage is that it can print out some impressively colorful 3D objects. And in addition it is 40 to 60 percent cheaper than the price per cubic cm for plastic parts, says Staples. The disadvantage is that they are less sturdy than plastic prints.

But Staples also says it hasnt built up a system to check the copyright of any 3D designs. So the uploader takes the responsibility for their uploaded design, if there is any copyright issues. It takes around 8 to 14 business days to finish an order and the 3D printed models will be delivered via a parcel service to the user.

The initial trials is in the Netherlands, but Staples says it will be rolled out quickly to other countries.

Mcor Technologies and Staples Division Launch 3D Printing Service

Full colour and low cost make 3D printing accessible to everyone

3D printen Gemakkelijk snel en handig Staples Nederland

FRANKFURT, GERMANY, 29 November, 2012 In a giant step toward the reality of 3D printing for all,Mcor Technologies Ltdhas struck a deal with Staples Printing Systems Division to launch a new 3D printing service called Staples Easy 3D, online via theStaples Office Centre.

Staples Easy 3D will offer consumers, product designers, architects, healthcare professionals, educators, students and others low-cost, brilliantly coloured, photo-realistic 3D printed products from Staples stores. Customers will simply upload electronic files to the Staples Office Centre and pick up the models in their nearby Staples stores, or have them shipped to their address. Staples will produce the models with theMcor IRIS, a 3D printer with the highest colour capability in the industry and lowest operating cost of any commercial-class 3D printer.

Mcor announced Staples Easy 3D today atEuromold 2012inHall 11.0, Stand B109.

Given our market leadership in commercial print, why would we ever stop at two dimensions? said President Wouter Van Dijk, president of the Staples Printing Systems Division in Europe. Customised parts, prototypes, art objects, architectural models, medical models and 3D maps are items customers need today, in a more affordable and more accessible manner. Mcor will help us to keep prices low, quality high and colour brilliant as we meet the demand.

Although 3D printing is evolving on a similar path to 2D printing, theres no sign that every home will have a 3D printer right away. Until that time, consumers will look to service bureaus, said Mcor Technologies co-founder and CEO Dr. Conor MacCormack. Staples is uniquely positioned to become the pre-eminent service bureau to the world, and we will help them deliver highest quality and value. Staples Easy 3D is a breakthrough service in innovation and access for consumers and businesses alike.
