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).

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
