Staples to launch 3D printing service in early 2013 beginning in the Netherlands and Belgium

Staples is launching a new service called Staples Easy 3D, which will allow customers to upload files to the Staples Office Center, have objects printed in 3D, and pick them up at a nearby store or have them shipped. While similar services like Shapeways have existed for quite some time, they're relatively obscure to the everyday consumer — this new deal between 3D printer manufacturer Mcor Technologies new and Staples may prove a huge step in making 3D printing affordable and accessible to the masses. Staples Easy 3D is set to launch in the Netherlands and Belgium in early 2013, and will be "rolled out quickly to other countries" according to Staples Printing Systems' director of business development Oscar Pakasi.
