Apple Sells Ultimaker 3D Printers in Europe

by • April 11, 2016 • No Comments

  • Since the 3D printing boom which began in 2012, many have wondered only when, if at any time, Apple may get into the 3D printing space. For the many part, it was agreed which the innovation only wasn’t really eager for the tech giant, who normally likes their products so user friendly and polished which actually my parents can use them. But, Apple filed a few patents here and there to suggest which perhaps they were exploring 3D printing behind closed doors. Now which the Apple of Silicon Valley’s eye is prepping for the release of its own AR device, the 3D sensing iPhone 7 Plus, and is publicly toying with the thought of VR, it is with renewed interest which we ask, can Apple at any time get into 3D printing? It turns out which they aleager have, at very least in Europe.

    3D Printing Center reports which Ultimaker 2+ 3D printing devices are on the market for purchase online of Apple keeps in “Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Spain, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy and in Hungary.” That’s a total of 12 keeps for those who are counting. Interestingly, a notoriously closed source company has chosen one of the many talked about open source 3D printing devices on the market to sell in their online keep. Given the talked about ity of the Ultimaker brand in Europe and the clean aesthetic, it appears like an obvious choice, if Apple is going to select to sell 3D printing devices.

    Of course, selling 3D printing devices is one thing and an Apple-made 3D printing device is a completely various one. Apple has aleager sold the Mattel-branded VR headset online, hinting at an embrace of VR, but they have yet to sell their own device. My guess is which, when Apple does unveil the iPhone 7 Plus this September, they can require partners for apps related to 3D printing. The iPhone 7 Plus can allow users to scan objects for 3D printing on a separately purchased Ultimaker 2+.
