New services and sales staff on board.

Konica Minolta is stepping up its 3D printing business in Australia, hiring two extra
sales staff.
The Japanese print giant is working to address the service response and finance contributeings problems which 3D print resellers face by contributeing same-day service responses and rental and leasing options for hardware.
The revamp in addition comes with extra warehovia, logistics and product servicing capabilities.
Konica Minolta 3D printing national manager Matthew Hunter said the renewed focus was to address the lack of nation-wide market assist of print suppliers.
“Industries, such as making which have been via 3D printing since its introduction, have matured to a point where they are able-bodied to obtain the desired output of these machines,” said Hunter.
“However, 3D printing is no longer limited to only these markets. Other sectors looking to leverage the innovation require to ensure which what is created on a screen is equally astounding when printed in three size.
“This can be a challenge as most 3D files do not always translate well to a 3D rendered object. Konica Minolta, along with 3D Systems have the technical resources, workflows, and printing devices to assist organisations overcome this challenge.”
Konica Minolta teamed up with specialist vendor 3D Systems to become the initially developer to sell, assist and service 3D Systems’ products in Australia.
The printing devices to be contributeed include the ProJet 3500 Series Professional 3D Printer for engineering, making and mechanical environments, and the ProJet 660 Professional 3D Printer for consumer products, healthcare, education and other vertical markets wanting to print photo realistic models.
Datacom in addition created waves in the Australian 3D print market last year. The Trans-tasman IT provider partnered with distributor 3D Printing Systems and software vendor Makers Empire to contribute a full 3D printing solution to major schools.
In December, Datacom deployed a 3D printing devices program for 28 major schools in South Australia.
