A new store has been launched by Amazon for 3D printed goods which consists of all the items which can get easily customized to change their material, color, size together with the design of the goods if need be. The store amazingly covers a wide array of goods such as jewelry, games, kitchen supplies, home décor products, toys, electronic goods and the partners such as 3DLT, Sculpteo and Mixee, are supplying all these products.
The company flaunts as this being a very new and novel way to offer to more focused inventory, which can help to meet the specific needs of their customers. Petra Schindler-Carter, the Marketplace Sales director of Amazon in a press conference stated that with the introduction of their 3D Customized goods store, there will be a colossal shit in the online retail section and the manufacturing company will get more focused and quick in provide improved customer experiences and expectations.
Together with the launch of this new store, Amazon is also establishing a personalization device to customize few 3D print designs. This paves way for a widget which enables you to select from a number of basic design patterns, pick out the color, helps to finish the metal material or plastic together with a preview area wherein you can know how would the 360-degree 3D product would appear as. If you want, you could come up with suggestions and tweak in some designs with patterns and designs along with its dimension and thickness.
The price factor varies on different products, but the most cost effective ones fall into the $30 range slot, and they tend to move upwards all depending on the design pattern and size.
With the introduction of this store, there is definitely strong potential turning in the area of sale of online goods. This literally signifies the fact that the greatest online retailer is launching a direct selling and production mode in the English speaking world which brings in great probability of how in future products will get planned and conceived.
Small runs tend to be much more cost effectively done with the help of 3D printing, hence even though if we go theoretically as the sky being the limit being the range of items customers might prefer, yet if the 3D printing technology kept evolving, things will turn out to be much better. Well, one point worth keeping a note of is that Amazon so far is only selling across to its customers, a list of 3D printed items but has not provided the opportunities to its customers to offer or upload their personal designs and having them for instance, getting printed such as Shape ways.
Amazon wants to have a bit of control over the quality part and they will not have to mind or concern themselves with educating consumers about the way this 3D printing design technique or the way it works. Nonetheless, this does not actually signify that in future refinements would not open door to prospects such as these.
