Polaroid Debuts New Range of Consumer 3D Printers at CES 2018

Pin It

At a friend’s birthday party this weekend, I was introduced to the Pic-300 Instant Analog Camera by Polaroid for the first time. I felt a little behind the times, as I didn’t even know such a thing existed anymore, and may have started in on a “Back in my day…” story right there in the kitchen; I am a child of the ’80s, after all, and was around during the heyday of the original Polaroid camera and its self-developing film.

While managing to honor the past, Polaroid still looks to the future, and the company has the best comeback story ever – after declaring bankruptcy in the late 2000s, it reformed as a new corporation with the same popular name, and entered the 3D printing world at CES 2016 with the launch of its first 3D printer. Polaroid debuted several new 3D printers and 3D printing pens at CES 2017, and is again using the year’s biggest US tech show as a platform to showcase another new range of 3D printers.

Polaroid’s CES 2018 Booth

CES 2018 is currently taking place in Las Vegas and Polaroid is at the trade show. In addition to showcasing multiple other products, the company also announced the launch of four new consumer 3D printers for the US and Canadian markets at the event.

“At Polaroidwe have an 80-year history of not only making the latest technology accessible to the everyday consumer, but also providing users with products that allow them to express their creativity. Our newest 3D printer models are the perfect example of this,” said Scott W. Hardy, the President and CEO of Polaroid. “We’re proud to offer the latest in 3D printing technology to give users a new way to express themselves at a price point that puts the technology within reach for use in any home, school or business.”

The new easy-to-use 3D printer models offer a variety of consumer 3D printing options. They are all compact, with sleek designs, and bear the unmistakable Polaroid Classic Border Logo. These four new models make 3D printing technology accessible to anyone who wants to easily 3D print artwork, models, and parts at home, in the classroom, or at the office.

Polaroid Nano Duo

The first is the Polaroid Nano Duo 3D printer, which allows users to print with two colors simultaneously, thanks to its dual heads. The Nano Duo, which measures at 17.7″ x 14.1″ x 22″, offers an 11.8″ x 8.8″ x 12.6″ print area, so users can easily 3D print large items, and it’s compatible with multiple 1.75 mm filament types, including ABS, PLA, metal, TPU, and wood.

Users can easily control the Nano Duo through the on-board LCD panel, or use WiFi and a dedicated smartphone app to control it remotely; the app also works with the 3D printer’s built-in camera, so users can monitor print progress and access cloud storage to save their designs. The Nano Duo 3D printer is available in charcoal grey, for an MSRP of $1849.

Polaroid Nano Mini

The plug and play Polaroid Nano Mini 3D printer offers easy one-button push control, and is a good choice for someone new to 3D printing. Measuring at just 7.4”x 7.4” x 7.8”, the lightweight 3D printer is portable and can be easily stored, and the ultra-quiet motor means it would be at home in the classroom.

The Polaroid Nano Mini 3D printer is compatible with 1.75 mm PLA filament, and has a 3.1”x 3.1” x 3.5” print bed for smaller 3D printing projects. It comes in white, at an affordable MSRP of just $349.

Don’t be put off by the small 10.2”x 9.8” x 10.2” footprint of the Polaroid Nano Glide 3D printer – thanks to a 4.7”x 4.7” x 4.7” sliding print bed, it’s still capable of producing large 3D printed projects.

Available in white at the MSRP of $479, the Nano Glide is designed for home and classroom use and includes child safety doors. When you’re working on a larger project, the Nano Glide 3D printer’s filament smart sensor helpfully lets you know when to refill the 1.75 mm PLA filament so you don’t waste any time.

Polaroid Nano Glide

The last of Polaroid’s new 3D printers is the easy-to-use Nano+, which uses the latest FDM technology to offer more accurate, stable, and fast prints. Just like the Polaroid Nano Duo 3D printer, users can remotely control the 11”x 11” x 11” Nano+ with WiFi and a dedicated smartphone app, or use the on-board LCD tray. The Nano+ comes in black, offers a 4.7”x 4.7” x 4.7” print area and child safety doors, and the 3D printer’s filament smart sensor lets you know when to refill the 1.75 mm PLA filament. The Polaroid Nano+ 3D printer is available for an MSRP of $549, and is the company’s only new 3D printer available in March; the other three will not be available until April.

Authorized Polaroid licensee Coretech Printer Group Co. Ltd. will be offering Polaroid’s new range of 3D printers in the US and Canada. You can see these four new 3D printers, along with Polaroid’s new 3D printing pens and other products, at CES 2018 this week at the company’s booth #16615 in the Central Hall. Don’t forget, will also be at CES this week, bringing you all of the latest product and technology news right from the showroom floor.

3D Printing: The Past, Present and Future of Manufacturing and Consumer Products

3D printing technology has grown exponentially over the past 4 decades. The origins of 3D printing started in the early 1980s when the technology was exclusively for high end manufacturing processes. Today, 3D printing is both used for large scale consumer products and home use. Throughout the history of 3D printing, there have been many competing techniques that have been bought out by big 3D printing companies such as 3D-Systems Corporation. From Sterolithography (SLA) to Selective laser Sintering (SLS), 3D printing is becoming an emerging means for manufacturing. This is mainly because printing materials not only cause minimal damage to our environment, but it also prevents wasting material. As opposed to being a subtractive process, in which materials need to be cut to mold into a new shape thus wasting the remaining metal, 3D printing allows us to manufacture products in an additive process by simply adding necessary material to a product designed from a computer aided design (CAD) program.  Despite the implications for this technology, it still has setbacks such as low efficiency and maintenance. With the emergence of a new 3D printing technology called continuous liquid interface Production (CLIP), 3D printing can now become more efficient, easy to use, and almost universal to all liquid polymers. Making CLIP technology a more global means of 3D printing will allow the emergence of a new industrial revolution where products can be made both efficiently and leave little waste.

In its beginnings during the early 1980s, 3D printing was originally known as Rapid Prototyping technologies because of its use as a model creator for further product development within a manufacturing industry [1].  The first type of 3D printing process that emerged in the industry was sterolithography (SL). In SL, lasers precisely cure a shape around a photopolymer located on a moveable platform. This platform, like other 3D printing processes, can move in the X, Y, or Z axis. The laser however only moves in the X and Y axis relative to the platform surface, forming a hardened resin shape. Layer by layer, the laser will cure the material by dropping the platform along its Z axis until the object is completed and then the desired product is raised out of the platform.  This 3D process was invented by Charles Hull who became the co-founder of 3D Systems Corporation. Once SL was realized to be a viable and precise means of manufacturing, a variety of 3D printing processes emerged as a result of competition within this market. From Digital Light Processing to Electron Beam Melting, innovators across the globe have been developing various means to make 3D printing the universal means of manufacturing.

Not only have 3D printing processes shown its growth in the manufacturing industry, but its growth is also very prevalent in the consumer market. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is the most common 3D printing technique because in addition to being used in large factories and research laboratories, FDM is used in homes for leisure. FDM works by first processing a CAD file on any regular computer connected to an FDM printer.  The printer will take the CAD information and extrude a filament on a platform in a layer by layer process to ultimately create the individuals wanted design. This 3D printing technique was created by Scott Crump, who has now become the chairman of Stratasys Ltd [2].

As a result of all of the competition within the young industry, 3D printing technology is constantly innovating new methods of creating products. Notably, a startup company from Redwood City, California saw the growth prevalent in this field and is in the process of creating what could be a breakthrough in 3D printing. Carbon 3D founder and CEO Joseph DeSimone has created a technique in 3D printing where as opposed to using solid resins or filaments, the technology uses a liquid polymer as its base for printing. This printing technique is called Continuous Liquid Interface Printing or CLIP. In CLIP, UV light and oxygen are used hand in hand to promote and inhibit photopolymerization of a particular liquid polymer material. The liquid material lies on a bed and like SL; the technology uses the light to cure the material. However, what makes CLIP stand out from all other 3D printing techniques is that it does not process the material in a layer by layer process rather; it uses light to harden the entire 3D shape of the material through the liquid polymer as well as inhibit any hardening on other areas of the polymer through the addition of oxygen. The combination of oxygen and light will allow the shape to be most precisely created in the polymer which once done, will be slowly lifted up by a platform, thus creating product [3]. By avoiding the layer by layer technique, CLIP printing has the potential of becoming up to 100 times faster as a manufacturing process than typical 3D printing techniques [4].

Upscaling CLIP technology for factory and consumer use will not only allow for quicker and more accurate prints, but it may finally make conventional manufacturing processes obsolete. As opposed to creating products cutting and wasting any residue from a solid block of material, 3D printing, particularly CLIP technology, will allow for both an efficient means to develop product without leaving any important materials to waste or are forced to recycle said material, a process that in it of its self can be expensive. The creation of CLIP as a 3D printing technique is definitely a huge jump in the industry as it stands out in efficiency and comprehensive use. With the rate that 3D printing innovation is moving, who knows where the technology will go next?

Consumer sector trends to consider in the next 15 years

18 January 2016

The past 15 years have seen a considerable shakeup of the consumer industry as old players gave way to new ways of engaging consumers and doing business. The next 15 years is expected to see a continuation of the trend as new technologies and ways of connecting challenge incumbent businesses. In a bid to explore the trends and their impact on the consumer industry, McKinsey & Company drew up a list of the most important trends and analysed their impact vs. the predictability of their effect.

15 years is a long time as technological innovation speeds turnover. In 2000 Kmart was the third-largest US retailer, with $36 billion in sales; Facebook didn’t yet exist; Anheuser-Busch was the world’s largest brewer; and Alibaba had only just formed. Today, Kmart has been halved in size while the new giant within the sector, Amazon, grew its turnover from$2.8 billion to $89 billion; Facebook is a multi-billion dollar company with 1.5 billion users; Anheuser-Busch has been bought out by its competition; and Alibaba filed the largest IPO ever, valued at $25 billion.

The next 15 years are also expected to see changes of the guard as new technologies and innovation, as well as demographic shifts, rebalance the playing field as well as shake up the players. In a recent article from McKinsey & Company, titled ‘The consumer sector in 2030: Trends and questions to consider’, the consulting firm explores the demographic, political, behavioural, structural and technological changes on the horizon as well as the expected resultant trends for those factors.

5 key trends for the world

Global trends
According to the firm’s research, a number of wide scale trends are set to reshape the globe in the coming 15 years. Demographic wise, the middle class will increase significantly, almost tripling by 2030 (as emerging-market growth more than offsets stagnation in developed markets). The level of women participation is projected to increase, while 65 million more people per year will be living in cities. The rich, leveraging their wealth, will become still ever richer.

Geopolitical dynamics too are expected to change, with economic power shifts as the Asian economies catch up to that of the developed world, while globalisation will remain in power. Rising cost of labour and commodities are projected, as well as climate change effects. For consumers, a range of behavioural changes are expected, including shifts in discretionary spending, demand in personalisation, as well as a further expanded sharing economy. Technology is also expected to play a significant role in the coming decade, with mobile penetration hitting 75% by 2030, while trends in 3D printing, robotics, automated cars, and big data are set to continue.

Trends affecting consumer companies

Trends impacting consumer industry
Identifying the importance of these trends will be essential to making the decisions that will shape whether a business flourishes or perishes in the mid-term. McKinsey’s research, based on a number of factors, explores how the trends will likely come to affect consumer companies. The firm notes that individual companies within different markets will likely be affected differently and contextualisation remains key.

High impact hard to predict technological developments include 3D printing, advanced robotics and virtual reality, as well as the internet of things. Technologies such as analytics for marketing, mobile proliferation and social media consumption are more likely events. Consumer demographic changes that are high impact and relatively easy to predict include the middle-class boom, an aging population, urbanisation, the rich getting richer and women in the work place. Low impact easy to predict changes include millennials taking over and the shrinking household size.

Behavioural changes likely to have high impact and are easily predicted is the continued focus on convenience. Lower predictability, but high impact changes, include rising commodity and labour costs, the sharing economy, demand for personalisation and shifts in discretionary spending. Climate change, economic interconnectedness and economic power shifts are unlikely to majorly affect the consumer industry and also remain hard to predict.
