Fuji 3D printer

Fujifilm is introducing a new 3D printer, at least in the UK.
"Excellent ‘photographic’ results are produced using dye-sublimation technology to print directly on to the base of a lenticular sheet."
(I'm not sure why Fuji puts "photographic" in quotes, one must assume printed photos look like photos, even in 3D!)
There's no pricing yet, but I get the feeling this is aimed at shops rather than individuals.
(Here's a picture of their 3D camera, also pretty new.)

These days, 3D printing tends to refer to technologies that actually output three-dimensional objects. I'm pretty sure that, despite the emphasis put on the word 'photographic', some people simply won't get what this is about, especially if mentioned without the complementary 3D camera to put things in context. Raise your hands, those of you who knew before encountering this what lenticular printing is all about? ;-)

Fair point. I had to look it up. It those vertical plastic lines which break up the picture for two eyes innit?

I'm surprised it's taken so long for digital camera makers to introduce a 3D model. And again, innovation comes from outside the Big 5.

At present, in the world we have seen various types of 3D printing strategies; the fundamental procedure is comparatively consistent from one to consequent. In additive manufacturing, three-dimensional objects are created from a material in either liquid or particle type. I see that you describe very clearly about 3D printing and 3D printing materials.
