PostNord actively explores the possibilities of new disruptive technology and one identified area is to make the 3D market more accessible for both consumers and businesses. A first step is to enable consumers to, in an easy way, get their personalized 3D models printed directly from the Sony Mobile app 3D Creator, and distributed by PostNord.
"I am very pleased to be working with Sony Mobile. The 3D creator is groundbreaking when it comes to mobile creativity and for us this is an important step for incorporating new technology into our business", says Ylva Ekborn, CEO PostNord Strålfors Group.
This enables PostNord to leverage on the expertise of one of the most well-known global technology enterprises, while Sony Mobile can leverage on PostNords knowledge in the logistics and communications market as well as their diverse customer base.
"We are very excited about working with PostNord, that with its broad service portfolio, can handle the complete supply chain, from digital 3D file in the phone, to 3D-printing and distribution to consumers", says Lars Novak from Sony Mobile
3D Creator is Sony's unique, innovative in-house developed app for fast and easy scanning of 3D objects, offering a new world of creative possibilities. The only 3D scanning application using a single camera lens available on a smartphone, you can capture high quality 3D scans of objects in just one minute using the four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan and freeform scan.
PostNord Strålfors will print the 3D scans with Stratasys J750, the world's only full color, multimaterial 3D printer on the market. In addition PostNord has entered into partnership with 3YOURMIND, a leading supplier of production environments within the 3D industry to enable an automated and fully customized seamless production process.
"This is a first step and we look forward to expanding our cooperation. For us Sony Mobile, is an innovative partner that we can explore new business opportunities with to make the 3D technology more open and accessible to both businesses and consumers", Ylva Ekborn concludes.
