Splat 3D Pod’s Doug Webb said the concept welcomed people to the world of 3D, and that in fact, POD was an acronym for (3D) ‘Print On Demand.’
“There’s not just 3D printing, but also 3D modelling, video gamer facilities and virtual reality (VR) for architectural clients, and experiences for everyone,” Mr Webb said.
“There are three zones at the POD with the ‘Gamer Zone’ aimed specifically at gamers and entertainment, streamed and inhouse, console and VR.
“The ‘Creatives Zone’ is for architects, designers and other creatives, using our modelling and visualization tools, together with VR for design iteration and client review.
“The ‘Maker Zone’ is where 3D printing happens for mini desktop gamers, or prototyping for engineers, or replacement of that broken knob you can’t buy anymore.
“Basically, I see additive manufacturing and virtual construction of products, combined with other technologies generally, as fundamental to creating as frugal a future as possible – as is necessary for the survival of the planet.
“I want to get that happening in a way that others can enjoy doing it as much as I do. That way, we all benefit.”
