The OEM has made its first foray into the world of 3D printing with the release of its first 3D printer, the Portrait.
This transition came about as Kodak made an agreement with Smart International to expand the OEM’s brand licensing campaign into the “dynamic 3D printing space.”
“We are excited to take the Kodak brand into 3D printing and pioneer a best in class series of desktop printers and materials designed specifically for creative professionals,” said Roberto Gawianski, CEO, Smart International.
“Professional 3D printing is a fast-evolving growth category Kodak has had its eye on for a while. We are happy to add a strong and innovative licensee like Smart International to our portfolio of brand licensees,” said Joel Satin, VP Director of Brand Licensing.
Kodak’s Portrait 3D Printer includes “thoughtful features” to help “improve productivity and reliability” and its attractive designs “will fit in the most exacting architectural studio, creative workspace or classroom.” In addition, the device’s 3D Printing Filament “has industry-leading-low moisture content, high melt flow index and precise diameter and roundness for superior prints.”
Kodak’s 3D Printing Filaments will go on sale in December 2017 and the Kodak Portrait 3D Printer will be available early next year.
