HP is entering the 3D printing market
Hewlett-Packard (HP) wants to get into the 3D printing game, and is preparing an announcement for June.
, HP has a "big technology announcement" scheduled for June 2014, where it will discuss plans to enter the commercial 3D printing market.
HP has been a player in the traditional printer market for quite some time, and was expected to eventually make a move into 3D printers. But along the way, HP had to solve some issues associated with the technology, such as the quality of substrates used in the process (this affects the durability of the end product).
There's also a lot of questioning as to whether 3D printing will score big in the consumer market just yet.
"We actually think we've solved these problems," said HP CEO Meg Whitman. "The bigger market is going to be in the enterprise space. We're on the case."
With 3D printing, various materials can be used to create a three-dimensional object for rapid prototyping and other needs. The market is currently dominated by the likes of MakerBot, and while
the cost of 3D printers is coming down
, it still hasn't made a huge splash in the consumer market.
But HP has said that 3D printing "has a magical aura" where people will want the ability to make their own objects.

Qualitative, grossly exagerated, and in complete disregard of printer model, age, and maintenance procedures.
