Internet auction giant eBay has raised the 3D printing stakes with the beta release of eBay Exact - an app that allows you to customize 3D-printed products including iPhone cases, jewellery and figurines.
Simply select one of the available trinkets, choose a design, and then you can add your own personal touch to create an one-of-a-kind item. The app's landing page states: "With our first foray into 3D printing technology, we have partnered with Sculpteo, MakerBot, and Hot Pop Factory who are leaders in 3D printing technology."
A huge name like eBay joining the 3D printing bandwagon will have many sitting up and taking note - is this app release the defining moment where 3D printing has turned from expensive novelty to mainstream product? With the current line of products on eBay Exact, probably not - but the possibilities are endless.
