HP will enter 3D printing market by mid-2014

HP plans to make its debut in the 3D printer space next year, though executives have yet to say exactly what kind of product they are planning. CEO Meg Whitman made the announcement at the Canalys Channels Platform in Bangkok, where she said the company will focus on speed and cost.

“We are excited about 3D printing,” Whitman said, according to The Register. Costs have also been dropping, but we don’t yet know if any of the planned low-cost printers balance quality with price. The Peachy, for example, costs just $97 on Kickstarter and will ship in July 2014. High-end consumer printers known for their relative reliability tend to sell for at least $2,000.”

If HP can deliver on these two qualities with a 3D printer, it could be a winner.
