Staples Begins Offering 3D Printing Service In Stores - 3DPrint.com

Staples Begins Offering 3D Printing Service In Stores - 3DPrint.com | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it

We all knew it was bound to happen. Staples for the last year has been selling 3D printers within many of their stores here in the United States, but today they have begun offering 3D printing services within two of there U.S. locations; one in New York City, and the other in Los Angeles. This is not a first for Staples, who last year introduced 3D printing services at stores located in Europe.

Anyone can stroll into these two locations and print out an almost infinite number of items, of course for a fee. Staples hasn’t announced the exact pricing model they will be using, but the the pricing will range from a few bucks to potentially thousands of dollars for larger, more complicated items. Most of the items will be printed in the stores, however some of the bigger items will be done in partnership with 3D Systems, who will ship the printed products once complete. The decision to go with just two store locations, in two very high trafficked areas is part of a pilot program, that if it takes off, could expand to numerous other stores around the nation.

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

Excellent guidelines to go by. The internet is such a reflection of what goes on in the human mind, from bright and genius ideas and behavior, to dark and stupid. I'd rather be on the bright side.

This is a graphic example for the article, but the site is a cybersafety site in the UK and has lots of information for parents about online safety for their children. It also tests their knowledge.

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.
