Hewlett-Packard Company (HPQ) to make 3D printer announcement in June
Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) CEO Meg Whitman said on Wednesday that the computer giant has solved the two largest problems with 3D printers. One of the biggest problems with 3D printers today is that they are slow. “It’s like watching ice melt,” said Whitman.
Another problem with 3D printers are quality. The surface of the “substrate is not perfect,” added Whitman.
Even though HP is making an announcement in June, it does not necessarily mean that new products will be released then. It could simply be a way to show the direction that the company is taking.
“We believe we have solved both these problems and we’ll be making a big technology announcement in June around how we are going to approach this,” confirmed Whitman. Whitman indicated that HP will target the business market first and then pursue the consumer market.
