A Patent Reveals That Apple Is Working On Its Own 3D printer

Apple is working on a colored 3D printer!

Apple apart from being famous for its products is also famous for filing patents for unique and interesting products.

Apple, not long ago, filed a patent for a 3D color printer. The 3D printing technology is not new of course.

Apple has already promised time and again to make different objects with different colors. So what’s new about the new patent?

Well, the additional inkjet-like technology! The idea works on the basis that there would be two print heads.

The primary print head will make objects from many layers of plastic-like material.

There would be another print head that would make those objects in any color desired.

The idea is pretty interesting though! Apple currently uses 3D printing to create prototypes for its new designs.

It is possible that Apple additionally takes part in making those machines and equipments real, that it uses in its everyday functioning and different procedures.

Taking this into account, we can guess that this patent is a great deal more inclined to be for something Apple utilizes rather than something we will be able to see soon on sale or in our hands.
