The printing industry in Australia is worth $8bn and there are over 4,500 printing businesses in operation. However, it is not only catalogues and pamphlets that are printed. Understanding how to professionally reproduce imagery for 2D and 3D construction will help to produce industry prototypes such as medical implants and sustainable fabrics. This shift from traditional to digital printing means there is a need for new ways of thinking and a demand for innovative, adaptable printers to continue to grow and transform the industry.
