3D printing gets a boost in Australia
HumanEyes 3D technology has been receiving a lot of positive press of late, in both the offset and wide format inkjet sectors. CJ King, the Perth based wholesale printer is the latest printer to add lenticular printing to its product line by installing HumanEyes Litho 3D software to drive their Heidelberg UV press. The investment sees CJ King now become one of the leading users of HumanEyes Lenticular technology in the region.
Chris Temov, Business Development Manager of CJ King said, “the objective is simple - we want to become the primary source for 3D Lenticular printing in the Australasian market place. We are ideally positioned to do this and with the HumanEyes technology available to us, I see no reason why it cannot happen at pace.”

He continued “The software allows creative professionals to build 3D files and other Lenticular effects in an application that any Photoshop user can operate, and then send that file to us, we print it and send it back, and the software even allows them to get soft proofs on screen.” HumanEyes software comes in several versions; Capture3D for the creation of photographic 3D sequences, Creative 3D to design lenticular effects and soft proof, Digital3D for large format and point of sale lenticular production, and Litho3D for lenticular production on Litho presses.
Ronan Sobel Vice President of Graphic Arts Sales for HumanEyes commented, “We are very excited about the ambitions of CJ King, and are delighted to have been chosen to provide the technology to facilitate their vision. The product is perfect for them and they are ideally situated to deliver 3D Lenticular to the mass market. The release of the HumanEyes Creative3D software for designers was a key factor in CJ Kings selection of HumanEyes; now customers can build 3D, flips, animations and motion on their desktop. This is the first time ever that designers have been granted complete control over their lenticular creations”.
Chris Graham, Managing Director of Premedia Technologies, and master distributor for the ANZ region of HumanEyes stated “This is a very significant step forward for HumanEyes in particular, and lenticular printing in general in the Australian market. We have built a strong relationship with CJ King which will see us into the future, and with HumanEyes’ technology, lenticular printing has become as complex as a tick box on a print specification form.”
