SINGAPORE - Shoppers at Suntec City can try out a new 3D printing service offered at Singapore Post's newest post office, which opened on Monday.

For now, items that can be printed are limited to certain accessories.

Users can also customise 3D figurines using a face scanner available at the outlet.

Printing charges range from $19.90 for a pendant or bangle to $459 for a full-body figurine.

However, customers who have their own digital blueprints will not be able to print them at the outlet.

Instead, they can consult staff from 3D Matters, the company collaborating with SingPost.

The 3D printing service, which is on trial for at least three months, comes under the Suntec outlet's innovation centre, which SingPost is piloting.

Mr Elvin Too, SingPost's vice-president for post office products, services and network, said the company hopes to stay relevant to Singaporeans.

"Our customers' needs are ever-changing. This innovation corner serves as a test bed for innovative new services that can be offered at post offices in the future, such as 3D printing," he said.

The Suntec outlet is also part of SingPost's new generation of post offices that aims to provide more convenience to customers.

Its self-service kiosks are open 24 hours.

They include SAM, where customers can pay their bills and buy stamps, as well as POPStation, where users can collect their parcels outside of operating hours.
