Power-up your 3D printing experience, and add NFC tags to your spools!

1. Find NFC tags
The NFC is a powerful technology, available by default on most of middle-end and high-end devices (even on some of low-end devices!)
It is a wireless feature: you just have to “touch” a NFC tag with your phone and an action will be performed!
For example, the Nintendo Amiibos use NFC tags to communicate with your game consoles. Your credit cards also contain NFC tags for contactless payments.
It is a “low-cost” technology: NFC tags can be bought for a very small price!

-> NFC tags as badges or cards:
As you can see, you can easily purchase 10+ NFC stickers for less than 5$.
2. Write NFC tags with RollingUp
