Inkjet and Laser printers only print in the X and Y directions.

To print in 3D, you'll need a 3D printer

Not only that, the sophistication of a printer that can actually print photos would far exceed the budget of most individuals.

 

33 = 12.99213 inches > 13 inches

22 cm = 8.661417 = 8.66 or 8.7 inches

5 cm = 1.968504 = 2.0 inches

 

Results = 13 X 8.7 X 2 inches

 

What if you want to print 13 x 8.7

 

You need a printer that can handle the print size, including larger photo paper AND custom paper size forms.

and

Full Solution / Full Feature Software is required, too - "apps" won't do this.

Considerations

 

Use...

A wide format printer that can print larger than 8.5 inches.

Printers of this type also handle the 13 inches in the longer direction.

Example model

HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 Wide Format All-in-One Printer 

 

OR

Use...

Settle for 8.5 inches in the shorter direction.

Use a Printer that supports 13 inch long paper - printers that support 13 inch photo paper are more rare than printers that might simply support the 13 inches print size. 

 

OR

Use..

Any general printer that can handle Standard photo paper sizes

Print the photo in Poster format - "Tile" the larger sections and piece these together.
