Brooklyn, N.Y. — 3D printer manufacturer MakerBot is expanding its retail presence this summer.

The company’s MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D printers will begin appearing in select Microsoft Stores nationwide. Previously, the units had been only shown in three West Coast Microsoft outlets.

The display, dubbed the MakerBot Experience, features a hands-on demonstration with a printer and the PLA filament used to make, or print, the final product.

The MakerBot Replicator 2 carries a $2,199 suggested retail.
