Brooklyn, N.Y. – The Home Depot has expanded its “MakerBot Experience” 3D-printing test from 12 to 39 stores.
The in-store Experience displays showcase the vendor’s 3D printing products in specially-designed interactive kiosks. The kiosks are manned by MakerBot-provided staff that offer customers demonstrations and 3D-printed keepsakes.
The No. 1 home improvement chain also carries the MakerBot line of Replicator printers and PLA filaments on its e-commerce site.
“We are really excited to expand MakerBot’s presence in physical stores,” noted Jenny Lawton, acting CEO of MakerBot. “The addition of these new locations will bring the magic of 3D printing with a MakerBot Replicator directly to customers.”
The Home Depot began its test of 3D printing last summer.
