MakerBot 3D Printers Coming to Home Depot – Yahoo News
At first glance, you may not see how a 3-D printer fits in with the hardware supply giant, but, as Engadget said, The Home Depots core business revolves around helping you craft things, so it stands to reason that youd eventually find 3-D printers there, doesnt it? Home Depot is now selling MakerBot 3-D printers online, as well as in 12 stores in California, Illinois and New York, as part of a pilot project. Because of the printers ability to create parts and supplies, such as cup holders, U-clips and pipe stakes, Home Depot thinks they will appeal to more forward-thinking contractors and DIYers. Its a pilot for us to test a potential disruptive technology, and to make sure we are on the forefront of a new innovative product, Joe Downey, an online merchant at Atlanta-based Home Depot, told Bloomberg . This move will bring 3-D printers to a more mainstream audience. Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot, said in a press release : Imagine a world where you can 3-D print replacement parts and use 3-D printing as an integral part of design and building work. We cant wait to see what The Home Depot customers make with our products.
