MakerBot and The Home Depot have collaborated to bring MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers to customers in Home Depot stores in California, Illinois and New York. This is the first time The Home Depot has offered 3D printers for sale in its stores. MakerBot 3D Printing and Scanning products will be showcased inside The Home Depot stores in specially designed kiosks that will encourage visitors to experience the wonder of 3D printing firsthand. Trained MakerBot retail staff will provide continual 3D printing demonstrations and offer 3D printed keepsakes for interested customers to take home with them, as well as help with purchase decisions. “We are thrilled to help bring MakerBot 3D printing technology to The Home Depot customers,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “We are continually looking to bring the latest innovation to our customers and are excited to offer MakerBot 3D Printing products in select stores,” said Joe Downey, Merchant, The Home Depot.
