Staples Partners With 3D Systems To Launch In-Store Experience


Staples has partnered with 3D System to pilot 3D printing services in two stores in New York City and Los Angeles. Each store features an immersive 3D printing experience center that lets shoppers create personalized products and use 3D printing hardware. With the new experience centers, both small businesses and consumers are able to learn more about 3D printing through demonstration areas where they can use design software and see 3D Systems printers in action. Each store will have a photo booth to capture customers’ facial images for the purpose of personalizing 3D products like figurines, and customers can also print personalized smart phone cases.
