Home Depot Brings MakerBot 3D Printers to Select Stores

MakerBot and The Home Depot® announce a collaboration to bring MakerBot® Replicator® Desktop 3D Printers to 12 Home Depot stores in California, Illinois and New York beginning July 14, 2014. This is the first time The Home Depot has offered 3D printers for sale in its stores and will be a pilot program for MakerBot and The Home Depot.

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.

By joining forces to showcase the power and versatility of 3D printing in a DIY retail environment, the companies hope to educate customers, who range from builders, architects and contractors to designers, landscapers and general consumers, on the benefits of 3D printing technology. MakerBot 3D printing is used for fast, inexpensive production of replacement parts, product prototypes, architectural designs, art projects, collectibles and many other items.

"We are thrilled to partner with The Home Depot to help bring MakerBot 3D printing technology to The Home Depot customers," noted Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. "Imagine a world where you can 3D print replacement parts and use 3D printing as an integral part of design and building work. Every day we see the magic of 3D printing becoming a reality with our customers; now The Home Depot can also see that magic. We can't wait to see what The Home Depot customers make with our products."
