MakerBot® Announces New Retail Store

MakerBot, the Brooklyn-based global leader in the 3D printing technology, has opened its first retail location in New York. The MakerBot Store, opened to the public on September 20th. The MakerBot Store opening follows three exciting announcements from MakerBot all on the same day: two new Desktop 3D Printers and a brand new software package, MakerWare.

“I have dreamed of opening this store ever since we started MakerBot. Technology like our Desktop 3D Printers has to be seen to be believed,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “The MakerBot Store is a utopia for creative explorers, and it’s full of MakerBot-made things that make perfect gifts.”

Visitors to the MakerBot Store will have the unprecedented opportunity to experience MakerBot technology, such as the just-released MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, live and in-person. The machines will be up and running, and patrons will have the chance to purchase amazing gifts and accessories made on MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers, created at the company’s workshop.

The MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer will also be available for immediate purchase at the MakerBot Store, as will MakerBot PLA and ABS Filament, which are available in more than 30 colors.

Other attractions at the store that will be sure to delight 3D printing enthusiasts all the way from hobbyists to professional engineers and designers include:

  • A MakerBot Gumball machine with a variety of MakerBot-made products to choose from.
  • Ongoing demonstrations by MakerBot 3D Design staff
  • Really cool project installations such as the MakerBot Marble Run, a giant contraption made almost entirely on MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers.
  • And much, much more.
