Home Depot first retail store to sell 3-D printers

Updated: Tuesday, July 15 2014, 06:24 AM CDT
Home Depot is taking its first major step into the 3-D printer market.

Under a pilot program, it began selling Markerbot printers in a dozen of its stores in California, Illinois and New York this week.

The printers are used to make 3-D plastic objects.

Each store that sells them has a kiosk staffed by Makerbot workers to demonstrate how they work, and print small keepsakes for customers.

The Home Depot has been selling the printers on its website for the past three months, but this is the first time it has sold them in its stores.

Makerbot sells 3-D printers and scanners ranging in price from $800 to $2,900.

The official news release by Makerbot did not say how much they would be sold for inside the Home Depot.

This is the first time a major retailer has sold a line of 3-D printers in-store.Home Depot first retail store to sell 3-D printers
