3-D printers have officially gone mainstream. You can now get one at Staples for $1,300. (CNN)
Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLS) says it is the first major U.S. retailer to sell a 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD)‘s 3-D printer. It began selling The Cube, made by 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD), on Staples.com Friday, and the printer will hit “many” of the retailer’s brick-and-mortar stores by June. While 3-D printers have long been used in industrial manufacturing, a recent “maker” movement is slowly popularizing in-home versions of the devices. The Cube, like other 3-D printers, is a machine that creates physical, three-dimensional objects. The printer uses a digital design file as a blueprint, then builds the item layer by layer with plastic powder or liquid. Users can print anything they can design, including action figures, iPhone docks and coffee cup holders.
