Amazon Partners With 3D Printing Pros to Bring Shop to Life

Mashable reports that Amazon is taking 'on demand' to the next level with a 3D printing store.




Amazon has always been an on-demand marketplace of sorts; it can ship virtually anything in two days.

But now, the online retail giant is taking “on demand” to a new level with its first 3D printing product marketplace.

As its name suggests, the 3D Printing Store is a place where you can select and customize products that are then 3D printed and delivered to you. The store features dozens of items, including jewelry and trinkets, iPhone cases, bobblehead dolls (even ones that, with a little customization, can look like you), home decor and accessories, toys and art pieces. While most of these objects cost less than $40, the jewelry often retails for $100 or more.

Let us be clear: Amazon is not actually 3D printing anything. Instead, it partnered with a handful of 3D printing pros to bring this shop to life, including Sculpteo, MixeeLabs and 3DLT. It’s actually those companies’ 3D products and services that Amazon is selling.
