New but not a surprise to see Amazon.com has add a section to their site devoted to 3D printers and printing supplies.

From VentureBeat:

The company has launched its own dedicated section to the [3D] technology on its website, where shoppers can find printers, printer filament, books, software, and accessories all in one place.

The move is obviously a massive boost for the fledging consumer 3D printing market, which has slowly been creeping into the mainstream but has so far largely lacked major corporate retailer support.

The Amazon announcement comes after Staples became the first major U.S. retailer to sell a 3D printer (3D Systems Cube) on May 3, 2013.
