Amazon.com Adds 3D Printing Section to Web Site
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.
