Customers will be able to experience the new technology with hands-on demonstrations inside select retail stores.
MakerBot’s Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers have been popping up at select Microsoft retail stores on the West Coast this summer, and the ‘MakerBot Experience‘ is now expanding to 15 more stores across the U.S. This will make it possible for the average customer to experience the new technology.
The stores will offer hands-on 3D printing demonstrations on the Replicator 2 that allow people to see the printing first-hand. As well as seeing it in action, they will be able to purchase the 3D printer and PLA Filament. David McAughan, chief operating officer for Microsoft retail stores, said:
3D printing is a significant technological innovation, and we want all our customers to experience it first-hand, to learn how they can use and benefit from it in their own lives. The relationship with MakerBot has been very successful so far, and Microsoft looks forward to seeing the ‘MakerBot Experience’ rolled out into more stores.”
