3D printing is coming to a UPS Store near you

Kevin Lee | Aug. 5, 2013
After acquiring MakerBot, Stratasys makes its first consumer 3D printing push by partnering with UPS.

Apparently, Brown can do more for you than just ship your packages. UPS retail stores, starting with one in San Diego and coming to more locations around the US in the future, will begin offering 3D printing services using a StratasysuPrint SE Plus printer.

Previously, Staples was the only retail chain in the US to offer 3D printing. Let's hope this is part of a bigger trend so we can start fabricating trinkets wherever we have to wait in a line.

And if Statasys sounds familiar, it's because it's the company that bought MakerBot Industries back in June.
