3D Printing Shop Opens in NYC

This looks awesome! I'm definitely stopping by with a thumb drive full of projects next time I'm in NYC.

This is exciting. I hope they do well. We recently printed a working monkey wrench here.

I read recently that Staples is going to start rolling out color 3D Printing early next year but it looks like it might be awhile before it comes to the U.S.

Staples to offer in-store 3D printing on demand | Crave - CNET

The office supply chain's apparent partner in the venture, MCOR Technologies, makes a commercial-class color 3D printer called the Iris that will be deployed first to Staples locations in the Netherlands and Belgium in early 2013. MCOR announced the printing service, dubbed Staples Easy 3D, in a press release, and at the Euromold conference in Germany.

"Customized parts, prototypes, art objects, architectural models, medical models and 3D maps are items customers need today," Wouter Van Dijk, president of the Staples Printing Systems Division in Europe, said in the release.

Users would upload product designs online to be printed in-store and picked up, much like Staples currently does with business cards.

Staples says that after debuting in the northern European countries, the service will be "rolled out quickly to other countries."

No word on how quick that timeline might be, or which countries could be at the top of the list. There was also no indication of pricing, other than that it would be "low."
On that article also found this good use for 3D printing:

Better hurry! The store closes on the 27th.

But I'm sure there will be something to replace it soon.
