MakerBot Expands Distrubution

The company is now selling its systems in Sam's Clubs across the U.S.

MakerBot, a provider of 3D desktop printers, has expanded accessibility to its products by making the Replicator Mini Compact 3D printer available at more than 300 Sam’s Club locations nationwide.

The Replicator Mini system, according to the company, is suited for applications in the office, classroom or home. The company is also working to make the technology more available by offering software, apps, lectures, classes and technical support.

“I truly believe that having the opportunity to learn about 3D printing first-hand is a big step towards a better understanding of the technology,” said Frank Alfano, acting CEO of MakerBot. “By expanding our retail presence into Sam’s Club, we’re providing opportunities to reach professionals, entrepreneurs and small business owners and show them the power of 3D printing. Offering MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D printers in retail stores exposes potential users to 3D printing technology and provides them an opportunity to understand the benefits of 3D printing today. We’ve made a conscious effort this past year to expand accessibility to MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers by working with key retailers like Sam’s Club.”
