MakerBot recently started selling the MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer at more than 300 Sam’s Club retail locations across the United States.
The MakerBot Replicator Mini Compact 3D Printer is an educational, useful and easy-to-use compact 3D printer that is just right for the office, classroom or home.
“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,” noted 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.”
Alfano noted that a big attraction for retailers is the comprehensive MakerBot 3D Ecosystem that provides ease-of-use and accessibility to the world of 3D printing through software, apps, MakerBot Learning, lectures, classes, and parts and support offered through its MakerCare program.
Dawn VonBechmann, senior vice president of technology, Sam’s Club: “Our members have shown interest in 3D printing, both from a professional and small business aspect. Any member with a natural interest in creating things will be excited to learn more about this amazing technology.”
