3D Systems partners with Staples in New York, Los Angeles 3D Systems (DDD) announced a partnership with Staples (SPLS) in a pilot of 3D printing services in two Staples stores in New York City and Los Angeles. Each Staples store features an immersive 3D printing experience center that lets consumers and small businesses create personalized products and use 3D printing hardware. Customers can also bring in their own 3D print-ready files to have them printed. Staples previously announced in May of 2013 that it would be the first major U.S. retailer to carry 3D printers, with the launch of the Cube from 3D Systems on Staples.com. The company has since rolled out 3D printing hardware and accessories in a limited number of stores, and expanded its overall product selection.
