MEDIA ALERT: Visit MakerBot at the NY Toy Fair
MakerBot, a global leader in desktop 3D printing, will be at the New
York Toy Fair February 16 through 19, 2014, and will be
exhibiting its new MakerBot
Digital Store 3D printed collections. Toy Fair visitors
are invited to visit the MakerBot Booth #3127 and see the
MakerBot Digital Store collections first hand and experience the
MakerBot 3D Printing Ecosystem.
The MakerBot Digital Store is the site for original, fun
and collectible digital content for MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D
Printers. The MakerBot Digital Store launched in January at the
International Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)) and has already
become a popular destination for those interested in easy-to-3D
print and assemble models.
The MakerBot Digital Store provides a place that offers original,
fun and collectible digital content directly to the end user.
MakerBot Digital Store Series One Collections include: Around
Town™, Chunky Trucks™, The Cosmic Cadets™, Dragons of
Glastonbury™, Famous Flyers™ and PetPals™. The MakerBot Digital
Store is only available for the MakerBot fifth generation desktop
3D printers and the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer
(fourth generation). In the MakerBot Digital Store, visitors can
purchase high-quality, delightful, printable and paintable digital
3D models and collections. The models are MakerBot Verified to
successfully print on MakerBot Replicator 2 and fifth generation
MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers. The MakerBot Digital
Store effectively turns a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer
into an in-home entertainment device and completely redefines the
distribution channel: there is no packaging, no shelving
requirements, no distributor/retailer mark-up, and the customer
can print as many copies from the digital file as they desire.
MakerBot has created the models so they do not require supports or
glue. Pricing is based by individual digital 3D file (.x3g and
.makerbot) or by the collection. Prices start at $0.99 per file or
$9.99 for a collection, and are only available through the
MakerBot Digital Store.
