Today Ladyada and I visited the new MakerBot store in NYC. Video above, (photos here). Great location, and it was packed in waves, even on a Sunday. MakerBot has MakerBot-made designs for sale in the store, as well as community-made models. All the designers were contacted and compensated for their participation. If you’re keeping score on retail 3D printer shops: MakerBot was the only retail store in the USA devoted to 3D printing, but that did not last long. Today I saw that California now has a 3D printer retail store that is selling a $600 3D printer (update: the printer is $850). Ladyada and I are considering making a 3D printing kit, still doing research. :)
