3D Is Mainstreaming It – Right Here in Cranberry

CoolKidShowingOffPiece-750x400Piecemaker Technologies right here in East Liberty has launched one of the first really mass applications of 3D printing technology in retail, and, announced that Toys”R”Us will offer 3D printing for this holiday season – in (PA) Cranberry and New Jersey.

You will be able to print small gifts and personalized items.

How did the Pittsburgh AlphaLab Gear startup break through and create a product for the childrens’ retail market? The partnership plans really happened after Piecemaker piloted its technology in three independent stores in the region, including S.W. Randall toy stores.

Are you going to go try it out?
