In case you haven’t gotten a hold of a 3D printer of your own, you can now buy pre-printed goods on Amazon. We totally should’ve expected this — you can buy anything and everything on Amazon. Some things with your phone or your own at-home scanner.
Taking a cue from the MakerBot momentum, Amazon opened up a 3D printing shop where you can purchase printed goods from various suppliers, including Mixee, Sculpteo and 3DLT. We hope you’re ready to flex your selective skills, there are a ton of products that you can customize, including futuristic fashion accessories, home decor and toys.
You can buy everything from a totally rad dawg sculpture ($35) to an iPhone stand ($55) to customizable jewelry. Like that knotted ring ($45)? You can change the color, size, width and amount of twist in the knot until you do.
Engrave your pup’s name and your contact info on a printed dog bone tag ($50) to brings Fido’s accessories up-to-date along with yours.
Print a slim wallet ($36), choosing a decal style, background, color and customizable text. This is the beauty of 3D printing — you can get exactly what you want when everything is made in a one-size-fits you batch to your specifications.
Speaking of one-size-fits-you… one of our favorite parts about the whole 3D shop is the create your own bobblehead ($30) feature. How freakin’ awesome?!
Obviously, we’re already faithful shoppers of Shapeways and Thingiverse, but it’s interesting to see 3D printing find a more mainstream marketplace. Not only are Amazon’s 3D offerings totally affordable (most are under $100), but it’s also making 3D printing even more accessible and reaching people who might not be shopping for 3D printed roses just yet. We’re hoping that they’ll work to bring goods from smaller, independent up-and-coming printers to the public next.
