Other retailers are getting into the 3D printing trend at the same time. In June, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) launched a 3D printing store. Additionally, Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) sells 3D printers. Customers can also purchase 3D artwork and items from other sites including Etsy and Makeably.
Shapeways has been very active in promoting 3D printing and making it more accessible. There are even things for users who are not interested in designing their own products. These individuals can use ready made apps to create what they want.
Before this new app, sellers on eBay did offer a number of 3D printed objects for sale. However, they were not well organized and hard for buyers to find. This app could become an excellent revenue stream for the company depending on the popularity of 3D printing.
