UPS Now Offers 3D Printing

If you work for a startup, own a small business, or an entrepreneur, the UPS store will now offer you 3D printing on site. UPS is offering the service for companies that want to quickly and cheaply roll out models and prototypes of devices they want to produce. The store is testing the uPrint SE Plus, which according to the manufacturer is better equipped to handle detailed, industrial-type projects than the Makerbot – albeit at ten times the cost. Staples attempted to capitalize on 3D printing last fall, but the offerings are only available online in select locations. For the time being, UPS’s service is rolling out in San Diego, with the intent to reach across the nation.TA
