Office Depot to offer 3-D printing services in 150 stores

Office Depot plans to expand 3D Systems Cube 3-D printing services to 150 Office Depot stores nationwide as a result of positive customer feedback.

Customers can see 3-D printing technology in action by attending demonstrations in stores in participating states — California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, Oregon and Texas. Cube or CubeX applications are also available for purchase on www.officedepot.com for consumers who want to print on their own.

The 3D Systems Cube is equipped with a tablet-like touchscreen and offers 16 different color options, including two that glow in the dark. It prints objects up to 5.5” x 5.5” x 5.5” in size. It prints objects in all sizes up to 10.8” x 10.45” x 9.5.”

“We received an overwhelming response from our initial pilot program in Denver,” said George Hill, Office Depot’s SVP of copy and print depot. “Customers ranging from tech buffs and entrepreneurs to marketers, educators and stay-at-home parents commented on how they would utilize 3-D printing in their lives. With that insight, we knew we needed to expand the scope and offer these demonstrations to markets across the country.”
