Home Depot first major retailer to sell 3-D printers in store
Dozens of stores in California, Illinois and New York are now selling Makerbot printers as part of a pilot program.
3-D printers use electronic documents to mold plastics in to shapes, creating objects from small sculptures to auto parts.
Participating Home depot stores will have a person showing how they work, and printing small keepsakes for customers.
Home Depot has also had the printers on its website for a few months.
But this is the first time a major retailer has sold a line of 3-D printers in store.
