There is no way to stop 3D printer's home invasion. Though Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos believes 3D printing will not change the distribution of products anytime soon, the company sees also the explosive growth of 3D printing.
Amazon decided to seriously involve in the 3D printing market by launching a new section for 3D Printers & Supplies under Industrial & Scientific > Additive Manufacturing Products category.
The 3D printers included in the list are MakerBot Replicator 2, Afinia 3D Printer H-Series, 3D Systems' Cubify (not available), fabbster 3D Printer, Airwolf3D and a few Chinese brands.
Also included in the category are 3D Printing Materials - ABS and PLA filament - as well as parts and accessories, a selection of 3D printer books and CAD software.
Amazon starts it pretty simple, and very little information are provided with the 3D printers. It probably will take a while before all the features, descriptions and reviews being filling in. But as Amazon's 3D Printers & Supplies" section grows, it will be another good channel to shop online for 3D printing hardware and supplies.

Ouch - the first featured product on the 3D Printer homepage is Chinese Makerbot knockoff. No wonder they went closed source.

We don't have that in the UK yet. And I've just discovered that you have the most incredible Amazon imaginable - we don't have any of the funky stuff here!
