MakerBot opens a new MakerBot store-within-a-store on May 29, 2014 at the B&H SuperStore at 420 Ninth Avenue in New York. This is the first store-within-a-store for MakerBot and its largest retail experience outside of its own MakerBot Retail Stores in New York, Boston and Greenwich, Connecticut.

B&H is known for its professional photo, video, printing and audio products and services, and 3D printing will, according to B&H, nicely complement its already vast array of products offered.

The new MakerBot store-within-a-store at B&H will be a large, 150-square-foot area in the center of the store where MakerBot Replicator desktop 3D printers and 3D scanners will be demonstrated and their capabilities for the photo, video and audio customer will be highlighted. Store stuff have been trained and will be able to demonstrate their 3D printing skills for customers. Customers will be able to purchase 3D printers or accessories on-site or shop online via B&H's online shop.

B&H has been selling MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers online for a few months. According to B&H, its customers have used 3D printed parts for drones/copters used in Aerial Imaging.

"Photographers and videographers as well as sound technicians are some of the most prolific creators of 3D printed clips, holders, mounts, rails and other accessories that complement B&H's product lines. This industry has everyday uses for 3D printed accessories." noted Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot, who is also an avid photographer and videographer.

@Bri Hey...Like, this isn't cool and stuff. You can file with the patent office if you have prior art. It's cheap to do...just a few thousand dollars or something for your legal team. I've got millions now so that is, like, not very much. ...I can't wait to see what kind of stuff you'll come up with. Bree

Or maybe coverage on how not a single user has gotten a 5th gen printer to run more than 20 hours without breaking, jamming and needing it's print head sent back to makerbot.
