MakerBot, in partnership with Sanrio, is bringing 3D printable Hello Kitty collectibles and accessories to MakerBot Digital Store and the MakerBot PrintShop app.

In celebration of Hello Kitty's 40th anniversary, MakerBot and Sanrio have collaborated and designed a line of 3D printable Hello Kitty collectibles, which can be 3D printed on MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers.

The collection debuts at Hello Kitty Con, the first official Hello Kitty convention, taking place at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA (The Museum of Contemporary Art) in Los Angeles on October 30, 2014.

The MakerBot Hello Kitty 3D printable content is available on the MakerBot Digital Store in two installments, starting on October 30 with a deluxe Hello Kitty 3D printable figure and five snap-on 3D printable outfits. Prices for the digital designs on the MakerBot Digital Store start at $3.99 per digital model. Additional Hello Kitty accessories (comb, barrette, stencil and more) are expected to be available on the MakerBot Digital Store in November.

Also being released today is a Hello Kitty & Friends ring topper pack in MakerBot PrintShop. With this tool, would-be designers can easily create rings in the ring maker module of PrintShop that feature Hello Kitty, Bad Badtz-Maru and My Melody. Prices for the digital designs in MakerBot PrintShop start at $0.09 per digital model.

"We are so excited to be able to bring Sanrio's iconic characters into the world of 3D printing and to our MakerBot community through the MakerBot Digital Store and the MakerBot PrintShop app," noted Jenny Lawton, acting CEO of MakerBot and a long-time fan of Hello Kitty. "This addition of Hello Kitty content to the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem helps extend the attraction of 3D printing to a whole new audience and showcases that 3D printing can be easy and accessible to everyone. We also love Sanrio's commitment to delivering 'big smiles in small gifts' and look to continue the tradition with a new generation of makers."
