UPS Store adding 3D printing at 100 more stores
As part of the special program the UPS store is going to supply about 100 locations with 3D printing facilities. In 2013, the retail arm of United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS), based in Atlanta, started testing the Stratasys uPrint SE Plus printer, which can be useful to create such things as functional prototypes, engineering components, architectural samples, fixed appliances for cameras, acting props, cables and lights.
Technological leader from UPS Store explained that there are some essential differences between professional 3D printers and those serving at home. Some steps that are essential for producing simple printers and are time consuming become automated on the uPrint SE Plus. Thus they achieve extra reliability and precision, higher quality of what they get as the result and a much higher rate of success in comparison with home 3D printing.
