'3D Heights' Offers First Corner Store Approach to 3D Printing

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — 3D printing can sound, well, complex. Even if you have something you'd like to print, where should you go to get it modeled? And if you'd like to buy a 3D printer, who can you talk to about your options? 3D Heights, a new 3D printing store in Washington Heights, aims to make 3D printing easy. The store sells 3D printers and offers customizable printing, as well as education and training services. It sells all brands, making it one of the few unbiased 3D printing stores in New York. 3D Heights CEO Jerry Castanos says that as 3D printing becomes more accessible, use of the technology will skyrocket. His goal? To be the catalyst of this transition. Castanos says 3D printing will be making a boom soon as business owners and school principals starting using the technology. For investors, this means they should be paying attention to 3D printing. Video provided by TheStreet
