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
