The UPS Store announced a pilot project to offer 3D printing as one of its services. The machines can produce engineering parts, functional prototypes, acting props, and architectural models at higher resolutions than consumer devices.

“Start-ups, entrepreneurs and small business owners may not have the capital to purchase a 3D printer on their own, but they may have a need to show prototypes to their current and potential customers,” said Michelle Van Slyke, Vice President of Marketing and Small Business Solutions at The UPS Store. “By offering 3D printing capabilities in-center, we’re able to help further our small business customers’ opportunities for success.”

The UPS Store will deploy uPrint SE Plus machines produced by Stratasys, starting in San Diego, but expanding to additional cities in the U.S.
