Along with Home Depot’s recent 3D printing news, Amazon has, of course, decided to take a piece of the customized 3D-printed pie. And it actually looks really cool. Consumers can now customize 3D-printed goods in terms of size, color, material and design. Products include jewelry, electronics, toys, games, phone cases, home decor, and heck even little bobbleheads!

In terms of the actual 3D printing, items are printed via Mixee, Scupteo and 3DLT.

Basically, you pick your object and then personalize it via 360-degree views.

Petra Schindler-Carter, Amazon Marketplace Sales director, said in a press release:

The introduction of our 3D Printed Products store suggests the beginnings of a shift in online retail – that manufacturing can be more nimble to provide an immersive customer experience.”

Prices beging at $30 and move upwards depending on the size and material of your product. Users cannot upload their own designs yet, but I’m sure Amazon will head in that direction soon. That way, I can finally 3D print myself as all 10 of these.

In the meantime, go 3D-printing crazy, you kids!
