The Original Factory-In-A-Store

The Factory in a Store is the first and only Custom Inventory-On-Demand solution for retail. Let your customers personalize their own products using a simple and engaging touchscreen kiosk, and then watch as they are 3D printed right in the store. This highly unique, memorable and educational shopping experience leaves your customers with a one-of-a-kind product and story worth sharing.

Customizing The Piece

Shoppers use the intuitive touch-screen PieceMaker kiosk to create their one-of-a-kind piece.

First shoppers browse the digital product gallery and choose a gift, toy, jewelry or other piece they want to customize. Then they choose the color, add their name, date, or other personalized details at the kiosk before sending the item to print.

In Store 3D Printing

Watch the excitement on your customer’s face as they watch their one-of-a-kind piece being printed from our 3D printer. Your employees manage the printstation with minimal intervention required to print and retrieve the 3D printed pieces. For a low monthly subscription, we provide the hardware and software for 3D printing, with plastic filament being the only material needed to print toys on demand.
