It’s another potentially big step for the 3D printing industry.

Home Depot is now selling 3D printers at 12 locations in the U.S., a pilot project to determine the customer appetite for such a product.

Bloomberg says the world’s largest home-improvement chain has been offering the MakerBot printers on its website for three months. The store hopes to appeal to “forward thinking contractors and do-it-yourselfers” by offering the devices.

The appeal of 3D printers is that customers can use them to create parts and supplies that could be used for repairs or new projects. There’s no word yet on whether these printers will be sold at Home Depot’s Canadian locations.
