Lowe’s Innovation Labs Brings 3-D Printing to Consumers

Home improvement shoppers can now order custom fixtures with the help of 3-D printers.

This week, Lowe’s Innovation Labs introduced in-store and online 3-D printing and scanning services to customers searching for replacement parts and one-of-a-kind creations, according Lowe’s. Lowe’s Innovation Labs is a technology development arm of the big box retailer.

The 3-D technology is being piloted at Orchard Supply Hardware in Mountain View, California, and online at Osh.com. The technology allows shoppers to customize the color, shape and material of products, including door knobs and cabinet fixtures.

The pilot program is expected to run for six months at the California store. Depending on customers’ responses, a larger rollout may happen eventually, according to an article by CNBC.
