Amazon has just opened a new 3D Printing Store, which allows customers to customize and then purchase "more than 200 unique print-on-demand products."


Customer can take their pick from a wide variety of products to tweak: from cufflinks to credit card holders, iPhone cases to... err, custom bobbleheads. The amount of customization available on each product varies, but it includes attributes like material, size, style and color variations, as well as personalized text and image imprints.

Amazon itself isn't involved in the manufacturing process, instead farming out the production to 3D-printing businesses like Sculpteo, Mixee Labs, and 3DLT. They'll fulfil the orders while Amazon acts as a hub for customization and purchase. The store uses a new interface which allows customers to see what their customizations will look like on a 3D preview which can be rotated, flipped and zoomed.

There are some cheap products on offer—an impossible gear keychain, for instance—while prices head north for some of the larger, more extoci products, like lampshades. You can go explore the store right now.
