Manufacture spare parts for your appliances using 3D printing


A famous French chain of stores, specifically the one known by the name of Baker, has just launched a new service for its customers through which they, through a 3D printer, can manufacture its own parts and spare parts for all products purchased in this chain of stores. Thanks to these peculiar and unusual services, which we hope will quickly become fashionable, their useful life will be much longer and more valuable.

We say this since, as insurance today you will be accustomed, on many occasions an appliance ends up in the trash because due to some type of accident or neglect, it is missing a part that means that we can no longer use it, being the cost of its repair the same as the purchase value of a completely new one. Due to this and to remedy this problem, the guys from Boulanger have decided to launch an online store where the files have been uploaded to manufacture using a 3D printer more than a hundred pieces common to many items sold today.


As a person in charge of this chain says, at the moment only pieces of the products sold by Boulanger herself are included, although today it is negotiating with other brands to join its platform in order to be able to enrich the downloadable parts catalog with its own spare parts.

Without a doubt we are before one of the most interesting after-sales services you can find since, thanks to this proposal, any user who breaks or deforms a substantial part of his appliance, will only have to enter the repository, download the files and print them in order to proceed with their replacement.
