Portfolio expansion ignites new wave of voxel-level innovation with low cost HP Jet Fusion 300 / 500 Series for functional parts in full color, black or white; Channel program evolution and new collaboration with Dassault Systèmes
Iona Bain for IG: D printing has been called the 'third industrial revolution and it has a market thats expected to be worth $35 billion in 2020. That doesnt make 3D printing an easy target for investors. Heres our guide to investing in the sector.
Carnegie Mellon University Extends Research into 3D Micro-Additive Manufacturing with Optomec Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics System
Developing novel methods to create next generation manufacturing processes for sensors, antennas and energy harvesting devices
Many companies that know how to design for metal 3D printing have found suitable applications and have ordered parts. But these applications are still in their infancy.
Dave Pinter for PSFK: The process works with the robot arm dispensing a stream of silicone into a tank of clear gel, the consistence of which isnt too far off from hair gel. The technique allows for object with internal volumes to be printed without extra internal support.
The open diamond structure of the supports generated by Materialise e-Stage doesnt just make it possible to recover larger amounts of expensive metal powder, it also significantly reduces the risks related to HSE.
Jeff Engel for Xconomy: NVBots was founded by MIT students who were frustrated that the 3D printers they were using lacked capabilities for remotely collaborating on the design of parts and for controlling the printer.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: It's an early step in a bold experiment by a global retailer to use time-saving robots to design small-batch collections, a departure from the mass production methods employed by global shoe and apparel brands.
JP Buntinx for The Merkle: The Printrbelt prints objects on the belt and then moves down the Z axis to get the object onto the surface below
DesignBoom.com: Built using a two-meter high construction robot, the machine works by moving autonomously on caterpillar tracks.
By 3D Printing Gauges, Jigs and Fixtures On-Demand and On-Site, Manufacturing Facility Saves an Average of Eight Weeks in Production
Stephen J Bronner for Entrepreneur: Divergent 3D, founded by a one-time investor and two-time entrepreneur, holds patents on technologies that allow carmakers to print vehicles.
This technology can be used to fabricate microstructures with outstanding mechanical properties, which have promising potential uses in implants and other biomedical applications.
After a developing period of 1.5 years 3D Ninja, the largest reseller of 3D printers in The Netherlands, officially launches http://www.ifind3d.com, the world's largest search engine for 3D printable models, containing 740.029 designs.
John Biggs for TechCrunch: The Blackbelt Kickstarter will launch in three days and you can expect the system to cost about 9,500 for a desktop system or 12,500 euro for a larger system with standing supports.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
