Why 3D Systems Corporation Should Be Worried About Stratasys, Ltd.'s Amazing New 3-D Printer (DDD, SSYS)

 Undoubtedly, the Holy Grail of 3-D printing will be achieved when it fundamentally changes how the world manufactures just about everything. Before this far-off day can become a reality, 3-D printing technology needs to advance to the point where it rivals traditional manufacturing in terms of speed, scale, cost, and ability to print in a range of materials and colors.

“3D bioprinting facilities with the ability to print human organs and tissue will advance far faster than general understanding and acceptance of the ramifications of this technology,” says Pete Basiliere, research director at Gartner.

 
STOCKHOLM, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Sweden's Arcam was2013's best performing 3D printer maker, with investorsdesperate for exposure to a metal printing technique that ismaking manufacturing more efficient.Shares
Tony Bannan's insight:

 Shares in the tiny company whose clients include GE Aviation ,Boeing, Airbus and GKN Aerospace, surged 530 percent in the past year rocketing ahead of 3D printing giants 3D Systems and Stratasys.

Nanotechnology is getting closer to 3D nanoprinting | 3d printers and 3d scanners | Scoop.it
Fabrication of three-dimensional (3D) objects through direct deposition of functional materials - also called additive manufacturing - has been a subject of intense study in the area of macroscale manufacturing for several decades. These 3D printing techniques are reaching a stage where desired products and structures can be made independent of the complexity of their shapes. Researchers in Korea have now shown that nanoscale 3D objects such as free-standing nanowalls can by constructed by an additive manufacturing scheme.

Shapeways Partners With Sixense MakeVR: 3D Printing Meets Virtual Reality - Shapeways Blog on 3D Printing News & Innovation

Shapeways Partners With Sixense MakeVR: 3D Printing Meets Virtual Reality  - Shapeways Blog on 3D Printing News & Innovation | 3d printers and 3d scanners | Scoop.it
We're excited to announce our partnership with Sixense and MakeVR, a virtual reality software that enables anyone to create 3D-printable objects by using wireless gesture-control devices with natural hand motions. Sixense MakeVR software will make it easier for people to create 3D designs and print 3D objects. MakeVR is integrated with Shapeways so you can order your designs directly from the MakeVR interface and have your designs 3D printed from Shapeways.


Sixense is currently doing a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign to raise money for MakeVR. What's very unique about MakeVR is that it has both the software and hardware that makes designing, creating, and accessing 3D printing more engaging and intuitive. It enables consumers to create 3D designs that look professionally done.
