Raytheon subsidiary Collins Aerospace is expanding its Des Moines, Iowa 3D printing center with at least $14 million. The 9,000 foot facility will let the company make engine and land based turbine components. 

Igus has made a customizable e-Chain that gets 3D printed in 36 hours, saves 80% of the weight of previous systems and is delivered to customers quicker. This represents a huge opportunity in industrial automation, machine building and production lines.

Circular materials company Balena has worked with designer Kitty Shukman to make roots: 3D printed sustainable shoes that are made of a compostable elastomer.
