Episode 9 of Printing Money starts with some positive industry news as Alex and Danny discuss Vienna-based Cubicure being acquired by orthodontic company Align Technology. However it’s swings and roundabouts in the 3D printing industry, as Sigma Additive announces plans to sell its additive manufacturing IP to become an online travel company. In the venture world, a number of start-ups have made progress in the last month, with Metafold3D, Saeki Robotics, and Kind Designs all closing seed rounds. Finally, the merger talks between Stratasys and 3D Systems appear to have come to an end for now, with Stratasys rejecting the latest merger offer from 3D Systems.
