What many people in the United States do not realize is the fact that Germany is a hotbed for 3D printing. The European nation is third, only to the United States and Japan in additive manufacturing output. Germany is also one of the global leaders in consumer based 3D printers, known in their country as 3D Druckers.
A German 3D printer manufacturer, German RepRap GmbH, has just announced that they will be expanding their marketing efforts to the United States, as well as the United Kingdom. Starting this week, they will be making their new NEO 3D Printer available to both markets. The printer has been selling in Germany for several months, and has been the recipient of many positive reviews. It has the ability to print at high speeds, and has a fairly large build chamber.
