AONIQ Unveils 888 3D Printer with Hopes to Disrupt the Industry, Democratize Manufacturing with PVC 3D Printing

3D printing, since its inception, has been synonymous with disruption—and revolution within world industry and manufacturing as we know it. So, it makes perfect sense that others would want to cause a disruption to 3D printing itself, especially as it has hit the mainstream and shown signs of growing quite comfortable there. That is exactly […]
