Desktop Metal is “Excited to Contribute to the Industry with Our Technology” as Metal 3D Printing Excites the Market

A year after exploding onto the scene at RAPID + TCT 2017, Boston-based Desktop Metal was back to the event for the 2018 edition, slightly more sedate — if you can call a two-level booth in an exhibit hall sedate. Not a company to do anything small (aside from fine detail in metal 3D printing), […]

From Art to Science: 3D Systems Execs Continue Discussion on Taking 3D Printing from Prototype to Production

From Art to Science: 3D Systems Execs Continue Discussion on Taking 3D Printing from Prototype to Production

When 3D printing first emerged, it was squarely targeted at rapid prototyping; 3D Systems understands this origin perhaps better than most, as the original patent for stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing was awarded to company co-founder and CTO Chuck Hull. A lot has happened since the 1980s, and technological and market advances have seen 3D printing […]
