3D Printing the Future

3D printing has been around since the 80s, but it’s only in the last couple of years that it has really come into its own. In 2011, the Business Insider boldly announced that it’s going to be “the next trillion dollar industry”. According to Wall Street, 3D printing stocks remain “very attractive” long-term investments. VCs are likewise bullish about the industry. Last week, three companies specialising in 3D printing, Mcor technologies, The 3Doodler and FDM Digital Solutions, received funding from investors. This should come as no surprise since 3D printing is fast becoming a hugely important tool in manufacturing and product development. It’s already being used to produce airplane and automobile parts, toys, jewelry, food, and even human tissue. We’re predicting many more 3D printing investments in the first half of 2014.
