Carbon makes it into MIT Technology Review’s 50 Smartest Companies 2016 list

Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology was all the buzz when Carbon incorporated the manufacturing technique in its M1 3D printer that it grabbed attention from peers and even the labs at MIT. Carbon rose through the industry with the help of investors in the likes of Google VenturesSequoia Capital, and Silver Lake Kraftwerk.

CLIP was seen by MIT as one idea that could entirely revolutionize the 3D printing industry as it helps tackle one of the most common evils in 3D printing a product- time duration. CLIP incorporated M1 3D printer was able to print out 100 times faster than its peers. MIT has appreciated the innovation by making Carbon the sole 3D printing firm present on the list.  The $140 million dollar company makes it in the list among giants like AmazonAlphabet and Tesla.

HP extending Global 3D Printing Centre in Barcelona

HP has announced that they’re extending the Global 3D printing centre in Sant Cugat del Vallès, a municipality to the north of Barcelona, to the center of all their industrial 3D printing projects. When we say industrial 3D printing project, read HP Jet Fusion 3D printers.

HP claims the Jet Fusion line of industrial 3D printers which are expected to be launched by this year end or earlier next year, are 10 times faster than its competitors and guarantee increased production rates at half the cost! Now, that’s a well pitched product!

“Our commitment to this latest technology, which is set to reinvent design, prototyping and manufacturing has resulted in these facilities becoming too small,” remarked Helena Herrero, President of HP Iberia.

Stratasys releases report citing 3D Printing advancements in Medical care

Stratasys has been recently hitting the news boards for their conglomeration with various private entities in developing advanced medical care equipments. “Enhancing Clinical Preparedness – Review of Published Literature on 3D Printing Applications for Medical Education and Training”- a report presented  by Stratasys shows what the company has been upto. Here’s an excerpt from the report:

“All studies report 3D printing to be a cost-effective solution. Based on the expense of the 3D printed replicas, excluding capital outlay and ongoing operational costs, the studies state that the technology is more affordable than all other physical models. Adams et al. report a 90% to 95% cost reduction versus plastinated models, and McMenamin et al. show that a $14,000 plastinated model can be replaced by a $350 3D printed replica. The studies report 3D printing costs, based on material consumption, ranging from $10 to $2,600.”
