Rapid Ready Roundup: Stratasys/Objet Merger News, Precious Metals, AM Hits New Milestone and a Trip to the Museum
In the course of my diligent efforts to keep you good people up to date on the state of additive manufacturing, I come across many interesting news items. I’ll gather them up once every few weeks and present them in ...Read More »
Most of the topics we cover here at Rapid Ready are technical in nature. New materials, 3D printers and 3D scanners along with other additive manufacturing (AM) news are what you’ve come to expect from the site. Every once in ...Read More »
While walking around at RAPID 2012 (see our previous Rapid Ready coverage) I had the unusual experience of people offering to make 3D scans of my head. Though interesting, I declined. As anyone that has ever met me will attest, ...Read More »
I really wanted to name this post something snappy. Attack of the Clones, maybe. For the sanity of my editor, I resisted (also, this is part three, not two). For the whole story on the pending collision of 3D printing ...Read More »
