Thanks, Greg, I agree with your comments. Developing a wider range of materials for their machines is definitely needed. So is an open materials market for the high-end industrial printers.

Smart, long-term business move by Statasys.  As stated in the article, this vertical integration will accelerate the company's efforts to develop new manufacturing materials.  Good synergy and financial strength should result from a company that develops both 3D printers and the specialty materials needed by their customers.

Exotic materials for all the home printers needs to be more of a focus. The mushy ABS of the average printer isn't exactly blowing anyone's hair back.

@Ali: Yes it will open new doors for new things in the future but also you do need to consider the cost factor too. Its something you should look at before making certain decisions.

More material integration would result in opening new doors for Stratasys and provide variety for the more complex manufacturing processes. Though cost improvement is an important factor in 3D printing, i think material compatibility comes a close second. This is definitely good news for Stratasys and also for the consumers.

Developing new materials for 3D printing are a hot subject right now and likely to get hotter. Stratasys will likely be in the forefront of some of this R&D. Stay tuned for more news about materials from several different sources.

How 3D printing fits into the digital thread, and the relationship between its uses for prototyping and for manufacturing, was the subject of a talk by Proto Labs' Rich Baker at last week's Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis.
Some carbon composite processes are moving into volume auto manufacturing, while intensive R&D is being conducted on many fronts to fast-track material and process development.
How can automakers, aerospace contractors, and other OEMs get new metal alloys that are stronger, harder, and can survive ever higher temperatures? One way is to redesign their crystalline structures at the nanoscale and microscale.
According to freelance website Upwork, demand has risen sharply since last year for engineers with experience of all kinds in 3D printing and AM.
Although a lot of the excitement about 3D printing and additive manufacturing surrounds its ability to make end-products and functional prototypes, some often ignored applications are the big improvements that can come by using it for tooling, jigs, and fixtures.
