Good move for growing into strategic markets by purchasing recognized names in the industry.  Seems 3D Systems has a good long range vision of where they want to be and an effective business roadmap for getting there.

To have a company that can capture even the smallest detail of an object through complex scanning mechanisms and then re-create it and another company that can reproduce these recreations very accurately and in large numbers means that we will be seeing more and better products from 3D systems in the near future.

The combination of Gentle Giant's attention to detail and 3D systems ability to print whatever  comes their way is great for both companies and a very potent combination indeed. Because both of these also have loyal and secure customer segments, they may be taking over many other market segments working as a combined force.

The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
