Markforged Wants to Simplify Manufacturing Process for 3D Printing and Raises $30 million for Industrial 3D Printing
Markforged raises $30 million for industrial 3D printing
“A key early application of 3D printing is within the factory,” he wrote, in an email to VentureBeat. “The future of the factory is comprised of custom 3D printed parts that are incorporated into final products, and 3D parts printed to support the machines within the factories themselves.”
3D printing is indeed a hot sector that promises cheaper and faster manufacturing. Be it for sports shoes or food, several sectors are sniffing an opportunity. HP and Deloitte also recently announced that they are teaming up on 3D printing and digital manufacturing services.
But when it comes to manufacturing, Mark is skeptical about the other players. “Other startups offer 3D printers that either cannot print a range of materials or are not printing parts strong enough to dramatically impact manufacturing,” he wrote.
