5 Examples of Global Innovation in Materials

“Move over Graphene: Next-Gen 2D Materials Could Revolutionize Technology,” was the title of an article last month by Discover which talked about a family of “atomically thin” nanomaterials that will usher in a new era of material innovation. It’s not like graphene needs to move over much. In our recent piece on The Long Road to […]

Stryker’s Adoption of Robotics and 3D Printing

As the Nanalyze brand continues to grow, so do the number of emails we receive on any given day. From the interesting schizophrenics that email us, to the uninteresting public relations people that think we’ll drop everything and write about their paying clients for free, people email us with all kinds of different questions. One commonly asked […]

Why is Nano Dimension Stock Falling?

Investing your own money successfully isn’t as hard as most people think. Still, it takes some time and effort. Most people would rather pay a competent financial advisor for advice instead, and they will probably tell you about the importance of diversification, why your age has something to do with your tolerance for risk, the usefulness […]

When Will We Start to See 3D Printed Cars?

The real value behind 3D printing is what some refer to as “distributed manufacturing“, the idea that we no longer have to build everything at a single centralized factory but instead we can build at multiple decentralized locations. In addition to saving on transport and shipping costs, another value-add is that of flexibility. Imagine a world someday where […]

8 NewSpace Startups Prove it IS Rocket Science

All this talk about Elon Musk taking everyone to Mars got us to thinking about sci-fi movies that feature cool spaceships. Those of us from a certain generation favor the USS Enterprise. The new movies are a blast, even if Kirk doesn’t get the hook-up with blue-skinned alien babes like in the Shatner days. But […]

3D Printing and Distributed Additive Manufacturing

Last year we took input from 4 key technology thought leaders and created a list of 30 emerging technologies that technology investors should be aware of. One of these emerging technologies was “distributed manufacturing” which Scientific American described as a process where “the raw materials and methods of fabrication are decentralized and the final product is manufactured very close to the […]

The Top 12 Venture Capital Firms You Should Know About

An expert knowledge of finance isn’t a prerequisite to writing good content about investing. Sure, it helps to know some of the terminology like what the “efficient market hypothesis” is but when all is said and done, we’re here because we want to identify the most exciting emerging technologies out there that have a high […]

3D Printing Software – Who Are the Main Players?

We’ve already written up the top five 3D printing startups of 2016 and the top five 3D modeling companies. To get from a 3D model to a 3D printer, however, usually requires a printer management tool that can prep a file for 3D printing. These tools may simply send a file to the printer and, […]

Top 5 3D Modeling Software Companies

Upon covering the top five 3D printing startups of 2016, it’s worth noting that, without 3D modeling, 3D printing would be more or less impossible. 3D modeling, or computer-aided design (CAD), is the digital creation of three-dimensional objects for entertainment (animation, gaming, etc.), planning and simulating designs that will be executed in the physical world, […]

The Top 5 3D Printer Companies Funded in 2016

After the hype bubble sent 3D printing stocks tumbling in 2014, the industry is starting to recover, shedding much of the fat associated with consumer 3D printing. Instead, industrial 3D printers have become the focus, with even desktop 3D printer manufacturers focusing heavily on the application of affordable 3D printing for prototyping and designing, rather […]
