3D Printing Solutions for Micro Manufacturing Components

You don’t need a pandemic to tell you that the world is ultimately ruled by the small things, whether it’s superbugs or parasites or bacteria-eating viruses. At the end of the day, humans are just vessels for hosts of different microorganisms. Maybe that’s helped shape our ability to innovate at the microscopic scale, leading to […]

A 3D Printing Medical Device Company for 3D Models

The emerging technologies that we cover on Nanalyze are poised to disrupt almost every industry on the planet, which is perhaps why just about every business on the planet has started calling itself a technology company. Perhaps no industry will experience this seismic shift more than healthcare. We’ve been covering a ton of AI healthcare […]

Formlabs: A Vertically Integrated 3D Printing Startup

Last month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, toys for adults were officially allowed into the exhibition for the first time. One of the companies on the show floor was Dame Products, which produces a variety of devices for the ladies. The company also uses 3D printers for prototyping. It’s a little fact […]

What’s Happening with 3D Printing Stock Titomic (TTT)?

For your average John Doe investor with a brokerage account, investing in disruptive technologies like 3D printing can seem futile. Even if you can avoid the over the counter (OTC) companies pretending to be pure-play stocks, investing in actual pure-play stocks may empty your wallet simply because the entire business model changed. Even if you […]

Ten 3D Printing Startups That Took Funding in 2019

It’s that time of year again where we talk about how disappointed we are with the poor performance of the current crop of 3D printing stocks, pinning our hopes on the next generation of 3D printing startups to fulfill the promise of the much-hyped technology. The latest publicly traded 3D printing company, SmileDirectClub (SDC), cut […]

Desktop Metal 3D Printers Set to Disrupt Manufacturing

Fake news is a term that has been bandied about quite liberally the last few years. Politics aside, most news narratives tend to be pretty black and white, while the reality is that there are usually shades of grey to any story. Take the ongoing saga of 3D printing. We’ve certainly written loads about how […]

Can 3D Printing of Alternative Proteins Take Off?

Regular readers will be familiar with Gartner’s Hype Cycle for emerging technologies, which graphically represents the ups and downs that most new technologies undergo, as they move from the “that’s super cool” stage to “what’s it good for” stage to “here’s how we can actually make money” stage. We often refer to the Hype Cycle […]

Is Protolabs a 3D Printing Stock Yet?

We recently wrote about the dismal performance of 3D printing stocks which might be explained by a shift in the business model for the 3D printing industry from a 3D printer on every corner to what we used to call “3D printing bureaus.” It’s a revolution for the manufacturing industry, something that’s now being called […]

The Poor Performance of 3D Printing Stocks

Oftentimes our overworked MBAs will be writing about a stock and say something like “Stock Y had a great return of +56% over the past rolling year.” We’re always quick to point out that without a reference point, that return means absolutely nothing. If a broader market index returned +75% over the same time frame, […]

Nine 3D Bioprinting Companies Making Progress

When trying to get your arms around who is doing what for any given technology, things change quickly. In our recent piece on artificial intelligence for drug discovery, we noted how the number of players in this space has exploded to more than 125 startups using machine learning to improve some aspect of the drug […]
