3D Systems attended EuroMold this week, one of the largest trade fair conferences for design, moldmaking, and technology. The concept for EuroMold according to their website is “A unique fair concept that closes the gap between industrial designers, product developers, producers, suppliers, and end-users.”

While we were there, we made many new announcements throughout the week including next generation ProJet 3D printers, Quickparts coming to Europe, new VisiJet X material, and a new FreshFiber sculpture case app. There were also many 3D printed items that were for sale during EuroMold including the Cube, 3D printed shoes, robots, phone cases, and so much more!

EuroMold goers were very enthusiastic and impressed with all our printers and products. To see all our photos and details from Euromold, please visit our Facebook, Flickr, YouTube or Twitter pages!

3D printing has come a long way. In the 1990s, 3D printing was reserved for prototypes, toys and little gadgets. Though that was remarkable for its time, things have changed a little bit. Thanks to Rapidform, a 3D scanning company that we acquired last month, we can produce buildings and people by using a scanning device. This link discusses how far 3D printing has come with the help of Rapidform and Bastech, a reseller of 3D Systems. Check out the article!
