Stratasys just announced the launch of the Objet500 Connex3 at the SolidWorks World 2014, which started yesterday in San Diego and is open until Wednesday the 29th.

WhiteClouds – 3D Printing For Everyone

Just the other day I got introduced to this great new 3D printing initiative on the web called WhiteClouds. This nine-months-old company based in Ogden, Utah with (already) a staff of 21 full-timers and 7 part-timers has a great mission: Building the bridge between 3D printing and the general public.


Today, there is a big gap between having heard of 3D printing and being able to do something with it. WhiteClouds is trying to fill that gap by providing two kinds of services. When you don’t have any experience with 3D printing but you’ve got a great idea you would like to realise, WhiteClouds gives you the opportunity to collaborate with their in-house designers. Together you can make your idea come to life, no experience needed!
