We just received the news that Shapeways raised an additional $6.2 million funding round led by New York-based Lux Capital. The company previously raised $11.1 million from existing investors Union Square Ventures and Index Ventures, and it’s also gotten a loan commitment of $1.2 million from NYC Investment Fund.
Factory of the Future
With the help of this additional funding Shapeways is planning to expand its NYC facilities by building the Factory of the Future. What this factory is all about is still a big mystery to us but we will make sure to tell you all about it as soon as we know more.
