As 3D Hubs reaches over 26,500 printing equipment in over 150 countries, the distributed 3D printing network continues to pump out monthly trend reports, fueled by their extensive user data. So, with a new month, comes a new Trend Report, detailing what’s new with the 3D Hubs network this February, 2016.

On the industrial front, the Objet Eden260 leads, followed by several varieties of ProJet machines and the EOSINT P 760, reflecting the expanding portfolio of “HD” printing equipment on the 3D Hubs network. The ~$350 da Vinci Jr. 1.0 3D printing device of XYZprinting is the number one trending printing device on the site, outpacing the Form 2, now at #3.

The Prusa i3 is increasing in popularity, as there are now 2,000 i3s in the 3D Hubs community. At the same time, there are now 3,000 MakerBot printing equipment in the community, as well. Unlike previous Trend Reports, this seems to be the initially to forgo via RepRap as a “manufacturer”, instead via the broader category of “Other”.

For the full Trend Report, head over to the 3D Hubs site. And manufacture certain to remain tuned for future month’s Trend Report, same trend-time, same trend-channel.
