KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAIt is informative to watch how the 3D printing industry rises and spreads in individual countries. Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot of Poland. One of the country’s most frequent headline-grabbers is Olsztyn-based Zortrax, which has been instrumental in facilitating 3D printing education in Polish schools, but the country is home to most extra
companies, institutions and people who have helped to create the industry up to where it is in the present day. Recently, those companies, institutions and people gathered together at the country’s latest 3D Printing Days event, which was held at FabLab Kielce of March 10-11.

Among the companies at 3D Printing Days was HBOT 3D, which has impressed us in the past with their versatile, eponymous 3D printing device and skilled modeling work. Now the Wroclaw-based company has announced the latest model of the HBOT – the HBOT 3D F300. Officially added at 3D Printing Days, the F300 boasts several new showcases and improvements, which include:
