stratasys_logo_transparentAmidst all the euphoria and of magical energy surrounding 3D printing not long ago, there was bound to be a fall a fewwhere; and while indeed there has been in terms of financial reports being issued by 3D printing industry titans over at very least the past year, this is confusing to most. As one advancement after another is churned out, and revolutions are proclaimed to be taking place in only of each sector of medical to car to fashion—and far beyond—why do the largest companies seem to be faltering while so most other extra
