Apple May Be Looking to Bite into 3D Printing

Regardless of how much the experts dither over whether the price of additive manufacturing (AM) stocks are rising above actual value, interest remains strong in companies such as Stratasys and 3D Systems. This, along with adoption of the technology by companies like GE and Ford, continues to show the continuing growth of AM, and that growth is bound to draw the attention of other entities in the business world. In October, we reported on HP’s announcement that it intends to produce at least one 3D printer in 2014. That decision seems a natural fit and ends long-time speculation that HP was eyeing AM as a new business opportunity.
