Voxel8 is a Boston-based, Harvard spin-out startup that is integrating the printing of conductive materials directly into 3D printing. The future is pretty obvious at this point: I’ve previously mentioned conductive ink and 3D printing — combining the two is an obvious step

Autodesk is working on software called “Project Escher” where groups of 3D additive-printers divide the printing of a single large piece. I find especially fascinating the obvious ability to integrate non-additive-printing assembly or fabrication techniques into the production line: Project Escher could also be
