This week, we've got a TON of new 3D Printing materials, as well as some acquisitions, investments, and Desktop Metal going PUBLIC!
00:00 Intro

00:11 New BASF, DM, Markforged Materials
Starting off we've got BASF releasing a NEW metal filament, Ultrafuse 17-4 PH. This is, as the name suggests, 17-4 Stainless Steel.

On top of stainless steel, if you DO want to spend $100k+ on a machine to print metal in FDM, both Markforged and Desktop metal now have the ability to print Copper.

SmarTech Analysis is also projecting that over 1.4 million kilograms of copper powder, both pure and copper alloys, will ship for 3D Printing use by 2029.

The Materials giant BASF and its subsidiary Sculpteo, launched four new Nylon PA 11 powders created from "renewable" castor oil.

PA11 MJF, Ultrasint PA11 CF, Ultrasint PA11 ESD, and Ultrasint PA11 – developed for selective laser sintering and HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology, present new opportunities to print high ductility and impact strength parts.

Next, Markforged also released a new ESD-Safe Onyx

04:34 AMUG 2021 - It's BACK!
We've got AMUG finally coming back as a live event! This year it's been moved to Orlando, Florida

06:08 Dental 3D Bigger than Ever
In 2021 ALONE, Dental 3D Printing is expected to Reach $3.1B in revenue. That's right, 3.1 BILLION.

07:11 Stratasys BUYS ORIGIN
Stratasys BOUGHT the company Origin, who makes high-end SLA machines for performance materials.

At Vision Miner, all our machines are open-material systems -- specifically for high-temp, high-performance materials like PEEK and ULTEM, used in Aerospace, Medical, Automotive, Oil & Gas -- you name it. We love seeing this from SSYS. Check out our shop if you want to know more, at! And, if you love it -- hit that like and subscribe button ;)

08:46 Desktop Metal goes PUBLIC
And in MORE investor news, Desktop Metal has FINALLY GONE PUBLIC! That's right, you too can now invest in this 3D Printing company -- they're changing the game, and you can go along for the ride with them on the New York Stock Exchange. Expected to reach a value of $5 Billion in the next 5-10 years, it's probably a good bet.
