Stratasys, makers of the interesting FDM 900MC digital manufacturing system, have dropped marketing of the Arcam line of devices. They had been marketing the European-based Arcam products, which apparently specialize in printing 3D metal objects.
What does this mean? We think that the strongly increasing demand for non-metallic printing (which appears to be more mature at this stage) has caused Stratasys to focus more on that market. This is good news, since we believe that their focus will result in speedier development of this form of 3D technology, and this means more capability at lower cost.
