Our parent company, 3D Systems
, just announced its plans to acquire Z Corp and Vidar...check out the full press release
. For those that don't know, Z Corp
also makes 3D printers as well as 3D scanners but I have to say that I am most looking forward to getting to know their 3D printers that print in full color
! Vidar has some amazing high end digitizing technologies and products that are geared towards medical applications (a big compliment to the 3D Systems portfolio).
All pretty cool stuff that I wanted to share as I know many of you are now following 3D printer news and technologies and this announcement is about as big as it gets in the world of 3D printing!
